Boyd Cycling Rolls Out Carbon Tubular Disc Wheel for Track & Triathlon
Boyd Cycling started on this project in 2011 with the intention of making it a 2013 product that’s both road and track compatible.
The disc is a full carbon tubular design that’s perfectly flat with two unique features that set it apart – Stiffness and track bike compatibility. Two different types of foam are inside the walls – a high density, high strength foam is at the center, with a lighter weight foam on the outer edges to reduce rotating mass. The result is a full disc that’s strong and stiff enough to use on the track.
It comes setup with a normal 9/10/11 speed freehub body and axle and a 120mm track axle in the box. Just use two 5mm allen wrenches to remove the end caps, then slide the freehub body and road axle out, replacing it with the track axle, flip the wheel around and tighten it up. Founder Boyd Johnson says it takes all of 70 seconds.
Claimed weight is 1,200 to 1,220 grams. Available now, price is $1,200. There’s also a ghosted decal option to match his other wheels. Click through for pics…
The wheel includes a 16t track cog, valve hole covers, skewer and wheel bag.
