Project 321 Debuts Enve Wheelsets, New-ish Single Speed Hubs
Project 321 is best known for their Lefty hubs and Lefty fork adapters has started offering complete wheelsets with ENVE’s new UST tubeless rims.
They’re available with any of Project 321′s hubs, which include QR/15 or 20mm ISO disc fronts, Lefty front and geared or single speed rear with several axle options. For the rims, you can get either XC or AM models, 26″ or 29″ diameters and they’re built with Sapim CX Ray spokes. Weights come in as low as 1,505g for a Lefty setup and 1,545g for a 15mm thru axle (without rim tape or valve). From there, you can upgrade the bearings to Enduro Zero Ceramics and -if you haven’t noticed in the pic above- color matched ENVE logos that coordinate with the hubs!
Hubs are available in REd, Blacke, Blue, Green, Gold and Silver. The hubs’ logo are engraved after anodization, so what you’re seeing on them is shined up alloy rather than a sticker or etching. Nice touch.
Introduced last April but only recently updated on their website are the new Singlespeed rear hubs and 15mm thru-axle fronts. Like all of their hubs, they’re made in the USA and come with a three year warranty. The ISO hub is available with all three front axle standards (QR/15 convertible and standalone 20mm) in 28 and 32 hole drillings. Claimed weight is 169g with standard ABEC 5 bearings. Price is $185.00.
The new Singlespeed rear hub is $390 and comes in at a claimed 347g. It’s built with Industry Nine’s freehub internals, which we’re a fan of (See how those are made here) and is available with either QR or Bolt-On 135mm axle setups.
