Conticomponents Asia is a regional distributor and an ODM in South East Asia, specializing in aftermarket components. Conti just introduced a new fat-bike wheelset to the market called the Wild Paw. The new wheel is the product of a one year three-party development and testing program between Conticomponents, 616 Fabrication and 9:Zero:7. The Wild Paw is a blend of American Ride Expertise and Asian Manufacturing.
Initial Offerings are Wild Paw 616a and 907a. The former is paired with US-made 616 Fabrication hubs for the most demanding Fat bike enthusiasts whilst the latter comes with price friendly Taiwan-made 9:Zero:7 hubs. Both are hand-built (with Sapim Race spokes) and quality-controlled, before shipping out to International customers. The test set of wheels that we have are the 616a. Angry Andy is the test pilot that will get to put the Wild Paws through their paces, but first we un-boxed them and hung them from the Park Scale.
The front weighed 2 Lbs. 15 oz. (1332.4g) and the rear 3 Lbs. 6oz (1530.9g)
Andy is going to put these wheels to the test over the next several weeks and report back with his findings.
