^ To put it plainly, wider rims are superior to narrow rims. Why? Where do we begin? Wider rims dramatically increase traction, reduce rolling resistance, decrease tubeless “burping”, provide a stiffer, stronger, lighter wheel, and plenty more. Let us introduce you to the Ibis 941 Carbon Rims; wide, lightweight, tubeless, and best of all: modestly priced. Since impact damage is the way most carbon rims are damaged, the 941 Carbon rims are hookless to increase resilience. By eliminating the inverted “J” built into the rim walls, the rim is designed with a solid rectangle in place of the hook, allowing the rim to be much stronger in the area where impacts occur. This spreads the impact out over a larger area that is also supported by more material. After extensive testing, Ibis found a 50 – 300% improvement in impact strength than competing rims with hooks, without any detriment to tubeless performance and reliability. Aside from the progressive rim width, the carbon fiber construction has allowed Ibis to build a 490 gram rim, which is lighter than many of the narrower, weaker, alloy rims on the market. Additionally the carbon material provides a stiffer, more responsive ride. The lack of wallowing sidewalls, and the dramatic increases in rim stiffness and contact patch area, enables a sturdier planted feel. Each spoke hole is individually reinforced with extra carbon to achieve a stronger rim than the spokes, so the rim won’t damage if a spoke breaks. Benefits of Wider Rims: Dramatically increased traction Reduced rolling resistance Less tubeless ‘burping’ Stiffer, stronger wheel Lighter than most narrow aluminum rims Better braking control Improved flat protection More predictable feel You can run a lighter tire with similar durability Hookless bead rims are far stronger Seats with floor pump 41 mm outside, 35 mm inside width Tubeless ready 6 bolt disc brake mount 29″ diameter Rim weight: 490g
