We saw these gems at last year’s InterBike Show, however, it wasn’t until recent that American Classic announced the availability of it’s new 40 All-Carbon clincher wheelset.
As the name might imply, the new wheelset features 40mm deep section. And, to keep trend with the increasingly popular approach to oversized rim width, the 40’s make use of a 22mm cross section. In addition, to greatly reduce overheating during prolonged periods of braking, AC uses a Basalt braking surface to help dissipate heat. Lastly, the wheels use there brand’s own hubs – laced with 18/24 AC bladed spokes.
American Classic recommends using the yellow SwissStop brake pads or Reynolds new Cyro Blue pads.
The wheels have a claimed weight of 1,580g, with a suggested retail price of $2250.00.
