Graham had heard about the Pacenti rims, their ride quality, build quality and decent weight for a wider alloy rim (450g). Built with an affordably light and durable DT350 straight pull front hub, Sapim CX-Ray spokes all around and an 11 speed compatible PowerTap G3 hub. 28 holes rear, cross-three and 24 front radially laced.  The set weighs in a 1560g.  He finished up the set with ENVE titanium road skewers.

Graham sent a note commenting on the wheels after the 2014 Tour de Victoria gran fondo:

Brad … Loving the wheels. Bike corners like it’s on rails!
