H PLUS SON Rims are here!

Formation Face @ $190
Formation Face is a true “V” profile rim. Without any stress points in the sidewall, the uniform triangle shape improves the rim’s lateral stiffness in comparison to SL42. The simple profile shape also saves weight by reducing the distance between the bead hook and the spoke bed. Because of the thinness of the sidewalls, technical hurdles had to be overcome in engineering a welded joint. Despite the profile height, we were able to reduce the weight to around 615 grams (plus or minus 15 grams) using the G609 aluminum alloy which is also 30 percent stronger than the 6061 aluminum alloy used in standard rim manufacture.

Archetype @ $190
The perfect all around road rim. At 470 grams, this rim has proven to be light yet not sacrificing strength, stiffness, and stability. The well accepted 23mm wide profile mimics a tubular tire, where the advantage can be felt immediately while taking corners as the tire is no longer shaped as a light bulb, flopping over with high load. Our impeccable H Plus Son workmanship and our invisible welded rim joint comes standard with each rim.
