Cross country isn’t what it used to be. Courses are becoming more technical and more demanding on rider and equipment. The TR32 was designed to handle all of this with poise and confidence enroute to the top step of the podium.

The 2020 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. 

The Details

Front Specs

  • 28h
  • 29″ only
  • 360g
  • ERD: 600.5

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

  • 28h
  • 29″ only
  • 390g
  • ERD: 600.5

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
  • 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
