Rims for the MTB
When building up a new wheel, you will need a bicycle rim and spokes in addition to the hub. In our shop, we offer bike rims for different tyre sizes and areas of use. For downhill and enduro riding, you should primarily choose an extremely stable rim that can also withstand roughest stone fields and radical jumps without defects. In other areas, such as cross-country riding, the weight plays a very important role. If you already own a certain bike hub or are considering a model, you absolutely have to pay attention to the number of holes when buying the rim and the bike spokes.

The common sizes for MTB rims are 26", 27.5" and 29". In enduro and downhill, 27.5" rims are predominantly used. On some Enduros and especially on Cross-Country bikes 29" rims are used. The advantage of the larger wheels is the smoother running and greater control when going over edges and roots. The 29" bikes run much smoother and roll over many an obstacle more gently than the smaller 27.5" wheels do. However, on some enduro tracks and DH trails you are better off with 27.5" rims, because the smaller wheels are much more agile due to their size and can be moved more dynamically through corners. A blanket answer to the question of whether 27.5" or 29" is better can therefore not really be given. It depends a lot on the routes, your riding style and your bike. 
For long tours, we also recommend carrying a few spare spokes. The abortion of a tour because of broken spokes on the bike is annoying and unnecessary at the same time!
Rims for disc and rim brakes
Of course, it is important that the rim is designed for the braking system available on your bike. Rims for use with a rim brake offer a special brake flank, which a disc-only rim does not have. You also have to choose the spokes according to the field of use. Some rims require special bicycle spokes. After lacing you should not forget to apply a pressure-resistant rim tape. High-quality rim tapes do not slip even under high loads and guarantee maximum protection for the bicycle tube. For an optimal fit, rim tapes are offered in different widths. Special truing stands are suitable for spoking and centering wheels. Generally, the lacing of a new wheel is not for beginners, but only recommended for experienced mechanics. Alternatively, you can have your wheel spoked by almost any bicycle mechanic.

Rims for singlespeeders and fixies

When setting up your wheel, you will need not only the track wheel rim and corresponding spokes, but also matching singlespeed or fixie hubs. We offer fixie rims for different applications and demands. For street action, you should choose a stable high-profile rim that can also withstand tricks and smaller jumps. For longer tours, the weight plays a bigger role. In this case, you should also attach great importance to brand quality and durability of the hub. A light-running wheel saves a lot of energy, especially on long distances. Light wheels can also be accelerated much faster. Carbon rims reduce the overall weight enormously and are an excellent tuning option.

The Fixie Rim - Also for the Style!

An important point when building a singlespeed bike is of course also the appearance. Here, the wide range of colors and profile shapes offers you a huge palette for your bike. Fixie rims for use with a rim brake have special brake flanks, which pure track bike rims partly do not have. Please check your intended use before buying and choose the rim model accordingly! For the perfect wheel assembly, different 28" rim tapes, tubes and tyres are offered.
