Built By Jerry | Rule

Regular price $1,750.00 1390 grams

Rule: The Rule is my "one wheel to rule them all” with a new profile that is shallower for better vertical flex and an asymmetrical profile for better lateral stiffness with the shallow rim. The result is a more resilient rim that is stronger and tracks better. 

For 2021, rims are now constructed using graphene doped Toray T800 carbon fiber. Graphene doping is a new process using wherein a very small amount of graphene (under 2%) is added to the carbon matrix during processing. Scientific testing has demonstrated significant increases in strength and impact resistance results from the graphene doping process. Our testing has shown this to be true in practice, allowing pretty significant weight reductions in the rim construction.

The Rule is the same shape as the new GCX model but with a sturdier layup and 28 hole drilling. The GCX is aggressively designed for maximum performance on race day, while the Rule is well rounded with a stronger overall build while still being a light, responsive wheelset that you can use anywhere, anytime.

Why the Rule verses the GCX? The GCX rim requires compromises to achieve a no holds barred race wheelset. The Rule is 375 grams vs incredibly light 310 grams and is laced 28H 3-cross vs 24H 2-cross for the GCX. The Rule is a very solid rim that builds into a dependable wheelset from 1300 (DT240) to 1400 (DT350) grams that is good to go wherever you want to take it. Racing, adventure rides, loaded touring, all no problem. One wheel to rule them all.  

All wheels come tubeless taped with premium alloy valve stems installed, ready for you to mount tubeless tires. Through axles are not provided with wheels as they are part of the bike frame system.

One wheel to rule them all!

That was the purpose and that's been my experience. These are my every-day, every-purpose wheels on my cyclocross bike. They've seen lots of road use and lots of high speed trail use. They hold up great, tires set up nicely, and absolutely zero complaints here

Love these Wheels!!

I love these wheels!!!! Incredible strength to weight ratio, I'm very impressed with the build quality on these wheels. I'm very aggressive on these wheels bombing down MTB single-track on a cross bike, they have seen some abuse and yet they are still 100% true. Goes to show the care and attention Jerry puts into each and every wheel he builds. He is also refreshing to deal with on a customer service level, very fast with his responses to my questions and he kept me up to date on the timeline when there was a small delay due to supply issues. Overall I am very pleased with these wheels and will be ordering another set of wheels from Jerry in the near future.

These wheels are built with the best components and with extreme care and skill. But, perhaps what sets them apart is that the builder also adds humor to the mix. You can't go wrong buying a set of NEXT carbon wheels

So Good!

Love riding these wheels, transformed the way my bike rides. So light and quick! Have used them for every ride and race I have done for the last 2 years. Still as solid now as when I first put them on.

These wheels are amazing

I've been on this wheel set (The Rule) for about 3 seasons now. No Complaints whatsoever. Have ridden these in many gravel races/events and been very happy. I run them with Maxxis Rambler 40s. Jerry is awesome and stands by his wheels.
