Alex Rims, the company behind A-Class Wheels, sources the raw materials to make their own alloys, which are then used on their wheels. They showed off new models for road/triathlon, mountain bikes and folding commuters at PressCamp last week.
Their new ALX850 carbon fiber tubular road wheel (front, above) has a 50mm depth, uses their own mold and is made in one of their factories. It uses sealed cartridge bearing Japanese hubs with DT Swiss spokes. MSRP $1800, weight for the pair is a claimed 1370g.
The ALX820 (middle) has a 40mm deep carbon rim with scandium brake track and rim bed bonded to it. Its not just a carbon aero shell bonded to an alloy rim like most similar wheels, it’s a full carbon rim with the alloy brake track added on top. MSRP is $1700 with a claimed weight of 1780g and can be used for cyclocross.
Speaking of cyclocross, they have some new disc brake cyclocross wheels coming out in two models with 130 rear hub spacing.
ALX 730 is one of their top end alloy clincher wheels. It uses their proprietary EXA alloy and comes in at 1540g for the set. MSRP $800 with DT Swiss aero spokes, available in white or black, and it’s tubeless compatible.
