The hookless rim has a 24mm internal width, allowing the widest choice of tyre widths to suit whichever surface you want to ride; hard-packed Tuscan strade bianche, rocky American fire roads or good old British mud-baths, with the right rubber, the Alta can handle them all. Our confidence-inspiring new IMPACT+ technology introduces a more flexible resin at the rim edge, offering improved protection against impact.”
