The A-Force AL33 Rim Brake Wheel Set! Here you can buy our most popular handbuilt options for these wheels.  Want a custom wheelset built just for you? Head to our contact page!

The AL33 is a 33mm deep alloy rim designed with a toroidal profile for aerodynamic performance and speed. Read our article on the AL33 (where you’ll also find a discount code for 10% off!) for technical and background information. You can also book our set of AL33 test wheels for a ride to try before you buy! Just get in contact.

These wheels can be configured in 20/24 hole or 24/28 hole counts.

This set comes with Sapim CX Rays in your choice of silver or black with internal or external nipples. Nipples in silver are free of charge or upgrade to colour. More spoke and nipple info here.

You can choose between the following hubs and can read about these options here:

  • The Bitex RAF/RAR 12 hub series in your choice of colour
  • The Bitex 308 hub series, which has a two to one lacing pattern, and comes in black and carbon weave only
  • The Hope RS4 hub series in your choice of colour

The Bitex hubs above are only available with QR axles and the Hope hubs are available with any axle standard required.

Please note that for more powerful riders or larger riders over 100kg this set should be built up in a either 24/28 with BX308 hubs or 28/28 hole using Hope RS4’s and internal nipples are preferred.  Both of these setups are rated for riders up to 125kg; ride on!

If choosing an internal nipple build we don’t recommend tubeless tyres btw: it’s not possible to account for potential spoke tension drop accurately.  Instead we’d suggest a mix of Challenge handmade tyres and latex inner tubes; Ryan’s personal choice!

Please let us know what axle, and, if upgrading to colour nipples, what colour nipples you want in the comments box at check out.
