If you are looking at these rims, you probably already know that Gigantex is one of the leading manufacturer of carbon rims in the world and arguably the most reputable in Asia. They produce for several larger brands and are highly sought after. These are not inexpensive rims made in China. They’re in a different league altogether. These are high quality 45mm carbon clinchers produced by Taiwan’s best rim manufacturer and arguably as good as any carbon rim manufactured anywhere today. People who’ve bought them from us in the past have remarked on their exceptional quality – they’re just really nice rims. While they’re not as cheap as that set of rims you saw on eBay, they are still half the price of comparable clincher rims available from major brands. These not the lightest carbon clinchers you can buy, but Gigantex’s philosophy is overall quality first, weight second. Still, at around 500 grams these 45mm deep, 23.4mm wide rims are still very light, and paired with a set of sub-300g hubs and Sapim Lasers, CX-Rays, or any other lightweight spoke, will build into a durable, quality wheelset that’s still under 500g.
