Ibis 742 Carbon 27.5" Boost Front Wheel
The Ibis 742's have it all (predecessor to the S35). At Ibis they're big advocates for wide rims. In fact, they 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.
Stan's BST allows for a reduced rim cross section height making the 742 rims more compliant vertically. This not only improves ride quality but helps distribute impacts, giving us EWS performance at trail weights.
Ibis wheels are built with readily available parts, so you can source replacements wherever you go. By using standard J-bend spokes and external square nipples, 742 wheels are easy to service.
