AForce AL33 Ceramic, Chris King R45
The new Al33 rim from AForce is one of the most effective rims we've ever seen. Available with a durable PEO (aka ceramic) brake track coating, the Al33 mimics the look of carbon while vastly exceeding carbon's brake performance and durability, all at a light weight and with wind-tunnel-verified world class aerodynamics. The most stable feeling rim we've ever used, if you are into crits and fast road races and group rides, look no further.
19.6mm inside width
26mm max overall wide
Comes supplied with SwissStop BXP brake pads (use them)
Chris King hubs are simply the gold standard. Made in the US from the highest quality materials, machined and assembled with unmatched precision, and backed by a 5 year warranty. Available in a slew of colors (and sometimes in special edition colors), with a unique high precision, low drag, and fast engaging transmission, they're expensive but they're awesome. And they're nowhere close to as loud as people think they are. 350g/set
