Moonglu Wheelworks hand built tubeless compatible road wheels

Premium quality road wheels, these rim brake road wheels will be reliable in all conditions with Hope's legendary RS4 road hubs and Aforce AL33 tubeless compatible rims.

Made in the UK by Hope Technology, RS4 road hubs hand built by Moonglu Wheelworks into Aforce tubeless rim brake only road rims.

We have paired the RS4 road specific hub with the AForce AL33 tubeless compatible road disc rim. With a 19.6mm inner width the AL33 can be paired with tyres from 25-40mm. 

  • Weight: 485g
  • A wind-tunnel proven aluminium alternative to deep carbon wheels
  • Manufactured to last, no cracking! Thanks to AF9X alloy construction
  • Welded joint ensures consistent braking, no rattling, easy tubeless setup, lower overall weight and increased joint integrity
  • Unique tubeless compatible design for tubeless setup and easy tire installation
  • Invisible weld, sandblasted matt black finish and laser engraving for understated elegance

These wheels will be built with Sapim Double Square Brass or Alloy external nipples. 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.

Build time

Before ordering these wheels, please understand that the wheels will generally be built to order from the component parts. Items shown instock will be instock in their component parts, ready to be laced up, tensioned and trued. In most cases we can't pluck these wheels off the shelf, pack them into boxes and dispatch them, if only life was that easy. We will do our utmost to make the turnaround time as quick as possible (usually 7-10 days), but if you are in doubt, please Contact us first. 

Wheel Builder's Comments

The AL33 is one of the most advanced aluminium rims currently available. With a shape similar to premium carbon rims, the AL33 is probably the most aerodynamic alloy rim on the market. Building them backs up the build quality. Paired with the reliable RS4 hubs and you've got a seriously good set of road wheels. Compatible with Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo road groupsets.
