Kirk Pacenti just sent over a few images and details on their new TL28 tubeless mountain bike rims for 26″, 650B and 29er wheels.
The rims have a massive 28mm wide exterior width and 23mm internal gap. They measure just 18mm tall, giving them a solid balance between width and light weight. The 26″ rim comes in at just 360g, and the 650B and 29er are 409g and 438g respectively.
UPDATE: Just heard back from Kirk: Price will be $85.00 each, likely available through a dealer direct/consumer direct model.

The rims are designed with all mountain/trail bikes in mind, so their light weight doesn’t limit them to XC-only use. All sizes are welded construction, black anodized, 32 hole and made for disc brakes only.
Pricing isn’t final, but they’ll be available in mid-November 2011.
