We're offering WTB's Proterra Tough i30 wheelset for only £349 (saving you £200). Perfect with any Edit or Filter frame.

We have long been fans of WTB's KOM Tough rims. It's not always easy to find a rim that's the right width, the right weight but is also tough enough to stand up to the kind of riding we do. Especially for the rear wheel. We've found that even expensive rims from supposedly high-end brands can let you down when things get rowdy. But the KOM Tough i30 rims hit the sweet-spot. Just the right width at 30mm (internal), tough, strong and light enough (531g) without sacrificing on reliability.

The KOM Tough i30 rim has a 30mm internal width which is just right for modern high-volume tyres. They're constructed with WTB's 'Dual I-Beam' structure which gives them the strength required without making them too heavy. In between the spoke holes and the tubeless tape is WTB's unique Solid Strip - a durable nylon layer that protects the rim tape internally.

When WTB launched the Proterra Tough i30 27.5" wheelset it was a no brainer for us. The wheels are laced with DB black spokes in a three-cross pattern for maximum strength and tied in to the rims with brass nipples. WTB Frequency hubs use EZO sealed cartridge bearings and last really well. The rear hub uses a low drag, 6-pawl freehub design. And yes, these are the wheels we on pour most popular bikes: the Edit and Filter Luxe and Deluxe bikes.

If you're in the market for an Edit or Filter frame or you're planning to build up a new bike, these are great wheels.
