All Mountain. All Day.
The TR36 is your go-to for your mid to long-travel trail bike. It's strong, stiff and the perfect width for today's modern trail tires.
The all-new TR36 features a revised lower profile that helps take the edge off sharp impacts. This keeps the ride smooth and controlled without sacrificing the precise feel that riders have come to expect from the TR36. A new resin system and layup tweaks make this the strongest TR36 ever!
430g (27.5?), 443g (29?)
ERD: 553mm (27.5?), 591mm (29?)

Internal - 30mm
3mm reinforced hookless lips
Tubeless and Hookless
NOBL rims are produced to a high standard using Toray T700 carbon fiber. We use a hookless design that is lower and rounder than most rims which provides more impact protection and increased resistance to flatting. A curved bead seat helps set up your tires tubeless and makes them harder to burp. Typically a floor pump is all that is needed to seat the tires.
The all-new TR36 was designed to tackle the roughest lines you can throw at it and handle them with poise and confidence. Designed with mid to long-travel trail bikes in mind, the TR36 will help you conquer new lines, or shave seconds off old ones.
ALL NEW DESIGN
We've taken everything we've learned from the past two generations of the TR36 and rolled in a host of tech improvements that result in the best performing trail rim we have ever created. Resin system and layup tweaks result in improved impact resistance and handling characteristics.
At the heart of this wheelset is the completely silent U.S. manufactured Onyx Racing hubset.
Onyx racing hubs liberate your bike wheels and transform your ride.
Onyx hubs transfer power from your pedals to your rear bike wheel instantly for faster acceleration and more control.
The patented sprag clutch design removes the play and clickety??"clack of pawls against teeth in the rear hub to silence your coasting.
Increase your control on technical climbs with sprags that ramp up with torque to smoothly apply driving force, and instant engagement with absolutely zero lag.
Selecting the right hubs, spokes and nipples are integral in creating the perfect ride experience. Based on your ride style and needs we can create a wheel that offers exactly what you need in terms of stiffness, handling and compliance.
Spoke and nipple combinations available:
We build all of our 27.5" wheels 3-cross and our 29" are built 2-cross by default. Our standard builds are all 32h as we find the higher spoke count is only marginally heavier than 28h due to the lighter rim weight and 32h builds are more reliable. We find these combinations to be best for most riders, but we can do custom lacing to fine tune wheel stiffness for discerning riders, just ask.
Sapim Race - 2/1.8/2 - Race spokes are double butted and are used for the strongest and stiffest wheel builds. Handles abrasion from trail debris. Weight (64 pcs x 260 mm) 363 g
Sapim D-Light - 2/1.65/2 - Light, strong, economical. The D-Lights are double butted and are the best choice for most riders. Does not stretch and twist poorly like 2/1.5/2mm spokes. More elastic and lighter than Race spokes. Weight: (64 pcs x 260 mm) 307 g
Sapim CX-Ray - 2/2.3/0.9/2 - The lightest and most resilient mountain bike spokes available. CX Rays are bladed so they have aerodynamic properties and have the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. Strong enough for competitive use. Weight: (64 pcs x 260 mm) 272 g
2.0mm Sapim brass - great durability and strength - brass colour only
2.0mm Sapim/DT Swiss Silver Alloy nipple - for ultimate in low weight. Not as good long term durability or strength compared to brass and prone to corrosion in long-term so consider replacing every 2/3 seasons.
2.0mm Black DT Swiss Brass - Black coated brass nipples - top performance and looks - bear in mind brass doesn't take coatings well so can look a little worn after building due to surface contact with spoke keys.
2.0mm DT Swiss Squorx Prolock - brass for ultimate strength and durability - extended spoke head with spline fitting on inside of rim for increased strength and ease of truing with special tool. Bear in mind brass doesn't take coatings well so can look a little worn after building due to surface contact with spoke keys.
Sapim Double Square Alloy - Our wheelbuildes favourite - a top quality alloy nipple with great durability and increased length of head for strength and ease of truing. Removal of rounded or broken nipples is easier too using internal spoke head.
27.5" wheels are built 3X lacing pattern with 32 hole, if you want a different pattern please let us know in the comments section at checkout.
NOBL crowns are available in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Turquoise, Pink, and Purple for those wanting to add some extra colour to their rims. These are vinyl die-cuts and are simple to apply. You can add them as an option.
*We inventory all of the spokes and nipples listed in the build package dropdown, so just let us know if you want a unique combination and we'll make it happen. Please add any special notes in the comment box at checkout. For more information on the spoke and nipple build packages see lower down the page.
