We spied Haven 650B wheels aboard Devinci’s 2014 Troy and now they’re official. Starting in alloy models for now, they’ll also offer a budget Vice 650B wheel. The Haven comes in at 1720g for 650B. For comparison, the 26″ is 1650g and the 29er is 1785g. They’ll be available with 15mm or 20mm thru axle fronts and QR or 12×142 rear ends. They’ll retail for $955.
The Vice wheels come in at 1750g (650B) and retail for $750.
The Havoc 650B wheels we spotted in prototype form on Steve Smith’s Devinci are, for now, just that: Prototypes.
