Novatec's Factor 727 carbon enduro wheels slot in at 27mm wide internally with an asymmetric design. The company worked with Schwalbe on the carbon rims to ensure that they're Procore compatible. Why is this cool? If you're dropping a lot of money on a carbon wheelset, it's nice to know you have the reassurance of some impact protection. The rims are hookless and feature a new layup for added vertical compliance while maintaining stiffness side to side. They are tubeless ready with Shimano or SRAM cassette compatibility, and weigh 806g for the front / 943g rear in the 27.5 size.
