As fast on gravel as it is on the tarmac, the Alta is a versatile gravel focussed disc wheelset designed to take you further.
21.5mm wide internal rims maximise versatility, allowing a greater choice of tyre widths to suit the kinds of surface you want to ride; hard-packed Tuscan strade bianche, rocky American fire roads or good old British mud-baths, with the right rubber, the Alta can handle them all. With wider tyres come lower tyre pressures and a more comfortable, grippy ride. Although produced as a clincher rim, the Alta is tubeless-ready when fitted with our tubeless kit (or similar).
A robust 28-spoke, 2-cross pattern on both front and rear wheels means the Alta will stand up to whatever you throw at it off-road, while the aerodynamic rim profile turns the Alta into a racing calibre wheelset, for those who desire speed on their adventures.
An optional dynamo front hub (SON Delux 12) encourages you to #ridefurther by keeping your lights charged on longer adventures, while high-grade EZO cartridge bearing hubs will aid the wheels in running smoothly. The hubs are fitted for 12mm thru-axles, however, adaptor kits are available for other standards.
