Altamont Lite Ceramic Coated Rear Wheel

Shave weight, not performance. Ceramic coating provides disc brake stopping feel, carbon rim appearance, and extends the life of the rim.
Super light 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!

The Altamont Lite, with the 90 gram weight savings over the Altamont is great for those who live in hillier areas or are looking for weight shavings versus a slightly better aero benefit.

What goes up must come down. Dance up the hills with an impressively light, yet super durable alloy wheel. On the flip side, descend with the confidence that a wider rim profile and exceptional brake performance can offer. Dive into those corners knowing that you are in full control, taming the road beneath you.

The Altamont Lite Ceramic Coated wheel excels both up and down for those riders who like to give gravity a run for its money.
