Long Term Review: Nukeproof Horizon V2 Wheelset For Enduro Riding

nukeproof horizon v2 wheel review

Last year, Nukeproof updated their long-standing aluminium enduro wheelset, adventurously naming it the Horizon V2. The overhaul saw Nukeproof replace 29mm WTB rims with their very own 30mm internal width rims. They maintain a symmetrical profile, but now lace those rims to the Horizon V2 fast engagement hub, increasing the POE from 42 to 102.

Sram Rival Etap Axs Groupset Review

Sam Challis Monday, October 18, 2021 - 14:44 An exercise in scaling back, Sram's new Rival eTap AXS raises the bar for mid-tier groupsets 4.0 / 5 £1,516 as tested Sram has for some time been widely seen as the most innovative of the big three groupset manufacturers. In 2015 the brand made its flagship Red groupset not just electronic, but wireless. Within a few years Sram had added an extra sprocket to the cassette and brought the wireless technology down a tier to its Force level components.

The manufacturer has done this mainly by changing the materials ...
