Tech and Options

Here you will find all the info about our rims and hubs, and the spokes and nipples that can make your wheels perfect for you. If our standard wheel builds are not exactly what you want, these are options that will make everything perfect.

Aluminum Rims

We worked long and hard to find a set of aluminum rims that we were proud to call AirGo. We demanded the cleanest welds, the the smoothest braking, and the lightest weights – all with the durability to run for thousands of miles in any condition. What we have come up with is three options that make for the perfect training wheel for those long winter hours in the saddle, or a set of aero race wheels for those who don’t need or want carbon rims. By using Niobium-Aluminum, we have been able to provide three wheel depths that all stand up to our strength requirements, while remaining some of the lightest rims in the world in their respective depths. See the details below for each specific rim, and make your next set of hand-built wheels an AR set from AirGo.

AR.27 – Extruded from a superlight Niobium-Aluminum alloy and joined with a high quality pinned joint. Finish work on these rims include glossy anodization and machined sidewalls. These rims are strong and light, and are perfect for the every-day rigors of long miles, rough roads, and  heavier rider weights. 445 grams. 27mm profile. 19mm width. 20, 24, and 28 hole drillings available in white, silver, and black.

AR.30 – Extruded from a super light Niobium-Aluminum alloy and joined with a high quality pinned joint. Finish work includes a high gloss anodization and machined sidewalls. These rims feature a 30mm aerodynamic cross section and a weight most competitors can’t match at half the depth. An added bonus of the deep cross section is strength, making the XR-300 well suited for stronger, heavier riders, or applications where total wheel stiffness is an important consideration. 455 grams. 30mm profile. 19mm profile. 20, 24, 28 hole drillings available in white, silver, and black.

AR.38 – Extruded from a super light Niobium-Aluminum alloy and joined with a high quality pinned joint. Finish work includes a high gloss anodization and machined sidewalls. This rim is the deepest aluminum rim we offer, and is one of the deepest aluminum rims available anywhere. These are a great rim for TT or Tri riders looking to get high-level, budget-oriented performance. 550 grams. 38mm profile. 20 mm width. 20, 24, 28 hole drillings available in black.

Carbon Rims

All of our carbon rims are designed with durability, performance, and comfort in mind. The breaking surfaces are developed to keep heat build-up to a minimum, and to dissipate any heat that does develop quickly and efficiently. This offers the best breaking performance possible so that you can focus on the perfect line, and not on what your wheels are doing. Furthermore, the 46mm and 66mm rims include a profile that helps minimize buffeting from cross winds, again helpful in maintaining the confidence in your chosen line, even in harsh conditions. We offer three rim depths in both clincher and tubular options, so that your wheels will be exactly what you need for every ride situation.

AirGo CR.32.T – Out featherweight carbon tubular climbing rim. This beautiful tubular rim makes for the lightest wheel set  that we offer, with the strength to stand up to the hardest racing corners. And with our smooth breaking surface, the descents on the backside of your favorite mountain will be as easy as the climb up the front. The CR.32.t is the only choice for your next KOM challenge. 260 grams. 32mm profile. 21.5mm width. 20 and 24 hole drillings available in nude matte finish carbon with your choice of labels colors.

AirGo CR.32.C – The clincher version of our CR.32.T, these wheels give you the light weight and strength of the tubular tire, but with the ease of a clincher. 434 grams. 32mm profile. 21.5mm width. 20 and 24 hole drillings available in nude matte carbon with your choice of label colors.

AirGo CR.46.T – This carbon tubular rim is the perfect blend of light weight, aerodynamics, stiffness, and comfort. These are the ultimate do-it-all race wheel that can handle any terrain and wind condition. 334 grams. 46mm profile. 21.5 mm width. 20 and 24 hole drillings available in nude matte carbon with your choice of label colors.

AirGo CR.46.C – Carbon Clincher version of the CR.46.T. These rims offer the same amazing performance as the tubular version, but with the ease of a clincher. These can be amazing race wheels, but also give you the strength and security for an everyday wheel. 462 grams. 46mm profile. 21.5 mm width. 20 and 24 hole drillings available in nude matte carbon with your choice of label colors.

AirGo CR.66.T – These carbon tubular deep dish rims are part of the ultimate flat race, TT, or tri wheelset. With the weight benefits of a tubular rim, wheels built with the CR.66.T rims can give you wind-cheating depth with a weight that is lighter than many aluminum rims on the market. 478 grams. 66mm profile. 21.5mm width. 20 and 24 hole drillings available in nude matte carbon with your choice of label colors.

AirGo CR.66.C – The carbon clincher version of the CR.66.C for the ultimate deep-dish performance with the ease of a clincher. These rims are the best of all worlds: light weight, super aero, stiff, comfortable, and easy to use. 562 grams. 66mm profile. 21.5mm width. 20 and 24 hole drillings available in nude matte carbon with your choice of label colors.
