Climbing Rims – Light and Nimble
A good set of climbing wheels will give you wings and provide comfort when the tank is empty and the road is relentless, rough and steep.
Carbon rims suitable for climbing tip the scales in the 280g - 425g range. Most rims in this category feature lower profile depths (below 45mm) with minimal weight, precise control, and ride quality trumping aerodynamics. Due to their lower profile, they handle exceptionally well in windy conditions.
