These wheels were hand-built at Fanatik by a professional wheel builder and have been triple-checked for tension. All of our hand-built wheels are assembled using Linseed Oil which helps the wheels stay true. Our wheels are shipped in a custom wheel box, insuring they will arrive to you safe-and-sound.
Ibis' new carbon rim design features a lower cross section height for increased impact performance. The lower 19.5mm section height makes the wheel better able to distribute the loads of localized impacts from rock strikes or hard landings.
The 735 is ideal for lighter trail bikes that see more XC time, and also great for riders looking to save as much weight as possible, while taking advantages of the features that wide rims bring you.
Also, Ibis is introducing a new hybrid carbon fiber layup, strategically combining layers of a new, high-toughness carbon/epoxy prepreg with their original carbon composite, increasing both ultimate strength and impact durability. This, combined with the asymmetric rim design that features 2.5mm of offset, allows for higher spoke tensions that are nearly equal from one side of the wheel to the other. As a result of all this, the 735 nets a 30% increase in impact strength yet a 7.5% decrease in weight, compared to Ibis previous rims.
Chris King hubs have a well-earned reputation in the marketplace. Whether for their long-wearing durability or their ease of service, King hubs are a favorite of shop mechanics and tech editors the world over. But strength and durability do not come at a performance cost. King hubs are fast as any hub in the game. Even with a legendary sealing system that affords a 5-year warranty in all conditions, King hubs have rolled to numerous professional wins on and off road.
Inside the hubshells, the business transaction of putting your power to work, is where you'll find what matter most. Yes, everyone loves the colors, but it's their bearings, axles and engagement system that have earned the trust of discerning cyclists. King makes their own bearings in-house, each hand-checked for precision and built with a robust sealing system. Best of all? Service them yourself! Strong, constant diameter axles run through the bearings to the frame and fork dropouts for precise handling and stiffness under power.
Every King rear hub is powered by their patented RingDrive™ engagement system. This unique design offers instant, positive engagement that is over three times quicker than a standard 24-tooth pawl-type freehub. RingDrive™ uses 72 engagement teeth on stainless steel drive and driven rings for a system that is capable of handling torque load of over 800 ft/lbs.
