A modern 650B rim with classic appearance. The shape is very attractive: a classic box with a rounded top to distribute the stresses imparted by spoke tension. The inside profile is designed for tubeless compatibility. Like all tubeless rims, it can be used with inner tubes, too.
The Compass team has put these rims through their paces on dirt and paved roads without issue. We appreciate the excellent tubeless well design that allows our tires to seat properly every time.
Available in 28, 32 or 36 hole drillings. Silver anodized finish with stainless eyelets.
Made in Taiwan.
Important: Use these “tubless-compatible” rims with tubeless tape only, even if you install inner tubes. Tubeless rim tape is thin and slippery, allowing the tires to slide onto the shelf that forms the bead seat. (Cloth and other traditional tapes are too thick and have too much friction, so the tire beads will not slide across the ridge that separates the well from the shelf on these rims.)
