Built for all-day trail rides and enduro racing, and developed with the World Championship-winning Atherton DH Team, our new Bravo wheelset rethinks carbon fiber from the ground up. The Bravo's Radial Impact Absorbing Carbon Technology (RiACT) is three times stiffer than our aluminum rims laterally, but absorbs radial impacts to withstand bigger hits and roll faster. Patented Bead Socket tubeless technology improves traction, and creates a lighter, stronger rim. Weighing less than 1720g (29er), the Bravo's 32mm WideRight profile increases tire volume without negatively affecting tread shape or sidewall height. With the added durability and quick engagement of our new Neo and Neo Ultimate hubs, the Bravo is the new benchmark for all trail wheelsets. Bravo wheels include: pre-installed tape for tubeless use and presta valve; 12x142mm rear wheels also include quick-release end caps and quick release; small parts bag, replacement spokes, and spoke tension readout for your unique wheelset. - Designed for Trail, All-Mountain and Enduro Racing - Faster engaging, 100% CNC machined Neo Ultimate hubs - Sapim Custom Force 2.0/1.7/1.8 spokes with Secure Lock aluminum nipples - RiACT system absorbs impacts and rolls faster - Bead Socket Technology for unmatched tubeless performance - WideRight rim design optimized for wider Trail and All-Mountain tires - 2-year warranty with 3-year crash replacement

Lighter and stronger than aluminum rims, the Valor’s carbon lay-up is engineered to absorb radial vibrations and impacts through a construction that is both elastic and strong. Stan's NoTubes has constructed a lightweight carbon fiber rim design not just to be stronger than aluminum, but also to perform better in real world riding conditions. Valor wheels include: pre-installed tape for tubeless use and presta valve; 12x142mm rear wheels also include quick-release end caps and quick release; small parts bag, replacement spokes, and spoke tension readout for your unique wheelset. - Designed for cross country racing and riding - Faster engaging, 100% CNC machined Neo Ultimate hubs - Sapim Custom Laser 1.8/1.5/1.8 spokes with Secure Lock aluminum nipples - RiACT system absorbs impacts and rolls faster - Bead Socket Technology for unmatched tubeless performance - WideRight rim design optimized for wider tires / 2.00 - 2.25 - 2-year warranty with 3-year crash replacement
The 303 brings a lot to the table, including heritage proven in the world's hardest races. At the center of the wheelset is Zipp's 77/177 hubset, which results in improved stiffness, durability, simplicity and versatility. The carbon wheel that helped pioneer the Firecrest rim platform for improved aerodynamics and crosswind stability also features the unspoken durability that has repeatedly won Paris Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders - Firecrest rim technology affords the rider more speed, more stability, and more strength. This technology offers stable, predictable handling, and the wider rim increases lateral stiffness while offering greater vertical compliance. Each Wheel Includes: - Zipp Tangente Quick Release Skewer - Zipp Tubeless valve – factory installed - Tubeless rim tape – factory installed - Valve core removal tool - Zipp 77D/177D thru-axle caps to fit 12x100, 15x100 and 12x142 dropouts

Road bikes are going where they’ve never gone before, are expected to do more, and are being ridden harder than ever. At the same time disc brakes are rewriting the rules of what’s possible with rim design. For this new era, the Zipp 303 Firecrest Tubeless Disc-brake wheelset sets the new standard. With a disc-specific, tubeless rim, the 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is now internally 21mm wide and faster than ever. Designed from the start as a tubeless rim, the 303 Firecrest features a rim bed made with internal ridges to lock the tire’s bead in place, ensuring secure performance, even when ridden at lower tire pressures. A new carbon fiber layup keeps weight low while maintaining the 303’s legendary durability. The rim’s lightweight design allows the 303 to glide up the steepest climbs while SRAM's robust 77/177D hubset keep the wheels stiff and responsive. Each Wheel Includes: - Zipp Tubeless valve extender and valve-core wrench - Zipp rim tape (factory taped) - Zipp Tangente quick-release skewer - Zipp thru-axle end caps
The age of traction, stability, and speed has arrived, and its name is the Roval Traverse 38 SL Fattie 650b wheels. They feature 148mm rear and 110mm front axle widths, but to turn them into descending machines is the 38mm internal rim width. The extra width also allows for more tire volume, which means increased suppleness in the ride quality. And not only this, but the ample width also better supports the tire, meaning that you'll experience less "burping" when riding tubeless. These wheels also include the Roval tubeless plug system, which is an easy and super lightweight solution for tubeless setups. At the front hub, you'll get a 15x110mm thru-axle (end cap options included), and at the rear, the hub features DT Swiss internals for quick engagmenet. And to top everything off, these wheels are hand-built to ensure a painstaking attention to detail. -Please note that this 148 version is exclusively designed for use with bikes designed with 110x15mm front axle and 148mm rear axle standards.
While there may be a linear relationship between increased tire size and increased fun, this relationship only holds true when wider tires are paired with the correct width rims. Having a 2.8", or high-volume, tire mated to a narrow rim makes for a squirmy, poor handling experience, and when you’re on the hunt for additional fun, these characteristics are undesirable. Lucky for you, the new age of traction, stability, and speed has arrived—and its name is the Traverse 38 SL Fattie 27.5. Along with light overall weight, stiffness, and durability, another top priority for the Traverse SL was ease of use. First off, we got rid of the creaky straight-pull spokes and corrosion-prone alloy nipples. Next up, we landed on 28 J-bend spokes, for front and rear wheels, that are all the same length—making it easy to find replacements if needed. And finally, we engineered a new hub design, with a wider profile and higher flange to aid in overall stiffness. While our 38-millimeter Traverse SL is already wider than most offerings, the benefits of three-inch tires become more apparent with a proper rim interface. In search for the proper width, our engineers tested various iterations, from 30 to 45 millimeters, to determine where the sweet spot lies. What they ended up with is a 38-millimeter internal rim width that turns the Traverse 38 SL Fatties into descending machines. A wide internal rim width endows riders with a variety of advantages that are exemplified even more with plus-sized tires. The extra width allows for more tire volume, translating into more supple ride qualities, and better support for the tire, meaning that you'll experience less "burping" when riding tubeless and a drastic increase in traction. After determining the proper rim width for the plus-sized application, we began designing the rim using the same low-weight, high-strength technologies used in the Traverse SL and the Control SL. With this, we started with our Zero Bead Hook design that effectively eliminates the biggest weak spot found in traditional rims, and topped it off by using high-modulus carbon fiber to keep the weight down. And to further this theme, the wheels also include the Roval tubeless plug system, which sheds an additional 50 grams-per-wheel compared to a rim strip Each Traverse 38 SL Fattie is hand-built to our own alloy hubs with DT Swiss Competition Race spokes. Inside our hubs, you'll find sealed cartridge bearings all-around, and a quick-engaging 54t DT Swiss star ratchet system in the rear that allows you to power over rocks and roots without delay. And while machines do a decent job of building wheels, we choose professionally trained humans to build ours, as they catch various flaws that a machine would otherwise miss.
