For every day and every road. This disc brake specific carbon clincher rim meets & exceeds the demands of the modern do-everything road bike. -- Designed from the ground up to harmoniously function as a system with modern disc brake road bikes. The enormous 29mm external & 22mm inner hooked rim width gives 25-30mm tubeless or tubed road tires a voluminous shape that enhances ride quality, increased traction, which provides more comfort for those long days in the saddle.
It may be easier to ask, “What can’t this be used for?”. If you like to take your bike and ride everywhere, then the 36 is that all around great option. Equally at home on blustery beach front roads and in the high mountains. With the large 22mm internal width, you can even throw some gravel tires on and go play in the dirt a bit. Note that if you are looking for a pure dedicated gravel rim, the Pinnacle Hookless may be a better option
Basically, use these wheels as the set you aren’t going to ever want to take off your disc brake road bike.
You want a rim that was specifically designed around the demands of riding with disc brakes. This is not a rim brake rim that has been laced to a disc brake hub in order to be “good enough”. The shape, with, depth of the rim was all designed to work together with the disc brake hubs and the forces going into the new disc brake bikes.
Ride crosswinds, climb mountains, and then fly down the other side with a huge grin on your face. Rinse and repeat for best results!

The 55 Road Disc is a speed inspired disc brake specific rim that thrives in faster speeds and events. The big brother to the 36 Road Disc, the 55s are a great option for those who live in flat to rolling terrain and are looking for a disc brake specific wheelset. With a massive 22mm internal width, the 55mm pairs perfectly with the growing popularity of running 28mm and larger tires on the road. This helps with handling, comfort, and lowering the rolling resistance for those long days in the saddle.
A 2.5mm nipple offset helps to balance the spoke tension between drive and non-drive spokes, making for a better balanced, and stronger wheel.
Finally, a disc brake specific carbon layup helps to reduce weight while keeping the same strength. Because this is not a repurposed rim brake rim, we don’t have to build up the carbon for a brake track. The result is weight savings with no skimping on the stiffness and durability.
We took a long look at making a wheelset specific to disc brake bikes, not just making them an after-thought.
If you are spending the majority of your time in your big chain ring and above 18mph, then the aero benefit of the 55 Road Disc will be very beneficial. This includes people who ride a lot of group rides, do races or events, or even triathlons. A disc brake dedicated wheelset designed for faster speeds in a shape to improve stiffness and the balance of your wheels.
You realized the benefits of riding disc brakes already, and how you can run wider tires, have better braking, and still ride fast. You want your wheel design to match your riding style. You didn’t just zip-tie disc brakes to your rim brake fork and say you have a disc brake bike! Why would you ride a rim designed for rim brake bikes, laced to a disc brake hub, and call it good enough?
