Looking for a set of road wheels for the RAT thru axle system. Front thru axle is 15mm and rear is 12mm. It's a bloody minefield with regards to this RAT(Rapid axle technology) system. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

    So far as I can tell from reading about the RAT system and from my own Thru Axle wheels, so long as the axle diamater is correct it doesn't matter what kind of thru axle is used (RAT, Maxle, Shimano, whatever) - the axle is specific to the frame rather than wheel.

    I bought myself a set of these for a new disc bike project I'm working on as they were 30% off over the bank holiday weekend - pleasantly surprised with the apparent build quality although haven't actually ridden them yet: ... eelset.htm

    Was less than I could buy the equivalent hubs, rims and spokes for and build them myself. (novatec D771/772 hubs, kinlin XR31t rims)
