In the world of cycling, everyone wants to save weight on his or her bike. On a full suspension mountain bike, it is even more important to lose weight where you can as the suspension linkage will always be more substantial than a bike without it and hitting a big hike-a-bike section with a bike that is heavy is not fun. Saving rotational weight is still seen as the best kind of weight to lose.
A great place then to save weight is on your wheels, why not then buy a carbon fibre mountain bike rim and mate it to the hub of your choice and have the wheelset of your dreams. All of our mountain bike wheel rims are built using Toray T700 carbon fibre. Allowing us to create you a brilliantly stiff but lightweight wheel rim.
This stiffness and lower weight mean our wheel rims will help to supercharge your wheelset, your wheels will accelerate faster than you will believe. As soon as you pedal, the power will be transferred into moving your wheels. Riding through a rock garden, you will not need to think about your rim wobbling and sending your tyre into a nicely sharpened rock, ruining your day. As well as this they will help to reduce trail chatter. Carbon fibre is much better at muting out trail vibrations than aluminum rims.
We have carbon fibre wheel rims available in 26er, 27.5”, and 29er forms, whatever your bike we will have a model of rim to fit it. 27.5” and 29er rims are also available in a plus fit to maximize the benefit you get with Boost hub spacing. All rims are also tubeless ready to allow you to forget about fitting tubes, helping to reduce your bike weight further and more importantly lowering your risk from punctures.
