I see. Thanks for the confirmation.

After much reading, it appears that arc is more popular then erc.

The differences between erc and arc is mainly inner width and profile. But I guess most people went for arc

I have both. ERC on my rain/ winter bike (25/25). ARC 48mm on my aero-ish bike (23/25).

ARC developed for aero indeed.

Another difference is that the ERC are stronger. Drops up to 10/15cm are in the specs.

There are more aero people here in WW than endurance people. Hence more ARC than ERC. Endurance people spend also less money on wheels I suppose.

If you do a bit of reading, the erc are nearly as fast as Zipp 303’s in a straight line but deal with stall better from higher yaws and handle wider tires better. I have no idea how much aero they give away vs the ARC but it must be miniscule. I built a frame up so could have chosen whatever. Sub 1500g tubeless ready rims, 19mm internal that handle cross winds well ticked all of my boxes. This is coming from Enve 4.5’s and I’m very happy with the ERC. If I remember correctly, ARC top level rims are 65 for the 1100’s and the ERC’s are 47. That’s another key decision to make

Already pulled the trigger for erc. The reason I am considering the arc is that the pricing now is very similar. As what TonyM mentioned, the main reason I go for erc is built stronger.

Whatever the reason, I think you made a good choice.

Thanks pal, guess my valve sticker is missing. Do you still stick the sticker even using the tubless valve provided?
