Medium weight, high end touring rim with CSS

Ultra hard wearing Carbide Super Sonic brake surface, allowing fantastic braking and wear characteristics. The carbide is projected at seven times the speed of sound on to the rim embedding it into the alloy. Unlike a ceramic surface it cannot flake away as it is part of the rim (not a layer). Single eyeletted cross country or fast touring rim.

The ONLY recommended brake blocks are Swisstop C.S.S. Blue V-brake blocks (SJSC part # 32142).

What Spokes To Use With This Rim With A Phil Woods Hub?
25 Jan 2016

Without having the hub here to measure we would have no way of knowing what size spokes you'd require. Most online spoke calculators need the rim ERD measurement which is 601mm for this rim. So with this measurement and your hub you should be able to use an online calculator to work out the spoke length.

Heavy Duty Touring
20 Jun 2014
Would you recommend these for fully loaded transcontinental touring? Quality, strength, durability and braking performance are all priorities. I currently have DT Swiss TK540s which I haven't yet used. They look lovely, but I'm not sure they're built for the long haul.

For heavy and fully loaded touring, in the 700c size we'd actually recommend the Rigida Sputnik rim. It is a much cheaper rim and does not use the CSS sidewalls but is the strongest and most durable rim we have. The TK540's are good quality rims, but I would have to agree on being unsure with how well they'd hold up for long and heavy touring.
