28mm – When the road tilts up and every gram counts.
Oh just lighten up! When the tarmac points to the sky, arm yourself with the ultimate weapon – Boyd 28mm carbons. We also know that which goes up, must come down so we made sure these svelte wheels still had the width for wider tires and strength for all out descents. When every gram counts, count on these.
The 28mm carbon clincher rim is an ultra light, but still strong rim that can be used for special occasions. Wait, that's not fun. You want to be able to use this as an everyday wheelset! It's light, it's snappy, it handles well, and yes. . .this wheelset can be used as an everyday set, not just for those special occasions. Oh just lighten up! When the road points upward, arm yourself with these ultra-light climbers. Designed with a very strong 25mm wide, rounded rim profile this wheelset is equally as comfortable battling in the cyclocross fields and in the mountains. When every gram counts, count on these!

We have been working on our new tubeless rim bed profile for years, delivering a rim that can safely run tubeless tires as well as well as normal tube and tire. To read more about the Boyd tubeless difference, click here
TEXTURED BRAKE TRACK
Braking is not that important. . . until it is! One of the things people have fear in regards to carbon is the braking performance, especially in wet conditions. Carbon braking performance has always lagged behind aluminum in terms of pure stopping power. With the new brake track on these rims, featuring a slight textured surface, braking is better than ever. Feel confident that no matter what speed, terrain, or weather condition when you need to come to a stop you will.
HIGH TEMPERATURE RESINS
The resins on the new carbon wheels can take the mountains! Countless hours of testing and resin formulas have gone into making a rim that can be ridden in any terrain. . .with any carbon specific brake pad. Don't worry anymore about if you have the right brake pads for the wheels. Wheels have been testing in a lab environment on a dyno machine, and personally in the mountains of South Carolina on hot summer days. The real world testing of the resin capabilities comes in the form of slow speed descending on Greenville's Paris Mountain. On a 35C degree day, we are going to the very top of Paris Mountain and riding just the front brake the entire way down the mountain. It ends up taking about 7.5 minutes to get to the bottom, all while dragging the front brake. It's the true test of braking way beyond what anybody would do while riding. . . .and we do it again, and again.
