Bombproof aerodynamic alloy rim. Perfect for fast rides on the road, gravel, and cyclocross. With the wide 20mm internal width, the Altamont is perfectly suited to road rides with 25mm+ tires and even gravel rides with up to 40mm tires. A unique tubeless locking bead shelf helps prevent burping at even the lowest tire pressures, yet can withstand the high pressures of road tires.
Use this on your road, cyclocross, or gravel bike as a great upgrade to the stock wheelset (you know, that heavy, clunky, sluggish wheel) that came on your nice bike.
Being a little more budget friendly than carbon, getting a great upgrade doesn’t have to be something you sell a kidney to achieve!
You have a nice disc brake bike, but you just can’t get that excited about the wheels on them. “If I had some better shoes, I’d go dancing all the time.”
Transform your ride with a better handling, lighter, more aero option that has no hesitation when it’s time to jump on the pedals. Keep your speed going on those hard efforts with a proper 30mm aero profile.
Multiple spoke counts ensure no matter your riding style or weight, there’s a wheel to suit your needs.
Front Wheel: • 24 spoke front (for riders 180 pounds and under) • 28 spoke front (for riders 180 pounds and above) Rear Wheel: • 28 spoke rear (for riders 180 pounds and under) • 32 spoke rear (for riders 180 pounds and above)
The Ultimate Cyclocross Rim for those on a budget!
The 32mm rim bed radius sets the Black and Tan apart from any other wheel on the market. It used to be you would need to build up layers of glue to smooth out the rim bed and get enough contact with the tire. With the Black and Tan rim profile you have a gluing surface that fits the tire perfectly, holding more secure for the ultimate cyclocross weapon!
With such a large radius on the rim bed, this rim is designed around larger tubular tires. Of course, there's a heavy focus as being an ideal cyclocross wheelset. However, for those riders who have discovered that 30mm tires on the road are super fun, the Black and Tan can also be used as a road and crit rim. 90% of the people who are looking at the Black and Tan will be looking at it for cyclocross, and that is where this rim really shines!
You want to have the advantage of a tubular with the ability to run lower pressures in cyclocross while having a secure edge to edge gluing surface. You would rather ride through that off camber muddy corner than embarrassingly fall down in front of a bunch of your friends (who will absolutely upload the video for all to see). Basically, if you are looking to have the ultimate rim for cyclocross on a budget, then you need this!
