We've taken the TSRr profile and reduced the sidewall thickness from 3mm to 2.5mm. This, along with an improved carbon layup, gives SL riders far better distribution of force on impact. A 28mm internal width provides the best profile for trail bike tires up to 2.4" wide.
Like all e*thirteen carbon rims, the SL is hookless and laced to double-butted, j-bend spokes with alloy nipples and washers.
We knew making a carbon rim that would meet the demands of the EWS Circuit and United Ride Team would be a tall order, so we took it upon ourselves to smash every rim we could get our hands on and see what we could learn.
Two years of testing, and an expensive pile of scrap later, we're proud to unveil a rim that is more durable than aluminium, impressively lightweight and offers precise steering response. To back it all up, we offer a lifetime warranty. The TRSr rim is not just a surface for coloured decals that match your frame (although we did that too).
