AForce AL33 Ceramic, Industry Nine Torch Classic Road
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.
