Product Description

New hubs on the Black and Tan wheel set. Oversized pawls guarantee solid engagement, even when riding in mud!
637 grams front / 830 grams rear (24/28 spoke count only)

Take on anything that get's thrown at you. Use this wheelset for riding on the pavement (Black) or as a great option for cyclocross racing in the dirt and mud (Tan). With a 23mm wide alloy tubular rim (21 mm deep) you have more surface to glue. This helps prevent rolling tires and also gives you increased handling. At only 423 grams for a rim this will still allow you to have a very light wheelset. Best of all, you are not only limited to using this wheelset for cross. This would make an excellent alloy tubular wheelset for road events as well.

This wheelset is only offered in 24/28 spoke configuration for an extremely strong and durable wheelset

**IMPORTANT**    For freehub body choice on Shimano, if you are planning on getting 11 speed Shimano the next year then choose the 11 speed option. You will have to run a 1.8mm spacer behind your cassette while you still have 10 speed, but when you do make the transition to 11 speed you can just slide on the cassette with no new parts needed or any re-dishing of the wheel needed. If you are planning on running 10 speed for a while, choose the 10 speed option. You will have a rear wheel with the right flange pushed out farther to make it stiffer and with better tension balance between the drive and non-drive sides. To upgrade down the line to 11 speed you will need a conversion kit which will consists of a new axle and a new freehub body. A slight re-dish of the rear wheel will be needed when moving from Shimano 10sp to Shimano 11sp.


The brake pad option refers to the Swissstop BXP brake pads (listed separately here). You can purchase them with the wheels for a discounted rate with no added shipping.

  1. Black and Tan

    Posted by Scott, Lutz, FL on 28th Nov 2013

    I received my new Black and Tan tubular wheelset a few weeks ago and they were damaged during shipping. I emailed the company and Nicole sent me a new wheel right away. I was very impressed with their customer service! I use my new Black and Tan's for cross racing and they are awesome. They spin up nicely and are bombproof. I made podium on every race I entered since purchasing these wheels!

  2. Light AND bulletproof

    Posted by Nathan R. on 17th Aug 2013

    I raced these wheels for a full CX season and used them on road riding as well. I weight about 200 lbs and despite some root-filled rocky courses and several rides in the woods as a mountain bike, these wheels never so much as wiggled. Running low pressure tubulars I would routinely bounce them off hard objects and not a single issue. I just got my bike ready for next season - no wheel prep required!

  3. AWESOME CX wheels

    Posted by Jim B. on 22nd Oct 2012

    This is my second set of Boyd wheels, with the bombproof Vitesse being my first set. After doing one practice lap of my race with my new Black & Tans, I could tell the difference. Lighter. Stiffer. More responsive. I floated on the uphill sections, took corners with more confidence, and flew over rooty sections with ease. All in all, awesome wheels!
