Emporia GA Performance Gravel Rear Wheel 650b

Emporia GA Performance Gravel Rear Wheel 650b

Offering speed and bump-taming strength at an incredibly attractive price point, the Emporia GA Performance rear wheel helps any rider explore further and faster across previously uncharted gravel trails, forest tracks and broken-up back roads.


The alloy rim is light but bomb-proof, and it possesses a 25mm internal measurement to better support the sidewalls of tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres. This additional tyre support decreases rolling resistance, improves traction and enhances comfort when using lower inflation pressures across the roughest ground.


A HED GP Performance hub houses smooth bearings and accepts Center Lock disc rotors to keep braking positive and controlled. Sapim Sprint spokes complete the build and are arranged in a torsionally stiff two-cross lacing pattern.
