Mcfk already had two depths of carbon road rims in their catalog, but now it’s time for two more. Wanting to provide consumers the ability to mix and match front and rear depths, the new rims slot in nicely with the original 35 and 55mm versions.
Stating that their rims are 100% made in Germany, these particular rims are meant for road and cyclocross use – but they are disc brake only.
All of the rims measure 26.5mm wide externally, and 18mm wide internally and are tubeless ready with a hooked bead profile.
There isn’t a good photo of it, but the rims claim to have an integrated valve design with a special valve seat that claims to “make the valve head disappear”. It sounds like the valve seat is sunk into the rim channel which makes the installation of tires easier.
Inside the rim, you’ll find laminated spoke holes which are formed rather than drilled, and preformed ball head nipple seats made to fit Sapim and DT Swiss nipples for the perfect build.
For the 45mm rims, wheelset weights start at 1330g and prices at 1,788.90 €.
The 25mm deep rims use the same internal and external width as well as construction.
The biggest difference is the height which appears to save about 25g per rim with complete wheels starting at 1250g. Complete wheelsets still sell for 1,788.90 €.
