Build time

These wheels are factory ordered from Hope. With hub colours, rim diameters and frame dimensions, there are too many combinations for us to stock. When we receive an order we will place an immediate order with Hope. Once they arrive at Moonglu we will check them over, check the spoke tension, fit the tubeless tape and valves and dispatch them straight away. Although we'd like this process to be seamless, it may take 2-3 weeks for delivery. 

Wheel Builder's Comments

Hope factory built wheels have always been popular and are a great upgrade wheel. Their Fortus wheels take this to the next level with wider rim profiles keeping their products on the curve of modern mountain bike trends. Our wheel building expert will check these wheels prior to dispatch or collection to make sure the spoke tension is even and balanced across the wheel.

Ask a Question
  • Hi, Firstly, can I use these wheels for gravel riding? Would be mounting 47mm gravel tyres ideally. Secondly, most places have a 15mm Thru axle on the front wheel and 12mm on the rear. It seems you have the option to have a 12mm Thru axle on the front wheel. Could you confirm that you are able to supply both wheels as a 12mm Thru axle?


    Thanks for the question. 

    These would be perfect for gravel riding and would be ideal for 47mm wide gravel type tyres.

    Most places sell these as MTB wheels but we've sold plenty of sets for gravel bikes and as we are riders ourselves recognise the trend and offer the option for 12mm thru axle end caps at no extra cost. Our website allows you to pick the exact axle specification you need. 

    Let me know if you have any other questions. 

    Kind Regards
    For Moonglu
