New Light Weight Road Disc Rim
Starting immediately, all of our new road disc rim feature a layup that drops between 25g and 30g from each rim without compromising stiffness or strength. This means the disc wheels have more responsive handling, a lower rotating weight for faster accelerations, and a lighter overall weight to have you scaling the hills faster than ever before.

An appropriate tubeless rim tape must adequately cover all spoke holes. Our tubeless rim tape is durable, lightweight, has good adhesion properties and doesn't leave a residue once removed. The tape rolls typically cover 2 rims, or 4 rims if you use one lap each. It is okay to use 1 lap on MTB rims as it is lower pressure.

Here is our general recommendation on the tire width range that works best with a given internal rim width. This is an estimation of rim width tyre size chart to help identify what rims you should look at, however tire brands will have their own recommendations which should be adhered to. This information can be found on the sidewall of your tires. Generally speaking, if your tire is narrow compared to the rim, you risk pinch flatting and damage to the wide rim. If your tire is too wide compared to the rim, you risk burping/excess tire roll, and poor stability.
