Rob wanted a set of wide and stiff carbon wheels for his 26″ Yeti, and didn’t want to totally break the bank.  The DT 350 hubs keep cost down, but use the exact same freehub internals as the much more expensive 240S hubs.  While many companies are abandoning the 26″ format, Derby hasn’t forgotten 26″ riders, and the Derby rims are one of very few 26″ carbon rims available. They are super wide with a 32mm inner width, and are uber-burly and stiff.  DT Revolution spokes keep weight down.
