Deepish carbon clincher in 23mm wide ??????

Postby MichaelB » Mon Mar 12, 2012 10:16 am

Hi all,

As the owner of a disc equipped bike, and having run A23 rims before, is there any such beast as a deepish carbon clincher (with or without brake tracks) rim that is also wide ?

Looking at 35 - 50mm deep.

Needs to be available as a rim only.

Anyone know of such an item ?

Keen to try something different for my next wheel build :twisted:

Aren't Zipp 303 or 404 rims quite wide? Certainly the most expensive option :P

Was thinking more affordable (read Chinese suppliers) than Zipps.

Waaaaaay more affordable.

from here

Apparently some of these mobs will drill the rims to your specifications. There is a bloke here in Bendigo who has some 60mm carbon cinchers he got custom built by a local wheel builder. The rear is a 32 hole with external nipples laced to a power tap hub. I don't know him well having only been here a short time but he has had them since novemeber he was saying on saturday and races and trains on them. He looked to be a 100ish kg to me.

Oops just reread your post :oops: . Dont know that any of them are that wide.

Thanks for the info Parrott

Will have a browse.

I'm thinking that what I am ideally after is not available, but will have a sticky beak to see what is around

The China carbon rims are mostly about 19mm along with the likes of gigantex, wish I previously knew they could redrill to your request tho. 38mm redrilled to 32h with some disc hubs would be sweet on the commuter :)

38mm deep carbon Clincher from the Helin Lu link provided by Parrott are listed as 760g (+/- 30g) per pair !! Betrter than I thought and not far off the Stans Alpha 340's that I was thinking of using.

the 50mm ones are 880g (+/- 30g) from Helin.

Farsports seem to be wheelsets only EDIT : Doh !! Just found the clincher rim listing ..... , and Yishun have virtually no details by each product.

Investigations will continue ....

Any other experiences/links greatly welcomed :D

Probably a bit wide. Deeper would be nicer, but it seems like they are in the works - see below ....



From the thread on RBR, here is some interesting news posted last week

Originally Posted by mattsavage

The clinchers are 45mm x 23.5mm and 45mm x 25mm. They also have an 88mm x25mm clincher. They are all UD finish. Time to swoop!

The thing about Bevato though, is they're a wholesaler. I don't think they do individual orders. Might be good for a group buy though.


Could be promising ....

From the previously mentioned RBR forum

Great. Thanks for the feedback.

Any idea of when the 50mm deep wide clincher will be available ?


It seems that at this stage, only 50mm deep wide (tubular and clincher) will be available from Yishun. See profile below.

50mm is a bit deep for me, but will see what happens in the next month or so. 38mm is plenty for me, wide or not.
