Premium Inner Laced wheels

So before Premium released there Samsara wheels,they had the old "Lite" V1 wheels. This wheels were inner laced,meaning the spokes were laced facing the body of the hub,leaving the flanges flat on the outside. After noticing how all the team still rides them,and thinking that,"Hey,I don't really need a hubguard if I get these" I contacted Premium,recommending making them again. Turns out,they're in the works! I don't know when they will be available but you get a sick wheel without needing to buy hubguards all the time.

If they are all internally laced then doesn't that just mean it will fuck up your hub flange instead of your spokes when you grind? fucking up your hub which is more expensive than spokes

Somewhat. The lacing is just another way of protection I guess. You still can of course.
I should note that Chad Kerley rides without hubguards and he's had no problems (Don't believe me check his RIDE bike check)

I implied that I was agreeing with him through my comment.
And not really. They stopped making the old V1 wheels. Unless there was more in stock leftovers,he couldn't. His looks beaten up so it looks like he had his for a while.

I used to run my Demolition Phantom hub laced like that. Lets just say it wasnt the best thing to do in the long run. The spokes being crossed like that stresses the flange more and if youre a a hard rider youd snap the flange off or damage it. The Premium wheel is drilled differently for this lace pattern so ill never do that again haha and instead of bending spokes i was ripping up my hub shell. Ill stick with my GLAND guard!

Just because Chad and Connor do this doesnt mean it will be "just as good" as a hub protected by guards. You have to take into mind that those guys can get new wheels whenever they want. so they man just want no guards cuz it looks cleaner. and when the hub shell gets F**ed then they just get a new wheel.

I'd still ride guards,it's just a slight advantage if you don't.
I explained the new wheels already. Read it first before you mention it again.

Does anyone know what hub guards i could put on the samsara wheels?

If you really want a decent inner laced hub, get an OG Tree hub. Too young to remember or don't know enough about BMX? Google it! Those Hubs were fucking bombproof! Its a clever idea, quick fix if you can't afford hub guards. Also as mentioned the Premium hubs & the Tree i mentioned had slightly different Drilled & Angled Flanges doing it with just your average hub will put un-even pressure on the flanges & eventually they will snap off & some companies can even refuse to warranty the hub because of "Improper Installation" Go Careful with this set up peepages not only could you seriously fuck up your hub, you might not get it replaced AND on top of that Fuck yourself up!
