Our H Plus Son Archetype road rims are manufactured to our exacting standards using our patented Hybrid alloy creating a rim that is strong, light and durable. Fit and finish is everything you expect from H Plus Son, in a word, immaculate.


Our 23mm wide platform has proven to be the ideal rim width for modern road bikes and has now been copied by leading wheel and rim manufacturers the world over. When riding, the benefits of our wide platform design is immediately evident, improving cornering stability and power transfer. It also works perfectly with 25mm and 28mm road tyres, the choice of most road bike manufacturers.


The brake surface is precision machined for enhanced stopping power. We anodise Archetype rims after machining.

Engineered to be both light and strong, the key to this is our STSS hybrid alloy. STSS is up to 20% stronger than alloys used by most manufacturers.
