Whether you call it 650B or 27.5, this mountain bike standard is here to stay. American Classic was a believer from the beginning and now introduces their second generation of 650B wheels and rims. Blending the best features of 26” and 29” mountain bikes, the advantages of 650B are legion. 650B riders tout the 29er big wheel advantages of lower rolling resistance and high speed, better traction, improved roll over characteristics and larger contact patch. Smaller like 26”, the 650B system is light weight, offering quick maneuverability and acceleration, a lower center of gravity and reduced suspension travel limitations.
The American Classic All Mountain Tubeless Disc wheelset is the stronger, workhorse version of American Classic's proven cross country tubeless wheels in 26, 29 and new 650B. American Classic All Mountain rims are super wide at 28mm wide x 23mm deep to stiffen the tire and wheel-ground response and to handle the extra duty of free riding. They withstand the tortures of high speeds, re-accelerating, drops and downhills without compromising nimble handling. Light enough for accelerating, quick handling and firm control. Bead barb technology hooks on the tire bead to help keep the tire in place without burping. Many choices of disc hubs to dial in your equipment needs. Experience controlled, confident free riding for riders obsessed with pushing the limits.
