Just discovered that a new rim from one of our favourite suppliers, H Plus Son, is on it’s way. The H Plus Son Archetype is 23mm wide and has a deeper and modern looking 25mm profile. They weigh 450g which is as expected and are finished in black, silver or anodised. These look like they will be popular with the road riders. H Plus Son make a very high quality rim and this looks very exciting to us. Here’s the info from the H Plus Son website:
“The perfect all around road rim. At 450 grams, this rim has proven to be light yet not sacrificing strength, stiffness, and stability. The well accepted 23mm wide profile mimics a tubular tyre, where the advantage can be felt immediately while taking corners as the tyre is no longer shaped as a light bulb, flopping over with high load. Our impeccable H Plus Son workmanship and our invisible welded rim joint comes standard with each rim.”
We expect these to be in the UK in mid May 2012 and we will be building a demo pair for test rides.
Update: you can now pre-order these from the shop.
