New Age Gravel
The jury is in: Gravel riding and racing is here to stay, with increasingly popular events blanketing the globe – along with purpose-built bikes to match. We?ve long-since dispelled the naysayers, usually by taking them on our favorite off-piste routes out our back door into the Blue Ridge Mountains. Following up on our groundbreaking Jocassee 650b hookless gravel wheel, we present the all-new competition-ready Pinnacle. Designed around a 700c tire setup, the Pinnacle follows down the trail the Jocassee blazed, but with a more-traditional wheel diameter and the litany of aerodynamically-friendly tire choices it affords.
Designed around a tubeless, hookless rim profile, the Pinnacle uses a wide rim inner diameter (23.4mm) for a perfect traction-embracing lightbulbed tire profile, ideally for gravel and cyclocross tires between 32-40mm in width, as well as higher volume 28mm tubeless road tires. Like the Jocassee, it uses a 36mm rim depth, giving the wheel far more aerodynamic aptitude than a comparable mountain bike hoop at the higher speeds typical of a gravel race. Because the Pinnacle is a disc-specific wheel, we've been able to shed a few grams at the rim itself, reducing rotating mass without compromising safety, and the wheel?s unique 2.8mm offset amplifies spoke balance under heavy load.
The end result of our gravel-driven tweaks and refinements? The perfect no-compromise wheel for the tubeless cyclocross, gravel, and high volume tubeless road tires!
