The rim has a 27.5mm internal width, 35mm outer width and 25mm depth. Like their others, it uses a mix of UD and woven Toray carbon fibers of varied modulus to make a rim that’s both stiff and durable. And light. Claimed weight is just 415g. They’re shaped with a rounded center groove to ease tire installation with a small bump to then help the bead settle into the hook and stay there.
We’ve been testing the 29er XC rims and have been very impressed. Regular price is $475 per rim, so you can save $150 per pair by ordering soon. Original deal deadline was December 13, but they’re extending it until they fill a production run’s worth of orders. Details and more tech specs on their website.
Also available as wheelsets with either Chris King, Industry Nine or American Classic hubs, all built with Sapim CX-Ray spokes. 32 and 28 hole drilling options.
