AVALON 38.50 CARBON WIELEN
The Avalon 38.50 is the perfect combination for riders that want a fast looking bike with a stable aero 50 mm deep rear wheel and a lower front rim for tight steering.
The wide Avalon rims have the possibility to mount a variety of tire sizes. Perfect for a solitary ride along country roads, but at its best when the material is taken to its limit. They are stiff and light enough to overcome the toughest uphill gradients and indispensable in the long descent that follows.
At 9th Wave, we have made asymmetric rim design our signature. Whenever we see the possibility to use asymmetric rims, we apply this technology to make stiffer and more durable wheels. So, when disc brake road bikes arrived, we instantly decided to translate our knowledge of mountain bike disc rims to road rims, resulting in an asymmetric, tubeless road disc rim design.
We took our proven inner rim profile for easy and secure tubeless tire mounting. But where hookless rims are the standard in mountain biking, we still made a small bead hook for secure mounting of the tires at higher tire pressure. And, while we were at it, we designed the rims extra wide to perfectly fit tires from 25 mm to 38 mm (wider tires will fit, smaller not). Avalon wheels are built with the new 9th Wave Mira Centerlock hubs and come standard with tubeless rim tape and lightweight aluminum valves installed.
