e*spec Plus wheels were custom engineered from the bottom up to withstand the added demands of heavier, high performance e-bikes, but they're equally at home on any MTB if strength and reliability are at the top of your priority list.
We designed the e*spec Plus rim starting with 6069 alloy for ultimate strength to weight, tough welded joints, and robust flanges which resist denting, but dent inward in the event of heavy impacts, to keep your tire in place and inflated.
They're drilled with a 28H front, 32H rear configuration to optimize weight, without compromising stiffness and strength where you need it. 27.5" rims have a 35mm inner width which amplifies tire stability and retention with wider e-Bike tires (like our 2.7" Zeppelin), and makes it perfect for Mullet builds. The 29" size comes with a 30mm inner width perfectly optimizing 2.3"-2.6" tire profiles for fast rolling predictable traction. e*spec Plus wheels spin fast and smooth on our custom e*spec hub that increases dynamic load ratings by 53%, and decreases axle deflection by 37%. e*spec hubs still have a quick 6-degree engagement, but use an outboard bearing to better support the driver body and disperse loads, with XD and Microspline freehub versions available.
The entire mechanism is triple-sealed, and uses a steel axle w/pinch bolt to decrease deflection. Rims and hubs are hand built to the highest standards using DT Competition Spokes, alloy nipples and nipple washers, producing a wheel with a respectable weight and attractive price tag for such an impressive spec.
Like all e*thirteen wheels, TRS Plus come ready to roll, with tubeless tape and Gen 2 Quickfill Valves installed, and spare spokes and nipples in the box.
