|Options||27.5+" Black TR45 Carbon Fibre 38mm Internal Rim Width - IN STOCK NOW|
NEW BOUNDARIES-Possibly the best carbon plus rim on the market
The TR45 took years to develop, but it was worth the wait! Our proprietary moulding process and hybrid single wall construction yield an incredibly light and strong rim! The unique hybrid single wall design allows for extra reinforcement in key areas that would not be possible with a classic box section profile.The rim offers incredible lateral stiffness which is a weak point of more traditional single wall rims. This keeps the wheel feeling responsive and controlled when pushing the limits.
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.
Tubeless and Hookless
NOBL rims are produced to a high standard using Toray T700 carbon fiber. We use a hookless design which is lower and rounder than most rims which provides more impact protection and increased resistance to flatting. 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.
