Optimus Race Carbon Trail Wheels


Responsive and Dynamic.

The Optimus Race Carbon Trail Wheels are meticulously designed for lightweight trail bikes. They deliver a nimble and dynamic feel, perfect for epic full-day adventures, and boast exceptional durability for aggressive trail riding.

The 28mm inside-width rims optimize trail tire profiles for reduced rolling resistance and ensure ample lateral stability and precision. Double-butted spokes and alloy nipples make for a controlled, lively ride feel. Hookless flanges provide rock-solid tubeless security and resistance to damage from impacts.

The Race SL hub is equipped with a 4-pawl, 3° engagement freehub to ensure rapid engagement, essential for quick accelerations on changing terrains. A captive thread endcap means simple tool-free disassembly, simplifying maintenance tasks.

The carbon rims come with e*thirteen's trusted Lifetime Carbon Rim Warranty so you can push your limits and ride with confidence.
