Where's the holes? All fat bike rims have holes in them to save weight... right?
Well... no. See, our new Ollie™ 100 tubeless rims don't have cutouts in them; but they are light, in fact... they're lighter than most alloy 100mm rims that have cutouts.
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 26" Ollie 100mm for situations where every single mm of floatation matters. Suitable for tyres from 4.25" up to 5.05". The 100mm rim really ensures that every single possible mm of floatation is available when you need it.
