Bikes are a reliable, emissions free way to invigorate yourself for a lifetime of outdoor sport and adventure. Our new economical TCX wheels are the path to improve your commute, get some fresh air or ride on the trails. Most trekking, urban or cyclocross bikes are equipped with heavy wheels making them hard to ride. Our reliable TCX wheels are light, durable, comfortable and quiet. Light- weight wheels roll faster on the flats, accelerate quickly, handle decisively and climb easier with speedy descents.

 A new concept for trekking is tubeless technology to resist flat tires. TCX wheels include our proven pre-installed AC tubeless tape and AC valves. Add your favorite tubeless ready clincher tires, pump in sealant and you are ready to go. Bead barb technology hooks on the tire bead to secure the tires in place without burping. For years, mountain bikers successfully rode the AC tubeless system, and now this convenient innovation is available for trekking.

 Bill Shook mathematically engineered his TCX rim design at 26mm wide x 21mm deep for structural stability and to stiffen the wheel. New larger hub bearings for increased durability. easy to maintain. TCX wheels are built with our finest AC 14/15 gauge spokes and hand finished to perfection. TCX disc wheels are the new choice of cyclocross riders who want tubeless technology and disc hubs at a budget friendly price. Works with tires from 23mm to 2.5. American Classic is fearlessly innovating where others have not ventured.

WIDE RIMS IMPROVE CYCLING PERFORMANCE

Everybody is talking about wider rims for both road and mountain bike. What does it really mean for you, the rider? There are a few wide rim profiles on the market but they are either heavy, or too light and flexy. Bill Shook used his mathematical abilities to design our revolutionary wide rims, attaining the goal of being light, stiff, strong, aerodynamic and wide, all in one rim. To start, wide rims mean riding lighter, smaller performance tires with cushiony, high air volume and firm surface grip. Larger width tires offer more air volume but they are heavy with a sluggish ride quality. The desired combined wheel and tire qualities are achieved by stretching out the smaller tire casing on a wide rim and effectively making the tire bigger. Also, smaller tires on wide rims reduce tire roll on the rims. With a narrow rim and a wide tire, the rim floats from side to side on the tire. Using a wider rim with a smaller tire minimizes float for improved handling, confidence and control. The rim is lower weight at the extreme outer edge of the wheel decreasing rolling resistance and boosting speed. Our wider, lighter rims translate into crisp accelerations, firm ground control, faster rolling on the flats and decisive handling for the extra edge needed by competitive athletes.

AC ROAD TUBELESS TECHNOLOGY

THE NEXT LEVEL

AC tubeless wheels take rim technology to the next level. Our mountain bikers are successfully riding and racing tubeless, and now this innovation is available for our AC road riders. Our tubeless wheels are set up with a base layer of AC fiber tape covering the spoke holes and two layers of AC honey colored tape to seal the rim. Next, install tubeless ready clincher tires and pump liquid sealant into the system through our proven AC valves. The liquid sealant replaces the conventional tube.

You may ask how our tubeless system works. Bill Shook designed the rim with a bead barb running along the edge of the bead shelf. When installed, the tire firmly pops into position over the bead barb. The tire bead centers and tightly grips the circumference of the rim creating a sealed environment to hold the liquid sealant without burping.

The number one reason to run tubeless wheels is to avoid flat tires. In the event of a puncture, the sealant quickly fills and closes small holes in the tire preventing flats caused by glass, metal and other debris. Pinch flats can not occur as the tube is not part of the system.

Our tubeless system is about speed. It lowers wheel weight at the extreme outer edge of the rim resulting in lower rolling resistance and better performance. In a traditional clincher set up, the tire and tube interface moves as the wheel rolls, creating friction and energy loss. With the AC tubeless set up, there is no frictional energy loss between the tire and tube because the tube is gone. Liquid sealant is lighter than a tube. You can ride lighter weight tires with our tubeless system because you don’t have to use tires made with heavy, inflexible puncture layers. Overall, our tubeless system is lighter and the wheel will spin up faster with less rider energy output. And the best part is flat tires are past history.
