IMPORTANT - Minimum tire size 30mm. Max 70PSI.
This is not the wheelset to use with both 25mm road tires and also gravel tires. The Altamont Lite is perfect for that. The CCC is a gravel optimized wheelset, for when you want to have the best possible configuration for those larger tires.
If you're going to ride the gravel roads, we think you should know where they came from.
The CCC is a gravel-specific wheelset built to take you far off the beaten path. The new light weight, durable alloy wheelset complements Boyd’s current carbon Pinnacle 700c and Jocassee 650b offering and promises adventure at an affordable $700 price point.
The CCC, a name engrained in history as the wooded roads it represents, borrows its moniker from the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC was a voluntary public unemployment program designed to provide jobs for young men and to help families who faced challenges finding jobs during the Great Depression. In the mountains of South Carolina there are remnants of “Old CCC” roads deep in the woods that have become favorite exploration destinations for Boyd Johnson, founder of Boyd Cycling.
The 6069 series alloy rim weighs in at 415 grams in a 700c size and 395 grams in the 650b. Spoke count options are 24f/28r and 28f/32. The rim features external nipples drilled at a 4 degree angle.
“Going way off the beaten path and onto roadbeds that haven’t been active for decades is some of the most fun I’ve had on a bike,” said Johnson. “I’ve come across old moonshine distilleries and people on 4-wheelers, but never any traffic. Going that remote means the durability of the equipment is a must.”
With that in mind the CCC is a wheelset that can handle rugged off-road terrain, while still performing on pavement sections. The alloy gravel-specific rim is 25mm internal and has a 2.8mm offset. It features smaller .7mm hooks (compared to most standard 1.1mm hooks) with increased thickness on the hook walls (1.35mm) for better impact protection while running lower pressures.
Gravel seems to be all that everyone is talking about. Gravel rides and races are exploding in popularity. However, most people have a gravel bike as their second or third bike. Outfitting that bike with carbon wheels is not for everybody, and having a price-attractive, high performing alloy wheelset is a much needed product.
If your rides ends covered in mud and dirt, and a giant smile on your face, the CCC is your perfect compliment to ride into the heart of adventure.
