Derby is a small company based in Marin, California, whose claim to fame is being first to manufacture ultra wide carbon MTB rims, a development which has since gone mainstream.

According to Derby, newer Shimano, SRAM, and Campy brakes will all clear the rims, but older Shimano Dura Ace and Ultegra brakes maybe a little tight.

Derby’s newest rim is a tubeless ready clincher with a 23mm inner diameter, 29mm outer diameter, and 32mm depth. They’re intended for gravel or cyclocross usage and can be paired with tires anywhere from 23mm to 40mm wide.

The rim brake track has been dyno tested to over 300+ C (~575F) without warping.

The rims will be available in two versions. The first is a disc model that ditches the brake track and utilizes a hookless sidewall. The rim brake version has identical dimensions but weighs 10 grams more at 440 grams.

Each of the rims ships with a small permanent logo, but different decal kits will be available aftermarket.
