The A 60 rim definitely isn't cheap but your getting what you pay for in durability.
Excel's new A60 rims are structurally 15% stronger than current Excel Takasago Signature Series Rims, yet A60 rims remain the same weight. A60's new V-curve profile helps reduce mud buildup, keeping your bike lighter than your competition. A60 is available in black and is characterized by a metallic silver pinstripe along the edge of the rim giving A60 a distinct "works" look. A60 rims can be laced to stock, Excel Pro Series or Talon Ultra Lite-II hubs. A60 is developed for the professional racer looking for increased wheel strength and durability.
Note: Rim only, spokes sold separately.
