Ukai Equalizer 48's would pre-date Peregrines, although ACS had 48's before that.

I remember Peregrine was 1st.  The equalizer came out around the same time HP48`s came out.  FYI Ukai made the rims for peregrine

Re: What was the first 48 spoke Hub & Rim?

Are Ukai Equalizers and Peregrine Super Pros the same rims? I have Super Pros and I'm interested in getting another set. Equalizers look the same to me, and I don't care about decals. If they're different, how?

edit: I saw in an older topic that they're the same, but I wouldn't mind a second source.
