American Classic Road Tubeless Wheels take rim technology to the next level. AC's Mountain bikers are successfully riding and racing tubeless, and now this innovation is available for the AC road riders. The 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 the proven AC valves. The liquid sealant replaces the conventional tube.

You may ask how the 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.

Three decades of research, development and results bring the world’s fastest, technologically advanced tubeless road race wheels to you. Bill Shook mathematically engineered our 22mm wide, 310 gram tubeless rims for high performance and aero-dynamics with convenient tubeless flat proof technology. They are simple to set up because of the pre-installed inner AC fiber tape layer and outer AC honey colored double tape layer. Add your favorite tubeless ready clincher tires and pump liquid sealant into the system through our included, proven AC tubeless valves. The liquid sealant replaces the conventional tube. Your tires seal tight without burping on the rim’s large bead seat and bead barb. Low spoke count Series 3 lacing for torsional stability and stiffness. Hand built with our new AC Race Blade spokes specifically designed for this rim. Fast accelerating, nimble climbing and descending, steady cornering, smooth riding, speedy low friction rolling without flats. All this in one fast wheel set to make every race your best.
