For 2021, the Z lite wheelset inludes our new and improved hub design, the "44" hub. A Beefier hub with bigger internals, featuring 108 points of engagement, help you generate more torque and transfer of power for out of saddle efforts. We upgraded to a 44mm ratchet rings and offer compatibility with Shimano Micro Spline 12-speed and Campagnolo Ekar 13-speed groupset. The "44" hub has been updated to include a slip-fit system to easily swap out end caps to accommodate, 15mm,12mm or QR axles, helping you "future-proof" your wheelset.
The Z lite maintains its lightweight feel and is compatible with wider tires with an 18mm internal width. It features a front 18-spoke radially laced hub and a 24-spoke radial/2-cross rear for stiffness, strength, and great response.
