A quality carbon wheelset at a decent price that’s aerodynamic, spins up easily, is strong enough to withstand daily use across any terrain and looks good. Does it really exist? American Classic has an answer with their latest clincher wheel, the Carbon 38.
The ‘Carbon 38 Clincher’ is the latest offering from American Classic in its totally unoriginal but practically named range of Carbon wheels. Clincher because it uses the classic system of tyres and tubes rather than tubulars and ’38′ because it has a 38mm rim depth, 20mm less than its big brother the ‘Carbon 58 Clincher’. What the 38 lacks for in naming originality though it makes up for in technological advancements with Series 3 Carbon rims mated to an aluminum braking surface, 3 spoke laced rear wheel and a 22mm wide rim profile.
