American Classic Carbon 38 Series 3 Tubular Road Wheel Set. (FREE SHIPPING usa only)
We recommend Carbon Tubulars for the serious cyclist who demands performance for racing and special events. The wheelsets are light, stiff, aerodynamic and fast.
The 38mm wheels excel at criteriums and road races where re-accelerating, climbing and fast cornering is required. The 38mm is recommended for time trials with strong cross winds. The 58mm deep section wheelset excels at time trialing and triathlons where aerodynamics and holding high cruising speeds is desired. The 58mm wheelset is also a good choice for larger athletes and cyclocross. Carbon specific brake pads are recommended. Many extras are available to customize the ride.
"With its fast spin-up and steady-at-speed roll, the Carbon 38 is a great race-day only choice for crits or road races that involve jumps, brake and sprint corners sharp climbs or crosswinds. Buy it: if you are lean and aggressive, and want a race wheel to match." (Bicycling Magazine April 2009)
The wheels are light, stiff, aerodynamic and fast for road and triathlon.
The new lightweight high–low hub flange is engineered to
carry balanced spoke tension on all spokes for increased side to
side stiffness and strength. The 3 spoke lacing groups result in
consistent spoke tension and share the load equally for increased
wheel durability. The mid v profile of the Carbon 38 rims are an
aerodynamic advantage and handle well in time trials with strong
cross winds. New high TG resin brake surface system for improved
braking. Carbon specific brake pads are recommended.
Many extras are available for customization. Turn a good day of
racing into your personal best.
