Black Inc THIRTY

The THIRTY is a champion of versatility. It’s a lightweight wheel for climbing with an effective aero profile that’s virtually immune to crosswinds, the strength for gravel use and a broad rim to suit wider tyres.

When you want to ride it all, you need the THIRTY. It’s very light, incredibly stable in windy conditions, fast for its category, made for wider tubeless-clincher tyres, and so strong that we also recommend it for gravel. In short, it might be the perfect wheelset for the UK. The blunt-profiled 30mm rim is deep enough to provide an aero benefit, making this the choice of the pros for all but the most savage mountain stages, while remaining very light and shrugging off crosswinds. It’s made from a blend of ultra-high strength carbon fibre which gives the THIRTY a super-responsive feel, laser-guided cornering precision and exceptional durability. It’s Black Inc’s all-road, all-day, everyday hero.

The 21mm internal and 30mm external rim widths are tailored to suit 28-30mm tyres perfectly, enabling lower pressures, more grip, lower rolling resistance, higher confidence and a smoother ride. The THIRTY is available for disc brake and rim brake, and tubeless-clincher or tubular tyres. The rim brake version uses a proprietary textured brake track which greatly enhances braking performance in both dry and wet conditions. The proprietary CNC machined alloy hub features CeramicSpeed bearings, an oversized axle, and rapid engagement.

  • Proprietary CNC machined alloy hub shell
  • Tubeless Compatible
  • Oversized hub axle
  • Custom CeramicSpeed bearings
  • Option to run low tire pressures in conjunction with tubeless tires
  • Minimum recommended tire size: 700 x 25c
