Questions & Answers (2) Q & A
Ultra hard wearing Carbide Super Sonic brake surface, allowing fantastic braking and wear characteristics. The carbide is projected at seven times the speed of sound on to the rim embedding it into the alloy. Unlike a ceramic surface it cannot flake away as it is part of the rim (not a layer). Single eyeletted cross country or fast touring rim.

The ONLY recommended brake blocks are Swisstop C.S.S. Blue V-brake blocks (SJSC part # 32142).

ConsWet weather braking, longevity
ProsBrake blocks don't wear down
Bought to replace alloy rims that wore out in 3 years.
The CSS rims don't wear down, but they polish smooth. After 24 months the wet weather braking was noticeably degraded. After 36 months, the rear wheel had polished unevenly, causing the brakes to grab. I have gone back to conventional alloy rims.

Are These Suitable For Rohloff Wheels, Or Does That Require Special Drilling?
17 May 2017

If the hub you own is a 36 hole it should work, however the only Rohloff hubs we stock are 32 hole.

Are These Rims Double Eyeleted?

Yes the Grizzly rims are double eyeleted.
