Why Wide rims for Your MTB wheel?(1)

In summary, wider rims offer you a softer ride, more cornering traction, better climbing, less burping, weight savings and a potential to run a wider array of tire profiles.

from photography to shipping, wider rim bikes is eye-catching. get more cool look.

Upgrading to a wider rim provides more support for the tire's sidewalls with low-pressure tubeless setups. This will improve cornering at low pressures by reducing a tire's tendency to roll off the rim. All this works together to improve traction and comfort.

It seems that we’ve always had new trends and technical advancements vying for our attention (and cash) in mountain biking.

30-40mm wide rims that are designed for regular MTB tyres. Are these a passing fad or will we all be riding super-wide rims in the future?


Thick vs Thin(By Michael Hanslip)

Over a few months I alternated between wide and narrow rims and in terms of ride feel, there is a discernible difference. Despite running both at the same air pressure, the tyres on the wide setup always felt firmer. It was as if they were over inflated, yet at the same time they also offered excellent grip—two traits I didn’t know could go together. The wide rims had completely removed the feeling of disconnect; it was a bit of a revelation for me because I never knew what caused it.

Where running lower pressures on a standard setup would nearly guarantee burping or tyre squirm, the wide rims allowed me to lower my usual pressures by 3-4psi. Even when running less than 20psi there was no vagueness in the steering and the tyres didn’t feel sluggish or underinflated. However, the improvement in traction was tangible and in rough terrain the tyres felt ‘planted’ on trail with less bouncing and pin-balling off obstacles.
