Custom made wheelset SARS hub with Mavic X223 rims

This wheelset is custom made by a friend of mine.  The hub are sealed bearing hubs and they are quite light. However the Mavic rims are towards the heavy end. Total weight of the wheelset is approx 1.8kg which is not bad.

The spinning of the rear hub sound is also quite sharp and we love the sound of it. The movement is very smooth due to the seal bearing.

 He paid slightly above RM500 for this wheelset which is quite reasonable for the weight.

In my opinion, if you are looking to custom made a wheelset or want to build one this hub could be considered. Just pay a bit more and get lighter Mavic rims.
