Craftworx Ultima Aerodynamic Light Weight Alloy 700c Road Bike Rim 480grams 30mm Profile Ideal for Custom Wheel Building Machined Braking Surface Tubeless Compatible Design
AN AERODYNAMIC LIGHT WEIGHT ALLOY ROAD BIKE RIM. At 480 grams, our Ultima Aero is one of the lightest deep profile 700c rims on the market. Paired with light hubs and spokes, you can easily build a set of sub 1500 gram road wheels. Don’t let the weight fool you. The Ultima Aero is the strongest 700c alloy road rim that we manufacture making it an ideal choice for 90kg plus riders. We even offer drilling options up to 36 hole.
AMAZING RIDE QUALITY. Craftwork Ultima Aero rims are fast, light and incredibly strong. The key to this is the aerodynamic profile. Unlike most aero styled rims, Ultima Aero rims have a smooth, comfortable feel on the road, even on rough surfaces. Designed for running 23mm, 25mm and 28mm tyres, further enhancing rider comfort options. The braking surface is precisely machined to provide improved braking performance in all riding conditions.
THE BEST CHOICE FOR CUSTOM WHEEL BUILDING. High Quality finish, accurate and consistent rim dimensions and a wide range of drilling patterns available make these an ideal choice for building a high quality wheel set. Find yourself a quality wheel builder and you’ll have an amazing set of custom-built wheels.
UNMATCHED QUALITY, FINISH AND STRENGTH. Our Ultima Aero alloy road bike rims set the standard for manufacturing quality and finish. Our Quality Control tolerances are exceptionally tight. Every rim is tested, measured, weighed and visually checked to ensure that it is perfect. The satin finish on our alloy rims gives them a quality look and feel and the Laser Etched graphics has a subtle look that matches any bike. The process used to create this finish distresses the rim surface, improving durability and decreasing metal fatigue in the rim.
WARRANTY. Craftworx Ultima Aero Alloy Rims come with a 12 Months manufacturers warranty from the date of purchase.
Designed, Tested & Manufactured by Craftworx Cycling
Ultima Aero rims are the most aerodynamic in our 700c alloy rim range. They are available in a variety of drilling options to suit all types of custom wheel builds.
Lightweight and big on strength, we engineered the Ultima Aero rims for enhanced load-bearing capabilities making them ideally suited for riders in the 100kg plus weight range.
The Ultima’s no compromise design, engineered to be technically superior in both ride quality and performance. Workmanship and finish to an exacting standard, we go to great lengths to ensure each and every rim produced is perfect. This is the Craftworx Way. The lazer etched finished and precision-machined braking surface create a subtle, clean look that is distinctly Craftworx.
Constructed from our STSS hybrid alloy, these rims are perfectly balanced between weight and ultimate strength. Torsional stiffness has been achieved through the Ultima’s unique profile design, while at the same time enhancing rider comfort to a level that is similar to many carbon rims.
This lightweight, tubeless ready design runs on a 22mm wide rim platform allowing the rider to run a variety of modern tyre widths, including 23mm, 25mm and 28mm.

Craftworx XTrail rims are designed for riders looking for a high performance, light weight, tubeless ready, mountain bike / gravel rim that can carry a wide range of tyre widths.
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.
The narrow profile design of the XTrail rim, combined with the unique ride properties of our STSS alloy, creates a rim that is fast and agile through technical sections and compliant when riding over rock gardens, tree roots and unavoidable obstacles.
