Moonglu Wheelworks Hand Built E-Mountain Bike wheels

Heavy duty Electric Mountain Bike Specific Wheels. Hope Pro 4 hubs built into DT Swiss HX531 35mm wide profile all mountain and enduro rims.

Electric mountain bikes place high demands on wheels. Whether it is a broken spoke every other ride or rims that aren't up to the job, E-mountain bikes place unique stresses on wheels that were never designed for that purpose. DT Swiss have taken their knowledge of high end mountain bike wheels and produced a range of E-bike specific rims in a variety of widths to suit the growing market of modern E mountain bike. 

The HX531 is 35mm external and 30mm internal, this will easily support tyres greater than 2.4" and the reinforced spoke bed will prevent premature rim failure from spoke pull through. Tubeless compatible. 

All our DT Swiss rim equipped wheels now have the option of silver alloy Squorx Prolock spoke nipples or Sapim Double Square Secure Lock Brass in Silver or Black. All these options are compatible with DT PHR washers. The use of these nipples allows us to use a slightly longer spoke for added strength and to build the wheels from the outside, reducing tooling marks on the spoke nipple.

  • Hello Neil What would the maximum weight be for DT Swiss HX531 on Hope Pro 4 hubs ( Boost ( 110x15 / 148x 12 microspline ) I know these are aimed at Ebikes however I assume these can be used on other bikes for the fuller rider ? Thanks Luke


    Many thanks for the email. 

    I would rate these wheels up to 150kg. That is the maximum weight on the DT HX1700 factory wheels and they use the same rim as the HX531. 

    You're absolutely correct, they don't have to be used on E-bikes. They're designed for heavy duty use. 

    If you have any further questions please ask. 

    Kind Regards
    For Moonglu

  • Hi, I’m possibly looking for a pair if these to fit my 2020 Kenevo expert, could you please advise lead time? Or suggest any other options that would be suitable? Thanks Phil


    Good evening, thanks for your message through our website. 

    Delivery on that wheelset will be 3-4 weeks. At the moment we are limited by delivery times from Hope. 

    I can't suggest any other wheels as I've not seen any on the market that are likely to be as robust as these rims. 

    Let me know if you have any further questions

    Kind Regards
    For Moonglu
