Hotlines are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee and designed for long travel enduro bikes and/or aggressive all mountain trail riders. 

Engineered to come alive as speed and aggression increases, Hotlines are laterally, vertically, and torsionally stiff featuring deep profile and robust cross-section. 

Ride quality is tuned & improved through the use of our lifetime guaranteed SPM™ straight-pull hubs and 28 Sapim D-Lite spokes per wheel, laced three-cross (while straight-pull hubs from many other hub makers count the spoke lobe as one of the cross points, SPM™ hubs are truly 3x, maximizing torsional strength) .  The greater elongation properties of the D-Lite's thinner barrel (as compared to a more traditional 2.0x1.8 double butted spoke) give the Hotline a well-damped ride quality despite it's sharp tracking and overall stiffness, while at the same time improving the wheel's impact resistance by allowing it more vertical movement in hard strike and/or bottom-out situations. 

The 30mm internal width of the Hotline is ideal for tires ranging from 2.25" to 2.6" (if you're consistently running 2.5", or wider tires, and/or Maxxis "WT" tires you may also want to consider our Mainline Wheelset). Tires 2.5" and wider will have a softer or more forgiving ride quality on the Hotline while sacrificing a slight degree of tire sidewall stiffness under hard cornering.

Less aggressive riders, or riders on shorter travel, more "trail" oriented bikes who seeking the tire stabilization of a 30mm (internal width) rim profile should check out our Livewire wheelset.

Performance by design

The Difference is in the Details

At RF, we're obsessed with the belief that the "whole" should be greater than the sum of its parts.  It's why we build our wheels in-house, by hand.  It's also what leads us to design and manufacture almost all of the components that we use to build our complete wheels.  From hubs & rims, to tubeless tape & valves, we design each and every part to work together flawlessly as well as to excel individually.

I can't believe how much I've enjoyed these Livewire wheels...I'm glad I was introduced to this small, SoCal company because these cross-country wheels have been a revelation to me! Gear of the Year

James Stout,

We have to give it to RideFast for building such top quality equipment.  If trusty and durable carbon wheels are on your wish list, check out the Hotlines.  MBA Field Test
