Piedmont Race Carbon Gravel Wheels



e*thirteen brings a unique perspective to gravel components, leveraging our long history in mountain bike performance wheels to develop gravel parts that don’t balk at long, rowdy, multi-surface rides.

Piedmont Race Carbon wheels are purpose-built for gravel riding e*thirteen-style, offering a light and dynamic feel for epic backroad or singletrack adventures and everything in between. New wider rims, improved serviceability, all-new Race Straightpull hubs, and our highest standard Race Level wheel build spec mean Piedmont wheels offer the perfect balance of responsiveness, precision, comfort, and reliability at an incredible value. 

Our Piedmont Race Carbon Gravel rims have a 26mm inner width, which provides exceptional lateral stability, accommodates a wider range of tire size and pressure compatibility, and incredible levels of traction and comfort. The double-butted spokes and lower profile height offer ample frontal compliance for reduced fatigue and increased grip. This combination also creates a responsive and dynamic ride feel. Additionally, the raised rim wells ensure easy seating of lightweight tubeless tires, while the hookless flanges provide excellent tubeless security and resistance to impact damage.

The Race Straightpull hubs have been highly weight-optimized while retaining the key features, durability, and ease of service of e*thirteen’s MTB Hub line. Utilizing our “Just Right Engagement” system, Piedmont hubs feature a 4-pawl, 3° freehub for excellent efficiency, quick acceleration, and flawless engagement. The unique floating thread axle minimizes preload drag and for simple tool-free servicing. 6-bolt brake rotor mounts provide creak-free performance and ease of service without special tools. The new alloy seal shield on the freehub protects the main seal.

The carbon rims come with e*thirteen's trusted Lifetime Carbon Rim Warranty, so you can push your limits and ride with confidence.
