Interbike 2010: American Classic’s sub-1550g All Mountain wheelset

People have asked me a number of times what the most exciting thing we saw at Interbike this year.  After a few days’ reflection, American Classic’s forthcoming All Mountain wheelset has to be on the short list.  Though complete wheels weren’t available at the show, the finalized 390g tubeless-ready (with rim tape) rim was on hand.  The rims are a generous 28mm wide (about 25mm inside width).  Built up using American Classic’s excellent rear hub and 15QR/9mm compatible front hub, the set should come in at 1,546g (1,680g for the 29er version), making it promising not only for aggressive trail riders but heavier cross country racers too.  The best part?  A retail price of $850.  We should have a set on test as soon as they’re available.
