Ollie 55 tubeless fat bike rim - 26"
Where's the holes? All fat bike rims have holes in them to save weight... right?
Well... no. See, our new Ollie™ 55 tubeless rims don't have cutouts in them; but they are light, in fact... they're lighter than most rims that have cutouts. Coming in at a measly 596g
plus... you will need to add a vinyl rim strip (and a lot of sealing tape) if you want to run "drilled out" rims tubeless. So the weight will end up even higher in the end.
Why is tubeless important? Where have you been hiding for the past 10 years? Tubeless, especially on fat tyres, means lower pressures. This equals better floatation and more traction.
We recommend the narrower Ollie 55mm for trail riding where you're running 4.25" (or skinnier) tyres. The narrower rim will give the tyre a fantastic profile for more agressive riding. plus... it's a hell of a lot lighter than wider rims.
26" Ollie 55 tubeless - 55mm wide - 596g - 32H - rrp (AUD) $149
