The Polaris 42G is the gravel-tuned edition of our race-winning Polaris 42 carbon wheels. 
Featuring fully-sealed NTN LLU bearings for additional weather resistance, and brass nipples for corrosion resistance even under the harshest of conditions, the Polaris 42G will take you across gnarly gravel and back.


Building upon the experience gained from the Polaris 69, the Polaris 42G is built upon our Omnibalance Design Philosophy, which states that in addition to aerodynamics, steering stability, traction, comfort, and responsiveness are important factors in improving a rider’s confidence.


The Polaris 42G is the product of thousands of hours of computational fluid dynamic analysis, with steering stability under adverse wind conditions as a priority. To maximize comfort and cornering performance, we chose a generous internal width of 23mm, perfect for 28mm tires. In order to maximize responsiveness, we use ultra-high-modulus carbon fibers and have optimized the carbon lay-up to reduce rim weight where appropriate, resulting in a wheelset that weighs just 1350g with our AR-01 hubs


Every Polaris wheel is painstakingly hand-built in Singapore by our partner, BuiltWheels. By hand-tuning the tension and dishing, we ensure that your wheels track straight, and that they will go the distance for you.


All Polaris wheels come with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects, and parts crash replacement for the original owner. If you are involved in a crash that makes the wheels unrideable, we will provide the replacement parts at no charge - you only have to pay for shipping and labor. This way, you’ll be riding and racing with confidence, knowing that we have your back.

Singapore orders
Pickup from our location is best - Sometimes, bikes need to be fitted to you, and wheels need to be installed properly to perform their best. We are happy to assist with that, and are best able to do so with all our tools at our disposal.​

Delivery of items is possible, and a fee will be charged if you choose this option.

International Orders
Off-the-shelf items (like wheels) will be shipped as soon as practicable. In general, we expect to ship wheels within 2-3 business days if they are in stock (ZENITH, POLARIS, Defiant carbon track wheels, Adamant Alloy wheels). Most of the required time is to get the decals prepared in your preferred color and apply them.

Custom orders like the Bolt/Intrepid mini velo and custom wheel builds will require a longer lead time of about 2 weeks to 1 month, as some parts need to be ordered and fitted. Please contact us and we will discuss the details with you.

All orders will be shipped by UPS Worldwide, except where another arrangement is required.
