The mark of true innovation can only be achieved through the relentless pursuit of perfection. At Box Components, we accept and acknowledge that the path to enlightenment is not without sacrifice and is reached only after years of research, planning and design. It is with this frame of mind and under this backdrop that we set forth to produce a new generation of advanced trail rims and wheels.
Current carbon production methodology and modern wheel manufacturing have allowed rim designers to incorporate new changes that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. One such update, made possible by the near ubiquitous nature of tubeless rims and wide tires, is the hookless rim. Hookless designs are suitable for rims that are supporting wide tires at low to medium tire pressures, while hooked rims remain the best option for rims supporting medium to high pressure tires.
Box Components offers 3 rim models:
Trail 33 - 33 Outside, 26 Inside hooked symmetrical rim
Trail 36 - 36 Outside, 30 Inside hookless asymmetrical rim
Trail 41 - 41 Outside, 35 Inside hookless asymmetrical rim
Several factors determine which rim is best suited to each application, but chiefly it is the desired tire size. Other factors are operating pressures and frame limitations.
