MTB Rims - Strength and Weight
Mountain bike rims revolve around 2 key issues: high strength at the lowest possible weight. If you want to replace your broken rim with a new one or upgrade your wheels with higher quality rims, you've come to the right place. In addition to choosing the right size (26, 27.5 or 29 inches), mountain bikers should of course also pay attention to the type of brake they use, since disc brakes require different rims than rim brakes. The width of the tires and compatibility with tubeless tires must also be taken into account. Eyeleted spoke holes provide extra strength and stiffness, as they allow a much higher spoke tension.
