“All wheels are handbuilt in Greenville, SC, USA to exacting standards. Boyd Cycling provides wheels to consumers, bike shops, distributors, and bike brands throughout the world.”

Boyd Jocassee Wheelset

“For those of us looking for larger tires (36mm+), the new Jocassee gives a wide rim platform for modern gravel tires. Boasting a 26mm internal width, the updated Jocassee goes to a shallower and lighter 25mm depth. This allows the rim weight to go from 460 grams per rim down to 338 grams in a 650b and 353 grams in a 700c.”

Boyd Pinnacle Hookless Wheelset

“With the Pinnacle Hookless, Boyd Cycling is proudly at the front of the Gravel Revolution. A 700c Carbon Wheel, The Pinnacle Hookless is competition ready, designed ideally for gravel and cyclocross tires between 32-42mm in width. This is designed to be a stiff and responsive wheelset. Because the Pinnacle is a disc-specific wheel, we’ve been able to shed a few grams at the rim itself, reducing rotating mass without compromising safety, and the wheel’s unique 2.8mm offset amplifies spoke balance under heavy load.”
