Riders are obsessed with tubeless technology and we’ve unleashed the world’s fastest, most advanced deep tubeless road wheels for racing and training. Driven by vision and created by hard work, Bill Shook designed this breakthrough Argent tubeless wheel system emphasizing durability and stiffness in a concept Bill calls, “multi-plying lightness.” The wide aerodynamic rim is 22mm wide x 30mm deep and only 390 grams. Bead barb technology hooks on the tire bead to secure the tires in place without burping. Ride smaller, lighter tires because they spread out across the wide rim. Low spoke count Series 3 lacing for torsional stability and stiffness. Hand built Argent’s are championed for their quick accelerations, solid cornering, fast climbing and descending. When seconds count in the relentless pursuit to win, Argent wheels deliver the ultimate technological advantage.
You may ask how our tubeless system works. Bill Shook designed the rim with a bead barb running along the edge of the bead shelf. When installed, the tire firmly pops into position over the bead barb. The tire bead centers and tightly grips the circumference of the rim creating a sealed environment to hold the liquid sealant without burping.The number one reason to run tubeless wheels is to avoid flat tires. In the event of a puncture, the sealant quickly fills and closes small holes in the tire preventing flats caused by glass, metal and other debris. Pinch flats can not occur as the tube is not part of the system.Our tubeless system is about speed. It lowers wheel weight at the extreme outer edge of the rim resulting in lower rolling resistance and better performance. In a traditional clincher set up, the tire and tube interface moves as the wheel rolls, creating friction and energy loss. With the AC tubeless set up, there is no frictional energy loss between the tire and tube because the tube is gone. Liquid sealant is lighter than a tube. You can ride lighter weight tires with our tubeless system because you don’t have to use tires made with heavy, inflexible puncture layers. Overall, our tubeless system is lighter and the wheel will spin up faster with less rider energy output. And the best part is flat tires are past history.
