Bomb proof alloy wheelset for every day and every road. Ceramic coating provides disc brake stopping feel, carbon rim appearance, and extends the life of the rim.
The best alloy wheelset, now with a stealthy coating on the brake track. Want to climb better and have great braking on the descents? Look no further than this page! We have taken our very popular alloy offerings and added a stealthy, cool coating to the rim and brake track. This coating not only looks cool, it improves braking conditions, especially in wet conditions. This super durable coating, combined with the included Swissstop BXP brake pads, gives you disc brake stopping feel, carbon rim appearance, and the coating helps to extend the life of the wheelset.
Note, over time it may be possible to wear the coating, especially if you are riding with grit in your brake pads or are using brake pads on regular silver machined alloy wheels that can leave aluminum shavings in your brake pads.

Use this awesome stealthy alloy wheel in all conditions. As much as we are hearing about disc brakes taking over, there are a LOT of people who still prefer the ride of an alloy rim brake wheel. We realize that the world still needs good rim brake options, and adding to the braking performance (while looking good) is very important!
This is the best option if you would rather upgrade your wheel versus your fleet of bikes!
Your bike needs a one and done wheel upgrade. You are on the fence about what you are buying, due to the uses. Your bike is your daily driver, your work all, you use it for everything. The strength of this wheel is what you really are getting with this upgrade. Go out and spend more time on every country, city, and mountain road you can find with the peace of mind the Altamont comes with!
