Cycling Weekly Verdict

Scribe's Gravel Wide++ wheels combine an impressively light weight with a robust construction that's proved resilient to rock strikes. That'd be great just on its own, but Scribe has gone on to peg them at a relatively low price and offers a full lifetime crash replacement service. With the rigours and abuse gravel riding can subject a set of wheels to, it can be hard to justify getting a set of carbon hoops, but the Gravel Wide++ flip that equation entirely on its head.
