If the presence of fat bike national and world championships is any indication, fat biking is here to stay. And while some may argue the utility of racing these tanks of the biking world, the huge benefit of competition is a new focus on making fat bikes lighter, more nimble, and just overall more fun to ride. The Stan's NoTubes Hugo 52 29in Boost Wheelset steps in as the first fat bike wheel with Stan's tubeless reliability, built to roll fast through everything from freshly groomed trails to fields of fluffy powder.The Hugos utilize Stan's NoTubes tubeless technology with its signature raised center box section and low profile sidewalls that combine to provide a light, fast rolling ride that minimizes pinch flat risk compared to traditional taller walled rims. The raised box sections offer up a widened platform to support the tire and spread out the ground contact patch, which helps distribute the force of big bumps while the low profile side walls sit nearly even with the raised center to further distribute the force and reduce the chances of a high pressure pinch point. This means less time shivering in the snow wrestling with flats and more time frolicking in the powder. As you may have heard, Stan's has built its brand on providing riders with an enjoyable and confident tubeless experience. Its Bead Socket Technology leads the industry in reliable tubeless design, and the Hugos take full advantage of this feature for a resulting fat bike wheel that's easy to inflate and boasts an impeccable seal. For riders holding on to traditional tubes, the Hugos can also be run with tubes and still reap the benefits of their pinch flat reducing technology. Either way, the Hugos provide a sprightly ride to shred the snow. Stan's laces the Hugo rims to its 3. 30 Disc hubs with Sapim Custom Force spokes for a super smooth and solid ride. The Stan's No Tubes Hugo 52 29in Boost Wheelset is compatible with 29 inch Plus and fat bike clincher tires paired with 27mm rim tape ...
