Wheels MTB rims / wheel rims / BMX wheels

The rims for the cycling wheels are the inner ring of the wheel. The tires are used to be made with resistant materials and as light as possible such as aluminum or carbon, and as it is logical to use different measures depending on the wheel to which they are directed. Whether for mountain bikes with wheels of 26 ", .5" or 29". Or for road bikes with wheels of 700 * 23 mostly.

The rims are the place where the spokes of the bicycle are inserted reason why they must withstand a great pressure and their resistance must be high. Bicycles that do not use disc brakes use the surface of the rim so that the pads exert pressure on it and can be stopped. For this reason, these tires incorporate the "braking area".

The braking area can be made of aluminum or carbon. The ones that are made with aluminium have been showing their great performance and good braking for years. Those that incorporate the carbon braking track took longer to achieve good performance but thanks to research and discovery of new compounds for brake pads. At present they enjoy a great performance combined with the lightness that contributes the carbon they manage to make a gap between the cyclists.

Another of the highlights of the rim is in the profile.

Among the different profiles that we can find highlight the following Rims:

  • Classic Profile: They seek the greatest stiffness and resistance to withstand the pressure of the spokes. They are used in modalities that require great resistance and where aerodynamics do not play a relevant role.
  • V-profile: They are the first ones looking to prioritize the aerodynamic slope. By increasing the profile it was able to improve the resistance to the air but at the end of the point caused turbulence. Profile with straight walls: they represent the following evolution with respect to the "V". The stability of the wheel was improved and greater stiffness was achieved.
  • Toroidal profile: It represented the greatest progress in aerodynamic profiles. It was achieved that at higher air velocity better response was obtained and was able to respond better to the side wind.
  • Fullface toroidal profile: It is able to offer the highest aerodynamic capacity by integrating the tyre to the rim. This way even with the side wind you get a great control and efficiency. The evolution of tires has been constant over the last few years and the trend continues to evolve the profile and tire materials to achieve perfection.
