May 26, 2017
Introducing an Aventon Exclusive BLB carbon wheelsets. If you're having a hard time picking which model to get for your fixed gear, we are here to help.
When it comes to picking your next wheelset, every rider eventually wants to go carbon. The benefits for this upgrade range from lightweight, more aerodynamic and let's face it a huge aesthetic upgrade. Upgrading your wheels will make your bike feel brand new and better than ever. Carbon wheels improve the ride quality, make it easier to accelerate, and climb. With the 3 different rim depths we offer which is the right one for your Aventon?
First off you need to figure out what you prefer more, aerodynamics, or light weight. As the wheels get deeper two things happen. You increase the aerodynamic advantage at higher speeds, but you also increase the weight of the wheels. With the 38mm, 50mm, and 90mm, give you options on what wheels fit your style best.
The 38mm BLB Carbon wheelset is the lightest of the 3 sets since it has the shallowest rim depth. This makes your bike feel a lot easier when accelerating, and when you're climbing. Another added benefit is if its windy where you ride you won't be pushed around when you are on the road. If your looking to shave some serious weight off your ride, this is the depth for you.
Next up, we have the 50mm BLB Carbon wheelset. These rims increase the rim depth which improves aerodynamics at higher speeds. They will not feel as light off the line, but you will feel the benefits when your up to speed. Increasing the rim depth will also increase the stiffness of the wheels, so during sprints you won't feel flex like you would in stock wheels.
Last, but not least we have our 90mm BLB Carbon wheels. These are by far the most aerodynamic wheels, but are also the heaviest. If you're looking for the fastest wheels we offer, these are the answer. With a 90mm rim depth, you're looking at a all out race ready wheelset for the track, and something that will turn heads on the street.
