PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

WTB LaserDisc 29er Rim

LaserDisc rims are the best-in-class mountain rims. The design, borrowed from classic architecture, features WTB's I-beam with drilled-through eyelets that allow for higher spoke tensions. The well supported walls stiffen and stabilize the rim's box structure and do so with less material and a cleaner design. This proprietary central I-beam construction provides a virtual third vertical wall making for an incredibly stiff, yet lightweight rim. All this translates to better acceleration and improved longevity. Pinned at the seam for strength and QC'd by WTB's wheel masters, the LaserDisc rims are your best investment.

Unbendium Bulge: A band of material added at the ideal place on rim sidewalls to counter torsional as well as radial and lateral flex. This rib mid-line at the widest point encounters the highest loads on bump impacts and provides integrity for greatest strength benefit at minimal weight.

I-Beam: A centrally located member to counter spoke loads and provide torsional rigidity, this beam is a distinctive feature pioneered by WTB.

Safety Seal: Two raised bumps inboard of the horizontal shelves that locate the beads of a tire on it's inside diameter. These slightly higher bumps along with the positive inner diameter location of the bead help to retain the tire from getting pulled away from the hook during heavy lateral loading.

WTB 29er: WTB 29er rims have an ETRTO of 622mm diameter and a minimum bead opening of 21mm. Note that rim width is the defining element separating 29er rims from trekking, hybrid, and road racing rims.

Oversize/overweight charge applies to this item.

Bought this to replace a Maxxis that tacoed while hitting trails in Flagstaff. Took all but a few rides before it finally collapsed after riding a technical descent. Not very impressed.
