Introducing the Raptor
With new bikes, new wheel sizes, and new options, every rider can have the perfect ride around their local terrain. More and more people are seeing the benefits of larger tires, and plus-size (3-inch) tires are finding a niche between fat bikes and skinny 2 - 2.5” mountain bike tires. Since we can’t seem to do anything half way, we wanted to bring out the widest, lightest, and most durable all-carbon rim for your 27.5+ rig – the Raptor.
With 27.5+ here to stay we have naturally designed a brand new rim especially for this size. With a width of 45 millimeters, and an astounding rim weight of 430 grams, the Raptor will shock you with its sustainable speed and acceleration. This light but incredibly strong rim is complimented perfectly by the ultra slick Industry Nine hubs and HED in-house hand build.
No longer must your plus-sized bike be heavy, slow, and lumbering – let the Raptor inject some True Speed into your trail ride.
