SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT CLIMBING WHEELS FOR DISC BRAKES
Estimated delivery time: Made to order | usually ships in 2 - 3 days
The Avalon 25 carbon is the perfect disc brake climbing wheelset: asymmetric, light, strong and stiff. It is the ultimate wheelset for climbing and safe descending at an incredibly low weight of only 345 g. per rim.
At 9th Wave, we have made asymmetric rim design our signature. Whenever we see the possibility to use asymmetric rims, we apply this technology to make stiffer and more durable wheels. So, when disc brake road bikes arrived, we instantly decided to translate our knowledge of mountain bike disc rims to road rims, resulting in an asymmetric, tubeless road disc rim design.
We took our proven inner rim profile for easy and secure tubeless tire mounting. But where hookless rims are the standard in mountain biking, we still made a small bead hook for secure mounting of the tires at higher tire pressure. And, while we were at it, we designed the rims extra wide to perfectly fit tires from 25 mm to 38 mm (wider tires will fit, smaller not). The result is a unique 25 mm deep rim with the proven advantages of asymmetric mountain bike rims merged with the specific demands for road racing.
All 9th Wave tubeless wheels come standard with rim tape and lightweight aluminum valves installed. And, if you order disc brake rotors with your wheels, we will already mount these for you. All, so you can get out there and ride your new wheels as soon as possible!
