Arc Rim -
With a redesigned rim profile, the new ARC Offset rims utilize an asymmetrical design to optimize spoke tension balance, wheel durability and wheel stiffness. New 6069 Alloy provides a superior strength to weight ratio over our previous generation of ARC, significantly improving toughness. And now with our new 30mm wide Heavy Duty rim at 22mm deep, we have a rim size and width option for every tire and every riding style. Our tubeless ready bead and offest design mean these rims are ready to hit any trail with confidence. Complete your custom setup with color-matching decals available in eight color options. Decal kits sold separately.
Sizes from 25mm to 40mm internal width.
Offset nipple bed for improved spoke tension balance and wheel strength/stiffness.
Tubeless ready, strong tire retention bead.

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 a 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 favorite - 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, 29ers are Built 2X, due to the 2X lacing pattern increases stiffness in the wheel that is needed on a 29er and not so pessary on a 27.5
