Key Features

Tyres

Designed with a 30 mm internal rim width, and suitable for use with 2.2″ tyres, but ideal for 2.3″ and wider tubeless tyres.

Spokes

We chose the top-of-the-range Sapim aero spokes, CX-Ray. The CX-Ray receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke, and offers unique strength and flexibility.

Nipples

Nipples are 16 mm brass and come with a square head, so you can achieve precise tensioning.

Bearings

Sealed stainless steel cartridge Hope Pro 4 bearings throughout.

Hub & Freebody

Our 29″ WIDE rims are laced into incredibly versatile and easily serviceable Hope Pro 4 hubs, with a proven reputation for bulletproof quality time and time again. The hub shell is machined from a single forged aluminium billet and comes with a standard six bolt fitting.

Advantages of Wider Rims

A wider rim delivers better sidewall support so in many cases you can run lower pressures in your rubber. Tires mounted on wider rims don’t burp as easily. Lower pressures, even a pound or two, do several beneficial things, including increasing the contact patch, which results in better traction. Running lower pressures on varied terrain actually reduces rolling resistance. Wider rims are stronger and stiffer. With increased traction comes increased braking control.

You can’t have too much traction.

 

Benefits of Wider Rims

  • Dramatically increased traction
  • Reduced rolling resistance
  • Less tubeless ‘burping’
  • Stiffer, stronger wheel
  • Lighter than most narrow aluminium rims
  • Better braking control
  • Improved flat protection
  • More predictable feel
  • You can run a lighter tire with similar durability
  • Hookless bead rims are far stronger
  • Easy to mount tubeless with just a floor pump

Using an asymmetric design we have equalised spoke tensions and built a package that leaves descents in its wake, whilst cutting down weight where it isn’t needed for energy sapping climbs.

100% hand built and pre fitted with tubeless tape, Concept Speed wheels are tubeless ready from the box.
