My take on Triathlon wheels

Freedom of components selection is the best thing in the wheelbuilding profession. If you're not forced to a specific brand and you understand how the good wheel works, then you are able to create and build the best wheels possible. 

In today's entry, probably the best triathlon wheels I've ever made. Truly aerodynamic, quiet, without any drag, and constantly engaged. I'm very excited to introduce to you the Onyx hubs!

Duke Fury Jack - hard enduro wheels in Super Boost Plus standard

Although I'm 100% roadie / gravel rider I also enjoy building mountain bike wheels, and on this project, I had a unique opportunity to build a wheelset for very experienced and demanding rider. Moreover, the wheels were built in the latest axle's standards - Super Boost Plus.

Triplet hubs & wheels from BlackCat

The more wheels you build, the more you learn. Experience is something that comes with time and amount of wheels going through your workshop. Rims, hubs, spokes, wheels - you see them all... those good and those really bad... but well marketed.
On top, if you ride them all, you get something which others don't - you confront theory vs practice. You test them not only on the paper but primarily in real-time conditions, in my case: the Swiss Alps. 

Dear reader, today I'd like to introduce you to BlackCat triplet wheels.
