Description

In the early design phases of our Traverse Fattie 650b with a 148 rear for Boost spacing we recognized that the number of aluminium wheels that had the prowess to both shred rowdy descents and to provide the efficiency required of our Northern California testing grounds' relentless climbs were far and few between. We also came to realize that trail riders expect certain features in a proper send-it-ready wheelset and for the price we found that alloy hit many of these expectations while also keeping enough jingle-jangle in your wallet for a post-ride beverage.

Let's talk about those expectations. They include everything from the ability to stay true after launching off drops to being light enough to efficiently pedal to the top of a climb�and they all begin with the rim. In the search for a new approach to rim design our engineers took a 45-millimeter-wide fat bike rim and began testing modern sized 2.3- to 2.4-inch tyres on it to see what if any benefits could be found. And while 45mm ended up being too wide they were amazed at the benefits provided by increasing the rim width.

From there we took the traditional 19- to 23-millimeter standard and moved it out to what we found worked best in testing�a whopping 29mm �Fattie width. A wide rim does a variety of things for ride performance�it better supports the tyre for increased confidence and grip and it affords you the ability to run lower pressures to aid in the aforementioned as well as spreading impact out over a larger surface area to reduce the risk of damage during impact.
