Berd’s new HAWK30 wheels are the product of a partnership between Berd and We Are One Composites to deliver spokes and rims made entirely in North America. We Are One is located in Kamloops British Columbia, Canada, and Berd is located in Hopkins, MN.
Light enough for XC racing but tough enough for gnarly trail rips and enduro runs, the HAWK30 wheels combine lightweight and vibration damping Berd spokes with 30 mm internal carbon rims.
The HAWK30 rims are only 18 mm deep. This unique design yields engineered radial compliance and high lateral stiffness. The combination of vibration damping Berd spokes and our new radial compliant rim means more speed over rough terrain and less rider fatigue.
With a wide 3.75 mm rim lip, Berd’s new rims spread out tire/rim impacts across a larger surface area to prevent tire and rim damage during acute impacts.
The HAWK30 wheelset is built around either the new Berd Talon Hub featuring hooked hub flanges designed to work specifically with Berd spokes along with a dual-sprung ratchet freehub in either 36t or 54t or Industry Nine Hydra Centerlock hubs, delivering almost instantaneous engagement and long-term reliability.
These Berd wheels are also available to be ordered using the Onyx Hook Flange Hub System for a $100 upcharge. This option is available in 12×142 (including single speed), 12×148, and 12×157 super boost rear spacing. Please allow up to 4-6 weeks for delivery of wheels with Onyx hubs.
