The 2020 TR32 wheelsets use front and rear-specific rims, each with a tailored layup to meet the needs of the unique forces of the front/rear wheels. They have a ‘sine wave’ shape to aid inside stiffness which is embedded into the moulds. Since they are intended for lighter wheel builds, they come in 28h only. The lower profile, sidewall reinforcement, nipple bed design, new mould and profile shape have allowed us to combine everything we loved about our previous XC and Trail rims and combine them into one. The TR32 rim set matches the weight of a pair of our old narrower TR28 rims while maintaining the versatility and durability of our beloved TR33’s.
When designing our new TR32 rims, we wanted to answer one question: What would the perfect BC Bike race rim look like? Surely if a rim could handle 7 gruelling stages across BC’s varied terrain it would be the ultimate XC/Trail rim. We’re based out of British Columbia, so when we think of “XC” it means something a bit different. “Cross country” trails are typically more technically demanding than the average and there’s no place for flimsy parts. The TR32 was designed with this in mind.
Light, svelte and purpose-built. The TR32 is right at home on short-travel XC and Trail bikes. Offering snappy acceleration and razor-sharp handling, the TR32 will take you uphill quickly and provide confident control when railing the descents. Ideally suited for lighter trail tires and XC race tires, the TR32 offers the right amount of compliance to tame the roughest rock gardens. The lighter design also makes it well suited for heavy-duty gravel and bike packing applications.
If you manage to break your rims while riding your bike, we will send you a replacement rim at no charge and you will just have to pay the shipping cost. If you damage your rims because of non-riding circumstances like melting your rims because it was sitting too close to your vehicle’s exhaust on a road trip, we’ll give you 50% off a replacement. This coverage lasts indefinitely to the original purchaser.
