Ollie 55 tubeless fat bike rim - 27.5"
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 629g
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 27.5" Ollie 55mm for PLUS conversions on 29ers and fatbikes. Suitable for tyres from 2.8" up to 3.25". The 55mm rim really makes best use of the 27.5+ concept. Narrower rims mean higher air pressures and that defeats the purpose of the fat(ter) tyres.
