AMERICAN CLASSIC wheelset 29 "Wide Lightning 2016
With the Wide Lightning wheelset American Classic features a rounder who does not follow the trend towards ever wider rim, but still creates a small shovel it!
The wheels of heavy duty aluminum possess a large-volume profile that provides high rigidity. The large inner diameter of 29.3 mm also provides the tire lateral loads much more support effect. Also at low air pressures as the lateral stability of the tire is maintained. The rim base is ready for Tubelessbetrieb with milk, already mounted a rim tape. In Tubeless is instead of the tube , it uses a sealing liquid. This can small and medium sized punctures seal while driving, without significant loss of air. Outages due to breakdowns are significantly reduced! As a bonus, also the driving properties of the tire are significantly improved. By eliminating the tube , it eliminates the friction between tube and tire as well as the flexing of the tube there. The tire thus rolls easier and offers more grip, because it can adapt better to the underground!
The American Classic hubs feature stainless stainless steel bearings. The hub body are also additionally sealed. However, the highlight is because of the lightweight aluminum freewheel body. This has 3 steel inserts that prevent notching the cassette sprocket in the freewheel. This patented solution combines the durability of steel with the lightness of aluminum.
