The Lightning rear wheel uses the sealed, 36h, 3/8″ female axle Storm Cassette Hub with 9t driver laced to a single wall, 36h Lightning Rim. This is designed to be a very affordable rear wheel for the budget minded rider.
The Lightning Rim is a single wall rim designed to compete directly with more expensive double wall rims. The added strength is found in the rim’s extra-thick sidewalls, flat-top bead hooks and its geometry cues that are taken directly from higher-end rim designs. The Lightning Rim offers great performance at an exceptional price, and it comes from the same design office that has created proven rim designs for Odyssey and G-Sport.
Storm Cassette Hub
The Storm cassette hub is a low flange design with precision sealed cartridge bearings, 14mm chromoly center axle with 3/8″ axle bolts that uses 17mm wrench flats or 6mm Allen wrench slots. The hub uses a sealed 9t chromoly driver for RHD only.
