TR35 Onyx Hook Flange Custom Berd Wheelset
Meticulously designed to be lightweight, durable, and featuring a wider stance for more traction, the TR35 was built with aggressive XC and trail riders in mind. Based off our our popular TR32 platform, the TR35 is stiffer from side to side while still offering exceptional compliance through trail chatter. This translates to a comfortable ride-feel through rough singletrack, while railing corners will be more rewarding than ever.
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.
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.
