Product Spotlight: Loaded Precision Signature AmX Wheels 3

Bling bling! Shown here are the Loaded Precision Signature AmX wheels. They feature Loaded's Signature hubs laced to AmX rims. 2270 grams for the set.

The 32 hole Signature Hubs are constructed from aluminum alloy.

You can rock a 20mm front axle...

... or 15mm front axle, or a quick release. Lots of options.

Front axle adapters are easy to swap out. Simply pull them out.

Every adapter uses o-rings to create a seal and keep things quiet. No rattling here!

The front axle is put together in a way that ensures it'll always stay aligned.

Note the detailed machine work. So clean! (and it saves some weight)

IS 6-bolt rotor mounts work with a large variety of disc brakes.

14 gauge, T302 stainless steel spokes tie everything together.

Brass nipples keep the wheels snug, and when it comes time to true them, you'll prefer these over the aluminum option.

AmX rims come pre-drilled for schrader valves.

Can you see the rim joint? It's almost invisible. We dig that.

A generous 29mm rim width is perfect for high-volume tires.

The Signature Rear Hub is easily convertible between 135mm QR, 135x12mm, and 142x12mm axle options. It's also available in single-speed and 150mm versions.

One of the coolest things about these wheels is that the axle adapters are included in the box. Rear adapters on the left, front on the right.

The chromoly cassette body might not be the lightest, but it's much more durable than the aluminum alternative.

24 points of engagement mean that your cranks will engage pretty quickly, but there is still a large contact surface for when you're really hammering on your pedals.

Three spring-loaded pawls do all of the work.

There are four sealed bearings in the rear hub and two up front.

This seal helps keep water and gunk out of the cassette body, ensuring the wheels will spin longer before needing service.

Loaded also makes a full line of bars, stems, headsets, headset spacers, seatposts, seat clamps, pedals, and wheel skewers. Every part comes in black, gray, silver, gold, red, green, and blue color options, including the wheels and spokes.

    great to see Loaded getting some press and exposure. been riding their rims (not complete wheel set) for two seasons without an issue. here is my overview of the complete line from Oct. 2009. It's evolved some since, for the better.

    These look sweet! I wonder if they'll do a custom job with green hubs and nipples on white rims...hmmm....but then again, I'm currently waiting for the 9t sprocket rear cassette revolution, so maybe I shouldn't look at these any more just now... :-)
