Boyd Altamont Ceramic, Chris King R45
Boyd's Altamont alloy rims have earned a place in the top group of innovative high performance rims that make alloy rims the best choice for both value and performance. Whether racing, training, striving for a sub 5 century, knocking out the Wednesday Worlds, or whatever other riding you might want to do (and whatever surface you might want to do it on), Altamonts are wide, fast, handsome, and ready to go.
The all black "ceramic" finish is extremely durable, provides an extra strong boost of braking power, and gives a great look.

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
