TR32 wheelsets use front and rear specific rims, each with a tailored layup to meet the needs of the unique forces the front/rear wheels. They have a ‘sine wave’ shape to aid in side stiffness which is embedded into the molds. Since they are intended for lighter wheel builds, they come in 28h only. The lower profile, sidewall reinforcement, nipple bed design, new mold and profile shape have allowed us to combine everything we loved about our previous XC and Trail rims and combine them into one. The TR32 rim set, matches the weight of a pair of our old narrower TR28 rims while maintaining the versatility and durability of our beloved TR33’s.

Front Specs

Front Weight – 29″ 360g
Asymmetric Offset: 2mm

The front rim has the same side stiffness but is about 25% less vertically stiff compared to the rear rim. The slightly wider 27mm internal width to suit a higher volume tire. It’s also lighter weight at just 360g per rim.


Rear Specs

Rear Weight – 29″ 390g
Asymmetric Offset: 2mm

The 390g rear rim is reinforced with thicker 3mm hookless “lips” and has more stiffness compared to the front rim which helps to create a more balanced feel between the front and rear wheels. The 26mm internal width works great for 2.2”-2.5” tires.

Intended Use

When designing our new TR32 rims, we wanted to answer one question: What would the perfect BC Bike race rim look like? Surely if a rim could handle 7 grueling stages across BC’s varied terrain it would be the ultimate XC/Trail rim. We’re based out of British Columbia, so when we think of “XC” it means something a bit different. “Cross country” trails are typically more technically demanding than the average and there’s no place for flimsy parts. The TR32 was designed with this in mind.

  • Cross Country
  • All Mountain / Enduro
  • Gravel

Handling Characteristics

Light, svelte and purpose built. The TR32 is right at home on short travel XC and Trail bikes. Offering snappy acceleration and razor sharp handling, the TR32 will take you up hill quickly and provide confident control when railing the descents. Ideally suited for lighter trail tires and XC race tires, the TR32 offers the right amount of compliance to tame the roughest rock gardens. The lighter design also makes it well suited for heavy duty gravel and bike packing applications.

  • Impact Strength
  • Lateral Stiffness
  • Vertical Stiffness

Featured Upgrade: BERD

Upgrade your next set of TR32 wheels with Berd spokes, to turn them into a Pro marathon race wheelset. Berd spokes are made from an advanced polymer called Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). UHMWPE has 12 times the strength-to-weight ratio of steel and floats on water. This means that you can enjoy substantial weight savings, when your wheelset is laced using these spokes. We find the ride quality is slightly less stiff than some conventional spokes, so road riders desiring a high amount of wheel stiffness may prefer steel spokes. Berd spokes are available in black, white or custom colors. Order custom colored Berd spokes by downloading our custom Berd form and emailing it to the form is available in 28h.

*We modify all J-bend hub shells for Berd, however we do not modify straight pull. For modified hub shells, the hub shell warranty is void.

To learn more about Berd visit our FAQ.

Lifetime Warranty

If you manage to break your rims while riding your bike, we will send you a replacement rim at no charge and you will just have to pay the shipping cost. If you damage your rims because of non-riding circumstances like melting your rims because it was sitting too close to your vehicle’s exhaust on a road trip, we’ll give you 50% off a replacement. This coverage lasts indefinitely to the original purchaser.

NOBL Athlete Rides TR32 Wheelset

TR32 Reviews

“Picked the TR32’s up to pair with my SantaCruz Tallboy. These wheels have completely changed my riding and make me want to mountain bike all the time. The experience started great as the wheels are fully customizable. After making the order, I gave the company a call to make sure I was making the correct decision and they talked me through all my decisions. I could not be happier with this purchase. Definitely consider these if you are in the “down country” market. These are Fast, Light, & Strong. You really can have it all.”

“The biggest thing I’ve noticed is the acceleration coming out of turns and berms. The wheels seem to snap me back into the trail and I’m pedaling sooner coming out of a hard turn. I also find that I’m braking less heading into turns and techy sections because I have a bit more confidence.”

“I am very impressed with the build quality and even more impressed with the turnaround time from order to riding. I placed an order for a custom wheel build on Monday and was riding Friday evening, two thousand miles away. I opted and paid extra for an urgent wheel build, but wow! Customer service during this process was great too. The hub color I wanted was on backorder from the manufacturer and I was contacted immediately, then with a few back and forth messages to discuss options, they built the wheels and I was notified when they were complete.”

“These wheels are sweet. Light enough for XC racing but more than durable enough for trail riding and full on big adventures. Tires mounted tubeless easily and inflated with a standard floor pump. Ride is smooth. Stiff in the corners but not over stiff to make them harsh on the choppy stuff. Highly recommended. Nobl’s customer service is beyond fantastic. They are all riders themselves and just want to get you on the right set of wheels. Use the chat function on the website to ask any questions that you have..”

“I have received my new wheels. Of course, they are perfect and beautiful. I put 50 miles on Friday, hoping for about 40 more today. Can’t say enough about the Onyx hubs. The advice and customer service right through to delivery was just awesome. The build is perfect- spoke tension is just right. Not too soft not too snappy.”
