The XC Rim
Australian Dollars (free shipping within Australia)
Improved ride feel
The Black Crow Carbon XC carbon rim is designed to give you the winning edge. The lightweight rims and power transferring stiffness provide the speed and precision for serious XC racing or long days in the saddle training and light trail riding.
25mm internal, UST ready
It has a 25mm internal width and UST design so no need to wrestle with rim tape ever again.
The asymmetric rim profile allows for more even spoke tension to produce a stiffer wheel with lightweight spokes.
While light weight helps to win races, you must be able to finish the race. So by using a combination of T1000 and T700 carbon, the rim is both very strong and very light (only ~315g).
Each rim is supplied with black brass nipples already preinstalled in each spoke hole ready to lace.
We recommend brass over aluminium nipples for the durability and barely 20g weight difference per wheel makes them a no brainer for wheelset reliability and longevity.
With every purchase we supply a free magnet and steel nipple insert tool to install any nipples you like through the valve hole (12mm max nipple length).
Lifetime warranty with no BS
The XC Black Crow Carbon rim has a lifetime free replacement warranty for the original owner and a transferable crash replacement warranty to consecutive owners if you decide to sell them.
24 hour warranty turn-around
If you manage to crack a rim, no worries, no BS, no confusing process just get in touch pay the postage for a replacement rim and it’ll be immediately sent straight out from Australian stock. No long lead times!
We prioritise any warranty work and make it the most important job in the shop. We aim to have all warranties dealt with within 24 hours because we know how much it sucks to not ride your bike.
