Ibis 741 27.5"/650B Carbon Wheelset 32H 15/142X12mm
Welcome to the wide world of Ibis wheels and rims, what we refer to as The New Normal and The New Wide.
The 741 carbon fibre 27.5 and 29er rims with monster 41mm widths deliver super tyre stability even with large tires at low pressure.
- A wider rim delivers better sidewall support so in many cases you can run lower pressures in your rubber.
- Tyres mounted on wider rims don’t burp as easily.
- Lower pressures, even a pound or two, do several beneficial things, including increasing the contact patch, which results in better traction.
- Running lower pressures on varied terrain actually reduces rolling resistance.
- Wider rims are stronger and stiffer.
- With increased traction comes increased braking control.
