American Classic Argent Road Tubeless Wheel Set
Riders are obsessed with tubeless technology, and American Classic unleashed the world’s fastest, most advanced deep tubeless road wheels for racing and training. Driven by vision and created by hard work, Bill Shook designed this breakthrough Argent tubeless wheel system emphasizing durability and stiffness in a concept Bill calls, “multi-plying lightness.”
The wide aerodynamic rim is 22mm wide x 30mm deep and only 390g. Bead barb technology hooks on the tire bead to secure the tires in place without burping. Ride smaller, lighter tires because they spread out across the wide rim. Low spoke count Series 3 lacing for torsional stability and stiffness. Hand built Argent’s are championed for their quick accelerations, solid cornering, fast climbing and descending. When seconds count in the relentless pursuit to win, Argent wheels deliver the ultimate technological advantage.
