World premiere (maybe) – mounted Maxxis Ikon 3C/EXO – 29 x 2.2 TR tires

Here is something else that we are cooking up, tubeless compatible full carbon MTB 29er clincher wheels. They do not have a name yet, but we will be releasing them shortly. After testing them and their predecessors across several countries for over one year we are confident that these wheels will deliver excellent performance.

They are 28.5mm wide, 26mm deep and come in at 1610g with SRAM XX1 compatible hub body. With a 9/10s body the weight is 1625g

Maxxis Ikon 29er Tubeless Ready (TR) tires on Velocite 29er carbon clincher tubeless wheels

We previously used them with Maxxis Ardent UST tires, without a sealant, and successfully mounted WTB Nano 29er tire (needs sealant) and today the Maxxis Ikon 3C/EXO – 29 x 2.2 TR (tubeless ready) inflated with some help from soapy water and are holding air nicely without sealant so far. Of course before any real use we recommend adding sealant as that is half the point of running tubeless in the first place.
