Featuring thicker sidewalls and 1mm wider outside profile than the aluminium Wide Lightnings (33mm vs 32mm outside, 26mm vs 29.3mm inside) to ensure durability, strength and stiffness. That extra material comes at a weight penalty of just 100g, making these one of the lightest, properly wide wheelsets available today at 1676g for the 29" set.
Built with American Classic Disc 130 and 225 hubs, laced to the 32 hole rims using 14/15g DB spokes and aluminium nipples front and rear. The wheels allow for standard QR or 15mm/ 142×12 thru axle configurations, with an XD driver available to run SRAM's 11 speed.
Build quality is top-notch and doing away with the white and gold graphics certainly gives them a more premium look.
The Carbonator wheelsets are available in 27.5" or 29" and come pre-installed with American Classic's tubeless tape. Skewers and tubeless valves are included in the box.
Recommended retail price for a complete set is R18,500.
