Custom Nobl TR32 wheels, handbuilt in Colorado, with your choice of hubs from Chris King, DT Swiss, Hope, Industry Nine, Onyx, Project 321, Shimano or White Industries.
The 2020 TR32 wheelsets use front and rear specific rims, each with a tailored layup to meet the needs of the unique forces the front/rear wheels. They have a ‘sine wave’ shape to aid in side stiffness which is embedded into the molds. Since they are intended for lighter wheel builds, they come in 28h only. The lower profile, sidewall reinforcement, nipple bed design, new mold 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.
The front rim has the same side stiffness but is about 25% less vertically stiff compared to the rear rim. The slightly wider 27mm internal width to suit a higher volume tire. It’s also lighter weight at just 360g per rim
The 390g rear rim is reinforced with thicker 3mm hookless “lips” and has more stiffness compared to the front rim which helps to create a more balanced feel between the front and rear wheels. The 26mm internal width works great for 2.2”-2.5” tires.
