New Pacenti Forza-C wide, hookless carbon rims for road, gravel & cyclocross

Pacenti has taken their alloy Forza rim lineup and given it a tubeless-specific carbon fiber option that shares the asymmetric design but loses the bead hook. The new Forza-C has a 21.3mm internal width, making it ready for today’s wider road, gravel and cyclocross tires.

Because it’s hookless, it’s only for use with tubeless-ready tires, but you can run a tube in it in a pinch…just not with tube-type tires. Other features include a valve shelf to help you get a tight seal, 30mm rim height and 26.6mm external width.

It’s full UD carbon fiber, and comes in 24, 28 and 32 hole drillings. Don’t wanna build up your own wheels? They’ll do it for you with their own disc brake hubs and Sapim spokes (two-cross lacing) for wheels as light as 1,470g. Rim weight is claimed at 370g +/-15g. Rims are $500 each, wheelsets from $1,499. Available now.
