Our unique patented Oohbah™ profile with inverted tube well, increases rigidity immensely compared with rims currently available. Additionally the Oohbah™ allows us to optimize the design and drastically reduce weight to offer the toughest performance hoops in their price to weight ranges. The sectional profile is super rigid, while the BeadNip™ ensures that the tire remains in the beadseat, even while riding at minimal tire pressure the nip also reduced snake bites.
The Perfect All Mountain or Aggressive XC Solution
Rated 3 out of 5 by Chris930 Looks great and is strong but tubeless is tough
Only buy this rim if you intend to use tubeless compatible tyres. It's tough to get it right and the tubeless valves are very difficult to fit due to the inner rim profile. It blew two sets of Nobby nics off the bike on me even though they were tubeless compatible (previous syncros wheels on Alex rim x49's which weren't tubeless managed to keep the tyres on. Mountain king 2's or other stiff walled tyres are better
On the plus side, they look class and are very strong. Lace them up to XT hubs and Dt Swiss Competition spokes and you've a great and cheap combination but not the lightest a 2000g or so
