If you had browsed down and read the diagram, you would have calculated a 15mm to 16mm inner width - making this a rim ideal for 700x20c, 23c and 25c tires.

The problem with H+Son is that their "aero" rims in 30mm and 43mm depth have atrocious circumferential consistency and inconsistent joint alignment - hence the reason the Velocity DeepVs and B43s are better.

Unless they've paid extra at the QA side of the factory - buyer beware.

Wouldn't mind testing one though - I imagine one will cross my path within the next 6 months.
