Rim brakes are not dead yet... 

Our 700C AC20-440 multi-purpose aluminium tubeless wheeler is now also available for rim brake bikes as a custom build

This super reliable rim builds into a lovely tubeless or clincher wheelset and is as light as we are happy with for a rim brake rim. As tubeless aluminium rim brake rims get lighter than this, they have less metal/material, usually thinner brake tracks, which limits the wear life of the wheelset

It's strength to weight ratio is superb for a 440g rim

A 20mm internal width matches nicely with cyclo cross tyres, but also gravel and road tyres too, making this a truly multi-purpose wheelset

For road we would recommend a 25mm minimum tyre width. A 25mm Continental GP5000 measures 26mm on this rim. (We can supply with GP5000 set up tubeless - contact us for more information)
