Pacenti Forza Wheelset tubeless ready

£397.00


The Pacenti Forza is the third iteration of there road rim. It addresses the problems with the V2 SL23 rims.

The factory has changed - Sun Ringle no longer make them as a result they are round and flat. There is no silly plate at the join to rattle loose anymore. The rim is heavier averaging 480g which means it is alot stiffer and it is robust. 

The rims is 24mm wide, 20mm internal width, 25mm deep and the rear rim is aysmmetric with a 2.5mm offset. The brake track is 10mm deep. So it builds into wheels that simply perform in all conditions.

The aysmmetric rim means higher non drive side spoke tension and therefore a more reliable wheel. The mass and the rounded shape of the rim mean a very stiff rear wheel. 

The spoke used with the miche hubs are black laser front and force rear. Sapim HM nipple washers are used along with 14mm black alloy self locking nipples.

With the Carbon Ti hubs black Sapim CX-ray spokes are used with black Sapim alloy nipples and washers. I avoid nipple failure by using a corrosion inhibitor on the spoke threads and spoke that are just the right length. 

Hubsets used.

Miche Primato syntesi because they are simply very good at being hubs. Big 6001 bearings, a 12mm steel rear axle and very spare part is available should you need it. Freehub option are Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed or Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed.

Carbon Ti because the are reliable lightweight madterpiece. 6803 and 6903 bearings are used, a titanium 56t ratchet ring and a 4 pawl freehubs body. Choose from Shimano 11speed, Campagnolo 11/12 speed or SRAM XDR freehubs.

Carbon Ti hubs come in Matt black, gloss black, polished silver, matt silver, red, green, blue and acid green. If you don't tell me which colour I will assume gloss black. If colours are picked then silver CX-ray spokes are possible .With silver hubs silver spokes are assumed.

The spoke count is sensible at 24F/28R.  I would suggest a weight limit of 100kg. 

With the Miche hubs:

Rear wheel weight is 965g

Front wheel weight is 740g

With the carbon Ti hubs:

Rear wheel weight is 770g

Front wheel weight is 680g

These are not the lightest wheels I build but they are very stiff and look good. So that your reason for buying them. The weight limit will be conservative so dont take it too seriously. 

the wheel are supplied tubeless ready with tubeless tape, valves and IRC tyre levers. however standard clinchers can be used. 

The Cycle Clinic offer IRC tubeless tyres (Roadlite, Formula Pro RBCC , Formula Pro X-guard or Formula Pro Light)  because IRC have the best rubber compounds on the market.
