The S35 Aluminium Rim is an awesome, all-around rim with an unbeatable value. When Ibis set out to improve their previous wheels, one of their goals was to make them even lighter and stronger. That wasn’t easy. To do it, they needed to reduce the height of the beadwalls. The shorter the beadwalls are, the less likely they are to bend and break.
Stan’s already uses this technology in their existing product line, so Ibis reached out and asked if they could collaborate. The new S-wheels use Stan's patented BST technology, which helps reduce the beadwall heights while optimizing tire fit and mounting.
The S35 Aluminum Rims feature an asymmetric design. An asymmetric rim means that instead of the spoke holes being drilled through the center of the rim, they’re slightly offset. Doing this allows for the improvement of the bracing angle of the spokes. Because Ibisrims are so wide they are more offset than normal. That larger offset allows both sides of the wheel to be tensioned nearly equally, which results in a stronger and more durable wheelset.
Ibis rims are backed by an impressive seven-year warranty. If it’s their fault, they'll fix them.
