With the ever increasing popularity of fat bikes comes more choice. Frames are now offered in steel, aluminum, titanium and carbon. Builders are exploring both front and rear suspension options. And now, the wheelset options are growing thanks to Velocity’s new Dually mid fat rim for the 29+ crowed (read: Krampus).
This is the first double walled rim intended for this segment of the fat bike market (29+ and racing). Even with the extra material the rim comes in at a light 675g. Reinforced sidewalls are present to help prevent damage when running ultra-low pressures, and the rim is compatible with tubeless ready tires.
The initial offerings will come either a 26″ and 29″ diameter with a 32h drilling, in polished or black, and should arrive in early September. Pre-orders have already started, and we can expect full wheelsets to be offered up from Velocity’s in house wheel building group, The Wheel Department. Oh, and these hoops are made right here in the USA at their Jacksonville, FL location.
Full specs and MSRP past the break.
