I think that the Archetype is a great rim. The finish is far more consistent and quality than the A23, and if you don't mind the brake track finish wearing off then it's a great option.

With that said I think it's been out done by the SL23 from Pacenti. The SL23 is wider, deeper, and lighter while still being just as rigid.


Have you gotten to check out the 25mm wide Hed rims?

I have a set of hard anno archetypes on a single speed bike, they are nice but the rims were pretty heavy, one was 468 and the other 472, the claimed weight is 450 grams, I also built up a set of Pacenti Sl23 rims to white industry hubs, cx-rays, 24 front 28 rear, the rims cam in at 451 and 449, total build was just under 1600 grams. They make nice training wheels but they really shine on gravel rides on my CX bike

actually the archetype claimed weight has been 470 since they edited the design in the first year. i have some for my cross bike laced to sram x7 hubs. heavy (pushing 1900) but they're great wheels for how hard i am on my cross bike. i have a pair of A23s coming to try road this season so eager to try this 23/23 or 23/25 combo everyone's been on about lately, though those won't be light wheels either with ultegra 6800 hubs and 32 spokes.

All the archetypes I get and I buy a lot are 480g or thereabouts. Never seen one at 470g.

Haven't gotten my hands on them yet. I've been trying to track some down though and I'll definitely post here once I get the chance to build up a set.

^ordered a pair of HED Ardennes SL, seemed like a great wheel set, unfortunately had to return mine due to receiving them with bad bearings in the rear hub. Hopefully my next set will roll a lot better.
