The Aerodynamic Avalon 50 disc brake rims are dedicated to speed. (And besides that, they look awesome too…)
At 9th Wave we have made asymmetric rim design our signature. Whenever we see the possibility to use asymmetric rims we apply this technology to make stiffer and more durable wheels. So, when disc brake road bikes arrived, we instantly decided to translate our knowledge of mountainbike disc rims to road rims, resulting in an asymmetric, tubeless road disc rim design.
The Avalon 50 is the ideal rim for fast riders. The stiff 50 mm deep rims are stiff and the U shape deflects side winds so you stay on track. The wide Avalon 50 rims have the possibility to mount a variety of tire sizes. Perfect for a solitary ride along country roads, and at its best when taken to it’s limit. In rapid (or easy) rides in groups these wheels give you extra the margin.
We took our proven inner rim profile for easy and secure tubeless tire mounting. But where hookless rims are the standard in mountainbiking, we still made a small bead hook for secure mounting of the tires at higher tire pressure. And, while we were at it, we designed the rims extra wide to perfectly fit tires from 25 mm to 40 mm (wider tires will fit, smaller not). The result is a unique 50 mm deep rim with the proven advantages of asymmetric mountainbike rims merged with the specific demands for road racing.
