Product Description

New hubs on the Black and Tan wheel set. Oversized pawls guarantee solid engagement, even when riding in mud!
614 grams front / 800 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 23.3mm wide alloy tubular rim (21.7 mm deep) you have more surface to glue. This helps prevent rolling tires and also gives you increased handling. At only 407 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
The rear hub on this wheelset is compatible with both Shimano and Sram 11 speed cassettes. You will notice that there is a 1.8mm spacer on the freehub body.
If you are currently running Shimano 8, 9, or 10 speed you will need to use this 1.8mm spacer behind the cassette. With Shimano 10 speed, the cassettes come with a 1mm spacer. This means if you have a Shimano 10 speed cassette you already have the 1mm spacer. If you are running Shimano 10 speed you will need to use both the 1.8mm spacer supplied with the wheels and the 1mm spacer supplied with the cassette.
If you are currently running Sram 9 or 10 speed you will need to use this 1.8mm spacer behind the cassette. No Sram cassette requires the use of any additional spacers.
If you are running Shimano or Sram 11 speed, the cassette will simply install directly on the freehub body with no spacers required. If you upgrade from 10 speed to 11 speed, you can remove all spacers and simply slide the cassette onto the freehub. You will not have to make any adjustments to the wheel to upgrade from 10 speed to 11 speed.

  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!
