No. 22 / Boyd | Road Rim Brake Wheelset

Size Guide

No. 22 and Boyd have partnered to offer handbuilt, cutting edge wheelsets that match the features, look, and build quality expected of No. 22.

Rims

The 44mm road rim brake clincher is designed to be the definitive all purpose carbon wheelset. No matter what type of riding you are doing, the 44mm depth with improved aerodynamic profile will be a great option for you. The depth balances the needs of climbing, descending, windy conditions, races, and even training. With the mid-depth aero rim height and improved design to handle crosswinds these can be used even in very windy areas. With the low weight of the wheels they are a great climbing wheel set and on the opposite side of that climb the wider rim profile will make for great handling when flying down a descent.

  • Rim depth: 44mm
  • Rim width: 27mm
  • Inner width: 19mm

Hubs

These wheels feature Boyd's highest level 85-series road hubs.  Hubs can be one of the best ways to increase the stiffness of a set of wheels. If you think of a wheel as a triangle instead of a circle, the spokes have a base at the hub and come to a point at the rim. By increasing the base of this triangle you are making for a sturdier object, which translates directly to a stiffer wheel. Boyd's hubs have some of the widest flange spacing on the market, which combined with the strength of the rims, help to make for an incredibly well responding and stiff wheelset.

Hub stability is something that is often overlooked, but is felt immediately when standing (such as when sprinting or climbing). To accomplish higher stability the bearings were also moved out as far as possible on the axle. Many hubs have a long end cap on the non-drive side with the bearing quite far from the edge of the hub. By supporting the non-drive side bearing and moving it out to the edge of the axle, the wheel stability is greatly increased.

Spokes

No. 22 / Boyd rims are handbuilt with Pillar Aerowing spokes that come in at the same weight as the Sapim CX Ray, but have better stiffness, fatigue rating, and aerodymanics.

These wheels are offered in two spoke count options: 20/24 for smaller riders, and 24/28 for heavier riders.

Tubeless Ready

Wheels ship with tubeless tape and valves pre-installed for easy initial tubless setup.
