IMPORTANT - Minimum tire size 30mm. Max 70PSI.
This is not the wheelset to use with both 25mm road tires and also gravel tires. The Altamont Lite is perfect for that. The CCC is a gravel optimized wheelset, for when you want to have the best possible configuration for those larger tires.
If you're going to ride the gravel roads, we think you should know where they came from.
The CCC is a gravel-specific wheelset built to take you far off the beaten path. The new light weight, durable alloy wheelset complements Boyd’s current carbon Pinnacle 700c and Jocassee 650b offering and promises adventure at an affordable $700 price point.
The CCC, a name engrained in history as the wooded roads it represents, borrows its moniker from the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC was a voluntary public unemployment program designed to provide jobs for young men and to help families who faced challenges finding jobs during the Great Depression. In the mountains of South Carolina there are remnants of “Old CCC” roads deep in the woods that have become favorite exploration destinations for Boyd Johnson, founder of Boyd Cycling.
The 6069 series alloy rim weighs in at 415 grams in a 700c size and 395 grams in the 650b. Built with the highly rated Quest Disc Brake hubs, the complete wheelset nets a scant 1515 grams for 700c set and 1475 grams for the 650b. Spoke count options are 24f/28r and 28f/32r built using Pillar Wing 20 spokes and external brass nipples.
