The Bicycle Wheel Warehouse Aero 30mm tall wheel set uses one of our strongest, most versatile race oriented aluminum clincher 700c rims. The Pure Aero rim is very attractive, and offers a strong tapered aero shaped 30mm x 19mm profile (HxW). Given the Aero rim's strength, wheel "stiffness" is not a concern. We use this rim in lower spoke count, focused road race wheel sets. And then again here with this wheel set, with 32 holes up front and 36 holes for the rear, offering an extremely strong/durable road wheel set option, still only weighing in at a 1980g.
One of the highlights of the Pure Aero "HD" wheel set is its employment of a relatively high spoke count. In the segment of race oriented bicycle rims, 36 holes is basically non-existent. We're building these rims with silver gray anodized Shimano Tiagra 4600 series loose ball, (cup + cone), road hubs. The front is 32 hole, rear is 36 hole, laced with a three cross lace pattern, using Sapim Leader silver stainless spokes with brass nipples.
We've been using the BWW Aero rim since nearly the beginning. Only the Blackset Race 24 rim preceeded it. The Aero rim has played a large part in our success, and remains to this day one of the few marketplace upgrade options beyond the Velocity Deep V rim.
