Thirty Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher by Black Inc
At first glance you might be mistaken in assuming that the Black Inc Thirty Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset is just another climbing wheelset. These all-carbon hoops blend feathery-light climbing power with superior aerodynamics and a wide, stable rim for an all-encompassing package of power. They charge down rolling hills of vineyards and blast through descents around careening bends with heart-palpitating drops. But these wheels aren't all rim--Black Inc pairs them with bearings from CeramicSpeed to craft hubs that take the ride to the next level with silky smooth bearings that glide faster. The bearings are designed with updated technology to surpass ceramic bearings of yesteryear, which required constant maintenance, so you can power to the front of the pack with less effort, and a feel that's unlike any other.

Black Inc credits this lacing design with a whopping 55% gain in stiffness and only a 1% weight penalty--though we suspect the rim width also plays a role. With the Thirty's shallow rim profile and wide design, the wheels feel sturdier than most lightweight hoops, making them also ideal for rough gravel roads, and the cobbled classics. While the rims and spokes come together with exceptional construction, there's no doubt that one of the most talked about pieces of the Black Inc puzzle is the hub. The CeramicSpeed bearings combine the buttery-smooth rolling of ceramic bearings with Black ...

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.
