Fatback Wide Ride carbon wheelset by Knight Composites

Based on 1 review

Lightweight, strong, easy tubeless set up and great at low air pressure. These wheels do it all, you shouldn't have to compromise on any of these on a premium product like the Wide Ride wheels. Available with two different hub configurations, the light weight of DT Swiss or the amazing cold weather performance and fast engagement of the Fatback Alaska Edition hubs. 

When starting this project we decided to partner with Knight Composites, one of the leaders in carbon rim technology, who also happens to be in the same town as our secondary location in Bend Oregon. The crew at Knight Composites is no stranger to riding fat bikes, so we approached them to collaborate on this rim. Using our knowledge of fat bike rim requirements along with their carbon capabilities, we got right to work.

Pick up a set of these to upgrade any fat bike, and make it a year round shredder.

I combined these with the Fatback SL Alaska Edition hubs - super light and responsive. A noticeable upgrade and performance improvement to my Fatbike!
