Hookless & Medium Hook & Clincher
All mtb carbon rims have a hookless bead design.
Hookless rims have a solid round head that allows the carbon fibers to stack smoothly and maximize strength.
This is ideal for off-road rims to handle the various impacts of rocks and forests. For different MTB terrains, our engineering team customizes the hookless bead structure accordingly. These adjustments include thickness, shape, height, etc.
As more and more tubeless tires are mounted on Mtb wheels, the tire pressure is getting lower and lower. This is another friendly improvement for hookless design in bicycle rims. As a manufacturer, we can improve the strength and shock resistance of MTB rims without giving riders flat tire problems.
Why do we develop the middle hook?
It was originally developed for on-road and off-road disc brake road carbon wheels. The focus of the product is very similar to the MTB rim: tubeless, wider tires, lower pressure, lighter and more shock resistant.
It is a mix of on-road and off-road.
The mid-hook design is designed for this purpose.
It adopts the hookless and tubeless design of off-road wheels, but retains the ability to use tubes.
However, this design is more tubeless and the recommended maximum tire pressure is 90 PSI.
We retain the traditional clincher design on all of our rim brake rims.
Because the tire pressure is very high and there are still many riders who use clincher tires with tubes. And we make all rim brakes carbon rimss wider and tubeless compatible.
