AForce AL33 Ceramic, Novatec
The new Al33 rim from AForce is one of the most effective rims we've ever seen. Available with a durable all black (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)
One of the best things we can say about Novatec A291/F482 hubs is that there's not a lot to say about them. They have EZO bearings and an anti-bite guard on the cassette body, and they're free spinning, light, durable, simple, low maintenance, cost effective, and black.
Spokes are black Sapim CX Ray (bladed), with black brass Wheelsmith nipples. Lacing pattern is radial for 20 and 24 hole fronts, 2x for 28h fronts and 24 and 28h rears, and 3x for 32h rears. Includes rim tape suitable for tubed or tubeless use (installed). Does not include skewers.
