Hand-built in the USA. We’ll build you a Forza-C wheelset complete and ready to ride. Enjoy an ≈1470 gram wheelset built with 24h drilling front and rear, Pacenti hubs front and rear, Sapim CX-Ray spokes in front, Sapim D-Light spokes in back, and laced two-cross to optimize strength and low weight. Hubs are configured as 12mm front and 12mm x 142 rear. QR and 135 x 10mm rear are available through end caps purchased separately.
“You can feel the handbuild quality running straight through, giving such a nice feedback from the road.” – Zoe Backstedt
Our Forza-C rims are the heart of this wheelset, and they are optimized specifically around tubeless tires. The inner width of 21 mm provides for more air volume (comfort) and improves tire profile (control). The asymmetric profile provides for good spoke tension when lacing to offset hub flanges. These rims are the result of a clean sheet design that brings our best thinking to the table on what a rim should be.
Do you need a dynamo hub? We offer the same wheelset with a dynamo front hub. Click here for details.
NOTE: The Forza-C rim is designed for with tubeless specific tires only
700 x 25 max pressure 100psi (6.9bar)
700 x 28 max pressure 90psi (6.2bar)
700 x 30 max pressure 85psi (5.9bar)
We recommend you allow a sliding scale for tire pressures. As a general rule, the wider the tire is (more air volume) the less air pressure you’ll need to achieve a fast but compliant ride. Experiment with tire size and air pressures to work out the best combination of volume and pressure for your intended terrain and overall riding style. Air pressure recommendations from the tire manufacturers are a good starting point but should not exceed 105psi for this rim.
The Forza-C features a hookless, tubeless ready rim bed. As such, tires will require a firm grip to install but will go on by hand with the proper technique. Once installed, the bead should be snug on the rim. If you feel the tire is ‘too loose ‘do not use it and find another type or brand to obtain the proper interface between tire and rim for a safe fit and reliable seal.
