Our WideBoy range has undergone a complete revamp from last year. These wheelsets are the ultimate in our current development, giving a 26.5 wide carbon rim UD carbon rim which offers excellent handing capabilities at wide yaw angles. Utilising the feed back from our independent testers that the tubeless clincher rim offers an advantage over standard tubed clinchers.
The Wideboy rim has a braking surface which is bonded into the surface of the carbon and is heat resistant to 200 degrees Celsius
Walker Brothers WideBoy range wheel sets have an with of 27mm braking surface width which widens out to a maximum of almost 30mm. They have an angled 4 degree braking surface and when fitted with 25mm tyres gives an excellent aero profile of tyre and rim combined. WideBoy wheelsets are targeted more for road bikes as there may be clearance issues with some TT frames. If purchased for TT frames the clearance should be checked before purchase.
As with all our 2022 range, the wheels feature our permanent lacquered decal design. Paper thin decals are applied to the rim which then endures a process of several thin coats of lacquer to protect the wheel and save watts!
