|Options||29" Black TR38 Carbon Fibre 31mm Internal Rim Width IN STOCK NOW|
|DESCRIPTION||OUR ULTIMATE ENDURO WHEELSET - A REAL PODIUM SEEKER
NOBL have taken their previous TR38 and leveled it up! Aimed squarely at enduro riders, shuttle junkies and those who push their equipment to the limit, the new TR38 is designed for you. First of all the profile has been tweaked. The slightly shallower profile will bring in some compliance while maintaining the strength and durability you have come to expect from the TR38. Secondly, resin system revisions decrease 'brittleness' and once again improve impact resistance. Lastly, NOBL's new manufacturing process results in a 'raw' finish that produces a higher level of scratch resistance. Right at home on bikes with 150-170mm of travel, the new TR38 will conquer anything you throw at it.
500g +/- 15g, ERD 592 (29")
Oversized 3.5mm hookless lips
The heart of this wheelset is DT Swiss' legendary top of the range mtb hub the 240S. With a great combination of low weight, durability and the famous(and now upgradeable) Star Ratchet freehub design, these hubs really deliver high performance. The only drawback is a lack of colour choice.
Tubeless and Hookless
NOBL rims are produced to a high standard using Toray T700 carbon fiber. NOBL use a hookless design which is lower and rounder than most rims which provides more impact protection and increased resistance to flatting. The TR38 features a thicker bead lip at 3.5mm to provide increased impact protection. A curved bead seat helps set up your tires tubeless and makes them harder to burp. Typically a floor pump is all that is needed to seat the tires.
Selecting the right hubs, spokes and nipples are integral in creating the perfect ride experience. Based on your ride style and needs we can create a wheel that offers exactly what you need in terms of stiffness, handling and compliance.
