Taking a modern approach, all Avant-Garde Nuance (AGN) rims feature lightweight, wide sections that are optimised for 25-28mm tires. It threads closely to the upper limit for most road frames, but maximises the tangible benefits of high volume, fast rolling tyres, resulting in more speed, comfort and traction on all road surfaces. The AGN also feature a completely new rim bed design for tubeless compatibility across all models, along with hooks that mate perfectly to form flawless seals. With a wider cross section, we've managed to create a rim with increased lateral stiffness.
In terms of finished aesthetics, our uniquely blasted, hard anodised-finish sees a degree of improvement over the X-Series, in view that many would consider the AGN as a lightweight pair of wheels for Gravel, CX or Touring with just a mere swap of tires. It is topped off with our logo, laser-etched on.
Our E.22 wheelsets are offered in an array of premium hubs to fulfil the needs and preference of the rider.
Each E.22 wheelset is handbuilt by one of our in-house wheelbuilders. Upon purchase, our wheelbuilders will get in touch with you, to confirm the colours of your components.
There are several factors that attribute to the strength, weight and durability of our rims.
If you refer the cross sections above, there are two things you would notice about the competitor's rim.
The first is, there are voids that surround the cross section, and this runs throughout the entire joint section of the rim.
Second, the competitor's rim has walls that are thicker than the E.22. We were able to achieve unparalleled strength and weight qualities in our rims because of a unique alloy that was used in its creation. Nothing is spared, starting with the base material which is largely, high quality aluminium from Australia and proprietary processes after extrusion. The result was a material with twice the tensile strength of conventional alloys.
