|Description||Wider rims are better than narrow rims.
A wider rim delivers better sidewall support so in many cases you can run lower pressures in your rubber. Tires mounted on wider rims donâ€™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. Running lower pressures on varied terrain actually reduces rolling resistance. Wider rims are stronger and stiffer. With increased traction comes increased braking control.
Welcome to the wide world of Ibis wheels and rims, what we refer to as The New Normal
The 928 is a carbon fiber 29er rim with 28mm width that delivers enhanced tire stability and high strength at low weight.
