A-Class, which is the upscale complete wheel side of Alex Rims’ business, had something new for road, cyclocross and mountain bikes, each aimed at satisfying the latest trends.
The Graph50 is a 24mm wide (17.6mm inside) and 50mm deep full carbon clincher laced to disc brake hubs. Weight is 1460g for the set, available with standard quick release axles only.
The new CXD4 disc brake cyclocross wheelset gets a sleeved, offset rim to even out spoke tension. Stainless steel spoke eyelets on the rim keep it strong and allow the nipples to seat easily and without binding. The front wheel comes with end caps for either 9mm QR or 15mm thru axle. Rear is QR only. It’s tubeless ready, with a shelf built into the bed’s profile to support tubeless tires properly. Rims are 24mm wide (19mm internal), 23mm deep and the set comes in at a claimed 1536g, almost 200g lighter than the original CXD5. The weight savings comes mainly from the rim – the CXD5 uses a pinned rim without the Equalizer asymmetric profile.
