    1.9 Dlux delrin wheels

    I was excited when Erik asked me to test out his new wheels for the 1.9. The design is of the wheels is something new to me. Once I became familiar with them they were a snap to put together. The beads fit cleanly and tight in the bead locks. I like the ability to adjust the width of your wheels with ease, just swap out the internal spacers. With the design I was easily able to fit two thicker knuckle weights on each wheel. I will have to test out what weight will work best for me. I usually run a lot of weight in my wheels. My original set up I ran 8.7 oz. in each front wheel and 5.6 oz. in each rear. The new wheels weigh 2.9 oz. for each front and 3.1 oz. for each in the rear. With the knuckle weights it puts the front up to 8.1 oz. for each side. Close to what I usually run. I have to look at how to add some weight to the rear. I have a comp this weekend so I will have an opportunity to give them a proper testing. I am using 600 SLW hubs in the front and 475 SLW hubs in the rear. The front width is 7 in and the rear is 7in. I like that you can use whatever SLW hub to get the width that works best for you.
    More to come!

    I need to see about those. According to UPS, the Dlux knuckle weights are at home waiting for my arrival. Does he have a price for them yet?

    You will like the knuckle weights, they are a prototype at the moment. I am suppose to beat on them and give him some feedback on possible changes and improvements. In my opinion they do need a weight ring or something to add a little weight to them. They are very sturdy and light.

    I'll get my pics off my phone tomorrow. Today was hectic, being my first day back in the office in two weeks.

    I have been impressed by the wheels. I added the ring to add some weight to the wheel.
