40M 27.5+ Carbon Mountain Plus Wheelset

from 1,395.00

The 40M is  a "plus" wheelset designed for trail use. We use a 30mm deep, 40mm wide, 35mm internal width that is optimized for a 2.8 to 3.0 wide tire. We have found that 2.8 inch tires are the sweet spot for "27.5 plus", as wider than that and your handling becomes more like that of fat bike, with obvious steering push. We raced a lot of cross country events on the 40M with 2.8 wide tires on a rigid single speed 29r and can attest to the noticeably faster rolling and fantastic ride and grip.  The difference between 29r wheels with a 2.2 tire and the 27.5+ with a light 2.8 is pretty remarkable. The 40M make a great second wheelset for most 29r bikes capable of fitting a 2.35 tire. That should allow adequate clearance for a 2.8 wide tire in 27.5+, and we can help you work through the details. 

Our rims have a tubeless specific rim profile with a deep center channel and a "locking" bead shelf for use with any sealant based tubeless system (they work fine with tubes as well). The MTB rims are hookless for great impact durability. We use a low profile hookless design, rated to 60PSI max, that combats burping at low pressure by allowing the tire casing to move and flex at the bead interface.  

All our wheels are carefully built by hand with Sapim spokes to strict run out and tension specs to ensure a dependable wheel.
