Thirty AR Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset
We're pretty big fans of Black Inc wheels here in the office. About the only criticism we can come up with is the lack of any tubeless wheels in its lineup. That all changes with its Thirty AR Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset, a mid-depth carbon offering with a wider internal and external width that pairs well with modern road and gravel tires.
The wheelset features an all-new full carbon rim with a 21mm internal and 30mm external width and a tubeless compatible profile. This plumps up the tire's volume, letting you run less air pressure amounting to better grip, more comfort, and lower rolling resistance. Its 30mm depth gives the wheelset an aero boost by dropping the drag and stiffens up the ride for more responsiveness.
The rims are laced to the hubs with Sapim spokes in a 24-hole count on the front and rear. Those hubs are fitted with CeramicSpeed bearings with top grade Silicon Nitride ceramic balls for smooth spinning and low maintenance. Tubeless rim strips and aluminum tubeless valves are included for easy setup right out of the box.
