Atomik Carbon 29 Wide XC Wheelset


The Atomik Carbon Wide XC was engineered to be the weapon of choice for aggressive XC riders. The Wide XC is light enough to get you up, strong enough to never let you down. Whether it’s an after-work loop, local short course or an epic 12-hour endurance event, this rim"s for you. We took hookless rim design to the next level. We stretched it to 33-millimeters wide with an interior width of 26 millimeters. Traditional bead hooks “pinch” tires in, creating a rounded footprint. Lack of a traditional bead hook allows tire sidewalls to form an optimal interface with the rim channel, resulting in a more stable and surefooted point of contact on the trail that maximizes cornering and handling characteristics without risk of “burping” or “rolling.” Directional drilling aids in alleviating the additional stress placed on the nipple/spoke bed interface.
