Our friends at Pacenti Cycle Design are offering off.road.cc readers the chance to win a set of their brand new £1,000 Forza-C Wide 30mm Carbon wheels in either a 650b or 700c size. And if you are not lucky enough to scoop the big prize, Pacenti has 10 runners-up caps for you to wear on your own gravel adventure. That's a total prize value of £1,150!
Pacenti Cycle Design hand-builds all their wheels in the UK. The whole process from hub, spoke, rim selection and even tyre-fitting, if you choose that option, and then re-tensioning all happens in their workshop down in Devon.
Here's Pacenti to tell us more about the first place prize -
"Our Forza-C wide rims are the heart of this wheelset, and they are optimized specifically around tubeless tires. The inner width of 24 mm is wider than our standard Forza-C rims and provides for more air volume (comfort) and improves tyre profile (control) for all tyres; from a min 28mm to max 2.25".These rims are the result of a clean-sheet design that brings our best thinking to the table on what a rim should be.
The asymmetric profile provides good spoke tension when lacing to offset hub flanges, resulting in a ≈1400 gram wheelset built with 28 hole front and rear Pacenti hubs and Sapim D-Light spokes which are laced two-cross to optimize strength and low weight."
We've not tested the Forza-C Wide wheelset, but we have tested the Forza- C over on road.cc. Stu gave it a fantastic 9/10 review and summed them up with this quote "Light, strong, good value – you don't have to pick two, you can have all three" That's an impressive verdict from Stu, and hopefully, the Forza-C wides will follow suit. You can read his review here.
