|DESCRIPTION||The NOBL TR45 is the most advanced rim we've made. We felt the industry was lacking a performance oriented, plus sized rim that could withstand aggressive riding and still be lightweight. We've taken all that we learned with double wall rim development and spent the last year and a half working on our new plus rim using a hybrid single wall construction. Through several molds and countless design changes, we realized we would have to come up with something special to meet our goals.
This is such an incredibly labour intensive rim to make they are each assembled by hand by the one most experienced builder at our manufacturer and take up to 5 times as long to make as many other carbon rims!
Create a single wall design that can absorb larger impacts than a traditional design
Develop a new mold technology which can vary pressure through the molding process.
Tubeless design that is easy to set up
Must be laterally stiff. Much stiffer than other single wall rims!
Must be class leading, below 500 grams
The TR45 features a 38mm internal width as we felt 40mm was slightly too wide for some full size plus tires, and we wanted them to work with the new breed of wide trail tires (2.5-2.6"). As with our burly double wall rims, the TR45 shares the same oversized 3.5mm thick hookless lips with a smooth radius to reduce pinch flats. The bead seat width and dimensions of the bead lock are the same, but that's about where similarities end.
We used secondary drop channels with their own bead retention which aids in tubeless setup and also increases lateral stiffness. Simply pull the tire bead into the two drop channels and inflate.
Traditional single wall designs lack wheel stiffness which is why most companies selling them have to market "compliance" and claim their rims follow the terrain better. Well there can be merit to that, we know that discerning customers not only want the lighter weigh benefits of carbon, they want a rim that stands up longer, feels snappy when cornering, and controlled when charging through rough terrain. Enter the TR45!
