Ibis 941 Carbon Wheelset

Ibis’ carbon fiber 941 29” wheelset is the standard in monster-wide rim widths at 41mm, equating to superior tire stability even with large tires and at low pressures. IMT highly recommends the DT Swiss 350 rear hub option due to its 54-tooth ratchet, so you get a quick 6º engagement in a super strong, reliable hub.

As for why you should go wide, please read “A Brief History of Wide Rims” to your right, but the long and the short of it is that a wider rim delivers better sidewall support leading to lower tire pressures (or “tyre pressure” for you Brits). Tires mounted on wider rims don’t burp as easily. Lower pressures, even a pound or two, do several beneficial things, including increasing the contact patch, which results in better traction, and with increased traction comes more braking control. Furthermore, new studies show that running lower pressures on varied terrain actually reduces rolling resistance, and just to drive all of the advantages home, wider rims are stronger and stiffer. How’s that for a win win win?

Dramatically increased traction
Reduced rolling resistance
Less tubeless ‘burping’
Stiffer, stronger wheel
lighter than most narrow aluminum rims
Better braking control
Improved flat protection
More predictable feel
You can run a lighter tire with similar durability
Hookless bead rims are far stronger
Easy to mount tubeless with just a floor pump
