Looking for a fast and light alloy wheel? The WTB Proterra Light i23 wheel checks all the boxes with top-tier EZO bearings, a swift 6-pawl freehub and a tubeless-ready setup.


  • Made from extruded 6069 aluminum alloy to optimize strength with a bead blast finish and durable water-transfer decals to keep your wheels looking fresh
  • Open-cavity profile features thin, weight-optimized walls that provide an optimal blend of stiffness, resilience and efficiency
  • Wheel design combines the long-term reliability of a 3-cross lacing pattern with the weight savings of alloy nipples
  • 23 mm inner rim width provides the ideal tire profile for adventure road and gravel tires ranging 30–42 mm; also ideal for drop bar bikes with tires ranging 32—40 mm
  • Frequency hub features a low-drag, 6-pawl design that alternates contact between 2 sets of 3-pawl groupings to provide a responsive 5° of freehub engagement
  • WTB TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) is a standardized tubeless rim/tire system designed to meet international ETRTO standards
  • Durable nylon Solid Strip prevents TCS tubeless tape from pushing into the spoke holes and ensures a smooth interface between the tire and rim
  • This smooth surface makes it easier to mount a tire by preventing air from escaping around the bead at each indent during inflation
  • Solid Strip also helps protect the airtight system from puncture in the case of a broken spoke
  • Wheel comes with Solid Strip, TCS tubeless tape and black alloy valves already installed, making it ready for tubeless tires and sealant right out of the box
  • Ideal for adventure road, gravel and cyclocross usage
  • Hand-built in a WTB facility
  • Max rider weight: 265 lbs.
