Chris’ Forbidden Dreadnought Bike Check
After getting along famously with the Dreadnought’s shorter travel brother the Druid last season, I decided on a two bike approach this year. I sold both my Druid and old downhill rig to build up this beastly Dreadsled for days when I’m itching to get steep and sendy.
My aim with these hoops was to create a no-fuss wheelset for aggressive all mountain riding comprised of components I would never have to worry about when out on the trail.
Tires: Maxxis Assegai, DD casing Maxxis DHR II, DD casing
Hubs: Chris King
In terms of hubs, Chris King still set the standard for performance and reliability so those were a no-brainer. Specs are centerlock, boost, and 32h.
