With the already tried and true performance of the Altamont rim shape, the new all-over ceramic coating adds strength and durability but most importantly exceptional braking performance. Compatible with SwissStop BXP pads that wear well and have low noise and brake superbly in heavy rain. The coating will not wear off or fade.
The Altamont Lite is lighter by about 100grams and features a more shallow rim profile. Same stiffness and ride quality as the Altamont
A wide optimised rim profile and a balanced 30mm deep rim profile for all round riding performance. They fit into the wide-is-sick category with an outer width of 24mm and inner diameter of 19.86mm - which gets a boost up from last year. This means you can mount 25mm or 28mm tyres without the unsightly buggy bulge and it also makes them very compatible with CX bikes and wider tyres.
Churning out training miles? These are the wheels that you will want to ride every single day in any condition without compromising. At 1530g and very respectable aero results, these will have no trouble holding their line in a fast weekend criterium. They have a bulged profile that manages cross winds far more efficiently that typical v-section rims. The blunt trailing edge allows air to flow smoothly which keeps the bike stable in crosswinds. Just like BOYD's carbon clinchers there is a big emphasis on outright stiffness, ride quality and longevity. 2-cross on both the drive and non drive rear hub, super wide flanges and Sapim SecureLock brass nipples means this is going to be a wheelset that stays out of the workshop.
When we mention stiffness we are not talking about 18 spoke hole patterns and radially raced rear hubs. It's simple, go as wide as you can with the hub, increase bracing angles and lace them up with quality spokes and nipples from Sapim - and don't forget to 2-cross them on the rear. We guarantee you will be impressed no matter what pricepoint or brand of wheel you have come from. They come pre-tensioned from Boyd and include rim tape and Boyd skewers so they are ready to roll right out of the box.
