Long known for creating awesomely bombproof aluminum rims that are well loved by trail riders and cross country racers alike, WTB has stepped into the carbon ring to throw down with the Ci24 rims. Pairing WTB precision with silky smooth Chris King hubs, the WTB Ci24 TCS Chris King 29in Wheelset is here to rock the trail in style. The Ci24 rims were two years in the making, and those years featured countless tests and tweaks to create a rim that's strong in all the right places. WTB utilizes its 4D Drilling technology, which angles the spokes for even alignment of the nipples and hub flanges to eliminate unnecessary lateral stress. This serves to increase the wheels' longevity and ability to handle load. Additionally, the Ci24's ample 24mm internal rim width provides a solid platform of support for confident shredding and pinch free adventures. These rims incorporate WTB's Tubeless Compatible System TCS profile, which is designed to pair with TCS or UST tires for easy, reliable seating and excellent flat protection. They're also compatible with tubes if you run into trouble out on the trail or just feel like running old school for the day. The Ci24s are laced to a set of Chris King's venerable ISO hubs. They're hand machined in Portland, OR and included in house bearings and Chris King's patented RingDrive system for an unprecedented 72 points of engagement. The rear hub's signature buzz is the soundtrack of responsive efficiency to snap up to speed out of corners.
