STAN’S FLOW EX3 RIMS R1 895, twowheelstrading.co.za
Wide rims work – that’s non-debatable. The extra width opens up the tyre tread and gives you better traction. The tyre is also more stable on the rim, which allows you to run lower pressures. These stiff, tough rims made from 6069 aluminium alloy are a sweet upgrade for your trail bike. The 29mm internal width is optimised for 2.35–2.8” tyres, and the 32-hole construction ensures you’ll end up with bomb-proof wheels. Fit and forget.
