Thirty Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Clincher by Black Inc
Though much of the peloton is moving toward the more is more attitude for race wheels, a few notable names insist on the versatility of mid-depth rims for terrain covering grand tours, punchy classics, and the infamous stones of April. Black Inc's Thirty Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset features the mid-depth that checks all of those boxes, and the ever-expanding use of disc brakes in the peloton (look out for disc brakes in grand tours this year) means that they're no longer only fodder for the mud and stones of the northern classics. While disc brakes are certainly a boon to everyone from your average cyclists to your Boonens (who, incidentally, notched the first disc-brake win in the World Tour), Black Inc's primary focus is going, not stopping. The rim profile features a bullet-shaped aerodynamic cross section that preserves the benefits of a true NACA airfoil in stable conditions but doesn't get thrown around like a sail when the wind is unpredictable or you're actually riding in yaw angles greater than 5 degrees. That rim shape is fairly common around the industry today for the reasons listed above; however, Black Inc distances the competition in two ways. First, it owns its own production facilities, so it has complete control over the carbon lay-up from conception to realization.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
