Tipping the scales at an insane light 1,108 grams with valves and rim tape, these are the lightest gravel specific wheels I have ridden and reviewed. Priced at $2,195, they beat their pants off of premium wheelset offerings in terms of price and weight, which says a lot about the R&D that Berd has put into this wheelset. These Berd sparrows have set the benchmark. - Gravel Cyclist
The Berd Sparrow Carbon Gravel Wheels are the lightest 25 mm internal production gravel wheelset on the market today! Even though Sparrow wheels weigh only 1,065 grams for the complete wheelset (1,108 grams with tape and valves) they are still tough enough to handle anything your off-pavement adventures can throw at them.
Not only are Sparrow wheels lightweight, but they also provide an extremely smooth ride with the damping qualities of Berd spokes soaking up those chunky gravel sections and reducing the high-frequency vibrations that travel from the road to the rider.
The Sparrow Wheels are equipped to handle 28c road tires all the way up to 50c mud slingers so no matter where you are going and how you are riding, you can mount up whatever rubber is needed for the adventure!
At the center of the Sparrow wheels are the all-new Berd Talon Gravel/Road hubs. Berd TALON hubs feature a clean spoke interface designed to work exclusively with Berd spokes. The TALON hubs also include removable end caps for easy serviceability, centerlock brake mounts, and a durable black anodized finish. The dual-sprung 36 tooth ratchet mechanism is designed to be easy to service and offers excellent reliability! Most importantly, the Talon Gravel/Road hubs are available with Shimano Microspline freehubs for 12-speed GRX cassettes in addition to Sram XDR and the traditional Shimano 11SP road freehub body.
Sparrow wheels are also available to be built using Onyx Hook Flange hubs, or as part of a custom build using the hubs of your choice (subject to availability).
Strong, light, and smooth - Berd Sparrow wheels are the complete package. Come fly with us today!
