44mm - Perfect balance between weight and aero.
Light. To be ultra-responsive and capable climbers. Strong. To tame dirt roads and Belgian cobbles. Aero. To master 40 MPH sprints. Stable to hold line in 30 knot winds. 44s are the go to wheel set when you only want to have one set of wheels for all training and racing conditions.
The 44mm clincher is the all-purpose carbon wheelset. No matter what type of riding you are doing, the 44mm depth with an improved aerodynamic profile will be a great option for you. It's a great wheelset for climbing, descending, windy conditions, races, and even training. With the mid-depth aero rim height and improved design to handle the crosswinds, these can be used even in very windy areas. With the low weight of the wheels, they are a great climbing wheel set and on the opposite side of that climb the wider rim profile will make for great handling when flying down a descent.
Rim depth - 44mm
Rim width - 27mm
Inner width - 19mm
Rim weight - 465 grams
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.
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.
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.
