FALCon pro ar35 and ar45
We firstly applied Paintless (BlackTek) technology to our Pro rim manufacturing in Oct 2018. Since then, we’ve seen an increasing demand for these rims with higher strength and reduced weight. Now we are increasing our Falcon Pro series of rims!
Similar to our popular WR38 and WR50, the new rims are made without any post-production finishing. The final result is pure craftsmFanship - a beautiful raw finish, completely undisturbed.
The 35mm and 45mm deep rims are part of the “All Road” or AR series which is our most versatile collection of road rims.
Since we introduced AR35/45 via email, their super lightweight became one of the most discussed on our forum threads. Can you imagine that a 35mm deep rim comes at only 360 grams and a 45mm deep, 390g? This is how much our Flyweight AR35 and AR45 weigh.
Don’t worry - we haven’t lost our marbles. The lightweights are absolutely reasonable, to no detriment of the strength. We choose thinner material which allows us to form more layers, and use a new layup method to fine-tune the characteristics of the rim. The final result? Weight reduction and higher lateral stiffness and strength.
All Road 28mm Width
Featuring 28mm external and 21mm internal width (22.5mm hookless), AR35/45’s can handle everything from 23C road to 45C gravel tires.
Check out our new tire width chart to see how popular tires will measure out at here.
As the name suggests, AR35 is 35mm deep and the AR45 is 45mm deep. Riders find that the 35’s are more comfortable on rougher roads, offer enough stiffness to feel responsive, and are easy to control in crosswinds. Those looking for a racier feel with a greater aero benefit will prefer the 45’s.
What rim depth do you need? Here is a blog to help you decide.
