With the introduction of the Crawler a couple years back the folks at Origin8 got into the fat-bike game a bit earlier than most. Now, their new wheelsets seek to expand their fat-bike reach with a selection of affordable complete wheels.
The version we have here is a SRAM XD Driver compatible version. Made from aluminum these sealed bearing, modular hubs cover a multitude of applications and is convertible to standard QR, 12, 15, and 20mm thru axle. The rear hubs and cassette bodies feature 6 pawls / 54 points of engagement. For even more options the hubs are available in standard or straight pull design.
