Size Chart

In the early design phases of our Traverse Fattie 29, we recognized that the number of aluminum wheels that had the prowess to both shred rowdy descents and to provide the efficiency required of our Northern California testing grounds' relentless climbs were far and few between. We also came to realize that trail riders expect certain features in a proper, send-it-ready wheelset. And for the price, we found that alloy hit many of these expectations, while also keeping enough jingle-jangle in your wallet for a post-ride beverage.

Along with light overall weight, stiffness, and durability, another top priority for the Traverse was ease of use. First off, we got rid of the creaky straight-pull spokes and corrosion-prone alloy nipples. Next up, we landed on 28 J-bend spokes, for front and rear wheels, that are all the same length—making it easy to find replacements if needed. And finally, we engineered a new hub design, with a wider profile and higher flange to aid in overall stiffness.

We took the traditional 19- to 23-millimeter standard and moved it out to what we found worked best in testing—a whopping 30mm “Fattie” width. A wide rim does a variety of things for ride performance—it better supports the tire for increased confidence and grip, it affords you the ability to run lower pressures, and it spreads impact out over a larger surface area to reduce the risk of damage. We also added our Zero Bead hook design to the mix, and this ultimately aids in preventing “burps” during hard cornering, while also making tubeless set up quick and easy.

After developing what we found to be the perfect alloy trail wheels, we went farther down the perfection path, hand-lacing the rims to our own alloy hubs that allow for the same spoke length throughout the entire wheelset, via 28 DT Swiss Revolution J-Bend spokes and Pro Lock nipples. Inside our hubs, you'll find sealed cartridge bearings and DT Swiss 360 rear internals that'll keep you rolling smoothly for miles. We also wanted to ensure that each wheel was built correctly, so we built them by hand.

Each wheelset comes packaged with a SRAM XD-driver and a tubeless valve stem in order to make tubeless set-up a touch easier. Please note that Shimano freehubs are sold separately.

在Traverse Fattie 29的设计初期,我们认识到拥有实力碾压恶劣下坡,并且提供优秀的效率来爬上我们加州北部无情上坡的铝合金轮组数量实在太少。我们也发现林道骑士对合格的,随时应对挑战的轮组有一些固定的期望。考虑到价格,我们发现铝合金能够满足很多期望值,同时给您的钱包里留下足够的钞票来买骑行后的饮品



在研发了我们高性能的铝合金林道轮组之后,我们还在优化的道路上一直向前。采用我们自己的铝合金花鼓手工编制轮组,让整个轮组采用相同长度的辐条,28根DT Swiss Revolution J型辐条和Pro Lock条帽。在我们的花鼓内部,您会找到密封培林和DT Swiss 360后花鼓内件 ,让您长期平顺骑行。我们还要求每一对轮组都精准打造,所以采用手工编制的方式。

每一对轮组包装内含有SRAM XD塔基和真空气嘴,让真空转换更加容易。请注意Shimano塔基需要另行购买。
