Have you experienced riding lighter tires? feels like bike just to move quicker right? is why balance between width and has been crucial in bike rims There are efficiency gains be made light rims long as hold up are wide for the lighter wide bike tires. can expect durable, trail rim to in at 400g for wheels and for 29ers days.

The wider rim is…the the tire sit on trail and better your ride will due to cushion and grip. Of wider rims equal more due to material, but rims like Stans (25.5mm width 490g on and the TL28 (23mm width at for 26″) are getting wider rims lighter weights.
