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.
Adding the Tubeless Kit: The tubeless kit above will include our new (blue) tubeless tape and tubeless valves pre-installed on the wheels! We will install two layers of the tubeless tape in the exact width you need for your wheels. We will also include and install two of our tubeless valves in the exact length needed for your wheels. Take the guess work out of converting to tubeless and let us do it for you.
Note: you will still need a tubeless specific tire and sealant to run the wheels as a tubeless system.
STOP WITH CONFIDENCE...QUICKLY
Braking is not that important. . . until it is! The cross field looks a lot different than just a few years ago. Riders quickly realized that with the hard stopping demands needed (often times in less than ideal weather), that disc brakes offer a distinct advantage. In less than a few years, the vast majority of cross racers have made the switch to disc brakes.
It's not just in the cross field where disc brakes make an improvement. With the 28mm clinchers being such a lightweight set of wheels, people are wanting to use them in the mountains. More and more road bikes are coming with disc brakes. With these wheels, you can fly up the mountains, and use the disc brakes on the way down to confidently stop in any terrain or weather condition.
Whether you are running Quick Release (skewer) or a thru axle, we have got you covered. Have multiple bikes? Quickly swap over between the two options and use the wheel set on both bikes. You can easily swap both the front and rear hubs to use either system. The front hub can swap between standard QR (100mm OLD) and 15mm thru axle (100mm OLD). The rear can be used with either a 135mm Quick Release, a 135mm X 12mm thru axle, or a 142mm X 12mm thru axle.
SPOKES & NIPPLES
We feature Sapim CX Ray spokes and Sapim brass nipples on all carbon builds. Spokes are laced radially on the front and double crossed on both sides of the rear wheel for a stronger build and much better transfer of torque. All spokes and nipples are black.
We offer two spoke counts on all of our wheel sets. This is because not everybody has the same demands in a wheel set and to say that one wheel build will work for everybody just isn’t true. A 120 pound female triathlete is going to have much different demands in a wheel compared to a 200 pound masters crit racer who wants to use the wheels for everyday training and racing. So we offer the builds in options that will maximize both durability and performance. Going with the higher spoke count only adds about 40 grams to the weight of the wheels (less than half the weight of an empty water bottle), but will make for stronger, stiffer, and more durable wheels. If you are a larger, more powerful rider, and planning on using the wheels for years to come, you will want that added durability.
