TB14 was inspired by the classic aesthetics of rims from the era when steel frames ruled competitive cycling and benefits from contemporary improvements in rim manufacture and profile design. From sourcing double eyelets to crafting new moulds for the valve badge and its hardware, H+Son dedicated neurotic attention and careful detail to every aspect of this rim.
The pairing of a 23mm wide profile with a 23mm tire is fast becoming the industry standard for competitive road cycling. The wider rim adds stiffness and gives a profile that resembles a tubular tire. The advantage of this rim/tire profile can be felt immediately when taking corners as the tire is no longer shaped like a light bulb, flopping over with high loads.
The TB14 is made with the stiffer and stronger G609 aluminium alloy and features our unique and invisible welded joint. Rims are anodized after machining.
VIA road hubs are build on ceramic hybrid bearings (Bearings: ABEC3, Si3N4. Ball: Grade 5) and EZO bearings to provide fast and smooth riding.
In our overall design of the product we insist on using only highest quality bearings that reduce friction while ensuring longer wheel life. We use only the highest performing product to date.
