Alloy Rim Brake

There is never a bad time to choose an Altamont wheelset, so here is a rundown on the similarities and differences of each rim option.

Altamont Lite features a 25mm rim profile and 50g less weight than the Altamont rim, which features a 30mm rim profile. The 30mm rim profile is slightly more aerodynamic than a 25mm rim, making it a great wheel for any occasion. The 25mm rim profile shaves a few grams, making every second count when you’re ascending a climb.

Both wheelsets are wide enough to properly seat 25-30c tire, due to the their wide 24mm external and 20mm inner rim widths. Welded and ground seams provide exceptional braking performance and extra deep anodization hardens and strengthens the rims.

We also offer Altamont and Lite rims in a ceramic coating which extends the life of the rim, provides exceptional braking performance in any condition, includes Swissstop BXP pads and looks awesome with a stealthy brake track.
