Our new aluminum tubular rims were specially designed by Bill Shook for the Cofidis Pro Cycling Team to race the cobblestones at Paris-Roubaix. now this revolutionary wheelset is available to you. Since the dawn of cycling, aluminum tubulars have been a racing standard. Using mathematics and engineering, Bill brought the aluminum tubular into the modern race world with a strong, shallow box rim profile that is super wide at 23.5mm. These fast wheels track aggressively and solid, especially in the corners. The high spoke count and high hub flanges make the wheels burly, vertically compliant and forgiving. The rims can accommodate larger diameter tubular tires up to 32mm wide for cyclocross. Wider tires on wide rims increase the tire patch to float over rough terrain found in cyclocross races. Available in a rim brake or disc brake format. Back to basics simplicity with forward thinking engineering, AC aluminum tubulars are the new classic for racing and training.
WIDE RIMS IMPROVE CYCLING PERFORMANCE
Everybody is talking about wider rims for both road and mountain bike. What does it really mean for you, the rider? There are a few wide rim profiles on the market but they are either heavy, or too light and flexy. Bill Shook used his mathematical abilities to design our revolutionary wide rims, attaining the goal of being light, stiff, strong, aerodynamic and wide, all in one rim. To start, wide rims mean riding lighter, smaller performance tires with cushiony, high air volume and firm surface grip. Larger width tires offer more air volume but they are heavy with a sluggish ride quality. The desired combined wheel and tire qualities are achieved by stretching out the smaller tire casing on a wide rim and effectively making the tire bigger. Also, smaller tires on wide rims reduce tire roll on the rims. With a narrow rim and a wide tire, the rim floats from side to side on the tire. Using a wider rim with a smaller tire minimizes float for improved handling, confidence and control. The rim is lower weight at the extreme outer edge of the wheel decreasing rolling resistance and boosting speed. Our wider, lighter rims translate into crisp accelerations, firm ground control, faster rolling on the flats and decisive handling for the extra edge needed by competitive athletes.
