The new Altamont Lite features the same rim bed, same width, and same shape as the 2016 Altamont, but with a 25mm deep profile. This gives a strong, yet very lightweight wheelset option that is a great option for those looking for the ultimate in an alloy climbing wheelset.

WHY HANDBUILT WHEELS?
At Urbane we believe that how a wheel is built, is as important as the components with which it is built. We build all of our wheels to exacting standards including spoke length, spoke tension, spoke-count and stress relieving.
On the technical side of things, our build process includes repetitive spoke stress relief, meticulous tension measurement/balancing, and truing tolerances of less than .5mm.
We stand behind every wheel we build and offer complimentary truing for 5 years on any wheel we build. If a spoke ever breaks that has not been obviously damaged by impact we will replace it free of charge.
For more information please check our Hand-built wheel page or call our Service department on the phone number at the top of the page.
