Onyx’s new Hook Flange Vespers have been designed specifically for use with Berd spokes. Previously, wheels using Berd spokes required careful hub preparation ahead of the building process, but the new Hook Flange hubs utilize existing loops on the spokes for an efficient and straightforward implementation. Because Berd spokes are so light, Onyx sought to decrease weight on the Vesper hubshell to match. With the smaller and lighter spoke flange dimensions on centerlock Vespers, it made sense to create Hook Flange versions in centerlock standard only.Flange hubs are centerlock only allowing for the lightest possible Onyx hub variation.
Berd spokes are tough, reliable and feature a compliant ride-quality which plays really well with modern gravel and short travel bikes. Perhaps most importantly, the weight savings are considerable. The spokes are made out of an ultra lightweight fabric, so there’s a whole lot of grams to be saved by making the swap over from steel.
