Altamont Lite - Shave Weight, Not Strength!
Welded and ground seams provide exceptional braking performance. Extra deep anodization hardens and strengthens the rim. The result is a rim perfect for training, hilly terrain, or gravel and CX riding.
Use the Altamont Lite for rides where the speeds are not as high and weight savings becomes more important that every gram of aero drag. This means your hilly rides, cyclocross events, gravel rides. . . or just lighten up your bike in general.
Being an alloy wheelset, this is priced much more budget friendly than a comparable carbon set, so this can make a great upgrade to an stock wheelset that you just can't get very excited about.
You want to ride in hilly terrain or go out for some great gravel rides. Use as a tubeless ready cyclocross rim with a rim bed designed to lock in tubeless tires at lower pressures.
If you have a nice newer disc brake bike, yet it feels sluggish and boring whenever you hop on, this set is just the energization you need!
