H+Son Archetype rim

$ 95.00

Upon its introduction, H+Son's aptly-named Archetype set a new standard as to what should be considered the perfect all-around rim.

A 23mm width, 25mm aero profile, and G609 alloy construction makes these lightweight rims stiff and ideal for building bombproof wheels, even at lower spoke counts.

• width: 23mm (17mm internal)

• ERD: 595mm

• material: G609 AL

• internal width: 17mm

• invisible welded rim joint

• drilling: 20, 24, 28, 32, 36h

• brake surface is polished/anodized after machining for a non-machined look

• max tire size: 43mm

• colors: black, polished silver, hard-anodized gray

• weight: 470g

Everyone always wants to know if Archetypes can be run tubeless, and there doesn't seem to be an easy answer to that question.

We know some people who have done it successfully, and others who have failed miserably. Among those who have made it work, some say only at super low psi, while one guy said it only works at higher psi.

It probably depends on the tire, the terrain, the rider, the direction of the wind, whether Mercury is in retrograde, etc. but the fact of the matter is that we don't really care, man. Figure it out.
