THE PERFECT BALANCE BETWEEN AERO ADVANTAGE AND LIGHT WEIGHT

The Avalon 38 is our ultimate disc brake specific, aerodynamic, and lightweight carbon road race wheelset. It is designed to be the perfect mix between a lightweight climbing wheel with aero advantage.
It is the ideal wheel set to comfortably and safely shred kilometers. The wide Avalon 38 rims have the possibility to mount a variety of tire sizes. Perfect for a solitary ride along country roads, but at its best when the material is taken to it’s limit. They are stiff and light enough to overcome the toughest uphill gradients and indispensable in the long descent that follows.
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 mountainbike 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 mountainbiking, 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 38 mm deep rim with the proven advantages of asymmetric mountainbike rims merged with the specific demands for road racing.
All 9th Wave tubeless wheels come standard with rim tape and lightweight aluminium 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!
