Nearly twenty years ago, Stan’s NoTubes pioneered the first modern tubeless system. And they’ve never stopped innovating. To develop our new S-Wheels, we combined our expertise in wide asymmetric carbon fiber rims with their patented Bead Socket Technology (BST) to create some of the lightest, strongest, and best performing rims available today.
Stan’s BST allows us to reduce the rim cross section height making our rims more compliant vertically. This not only improves ride quality but helps distribute impacts, giving us EWS performance at trail weights. The new carbon S rims are 9% better at resisting impacts than our already tough rims while also being lighter.
We’re big advocates for wide rims. In fact, we helped pioneer the wide rim revolution back in 2014. Those rims helped inspire the new crop of 2.4”-2.6” tires that are popular today. Wide rims work because they allow the tire beads to sit further apart. That wider footprint provides better tire sidewall support, which means you can run lower air pressure. This improves your traction, braking control, and also reduces rolling resistance over rough terrain.
We build our wheels with readily available parts, so you can source replacements wherever you go. By using standard J-bend spokes and external square nipples, we’ve also made our wheels easy to service.
Our rims are backed by a seven-year warranty. If it’s our fault, we’ll fix them. We also offer a low cost ?“accident replacement” program, just in case you drive your bike into the garage…
