FeaturesI-BEAM The I-Beam, found exclusively on STRYKER Wheels and LaserDisc series rims, was pioneered by WTB in 1994. This distinctive, centrally located vertical support counteracts spoke loads and provides torsional rigidity. UNBENDIUM BULGE An additional band of aluminum added to the rim?s sidewall that improves torsional, radial and lateral strength. This rib, which replaces the braking surface, provides an impressive boost in rigidity with a negligible difference in weight. This WTB innovation is found exclusively on STRYKER Wheels and LaserDisc series rims. TCS The tubeless compatible TCS rim profile is especially designed for TCS or UST tires and is also compatible with tube type tires when used with tubes. TCS rim profiles feature superior tire retention capabilities. When mounting a TCS or UST tire on a TCS rim profile very little initial air pressure force is required to inflate tire. In most cases a small mini hand pump will provide ample air flow for inflation. THE WTB DIFFERENCE Because WTB designs both tires and rims, we can focus on a consistent interface between the two. While all mountain bike tires are based around an established bead seat diameter (559-millimeter for 26-inch tires and 622-millimeters for 29er tires) you?ll find a wide variance in many brands. Some brands of tires fit rims so tightly that tools are necessary for installation, while others have a looser fit. WTB rims and tires feature a consistent interface for easy installation. TCS rim profile 12 POINT ENGAGEMENT Each LaserDisc rear hub features a cold-forged, fully machined aluminum hub shell and alloy freehub. Power transfer is driven through six, double sided stainless pawls, totaling 12 points of engagement. SEALED CARTRIDGE BEARINGS LaserDisc rear hubs roll on four sealed cartridge bearings and front hubs utilize two sealed cartridge bearings. All bearings are stainless steel. EASILY ADJUSTABLE Bearing preload is easily adjustable on LaserDisc Lite rear hubs through the adjustment nut and locknut. WTB RIM STRIPS Proprietary WTB rubber rim strips are 11-millimeters in width and are designed to compliment GBS Equipped rims. We recommend using these strips with any WTB rim, as wider rim strips can interfere with the tire’s bead seat. WTB Tubeless Valve New Taper Design allows for optimal fit on a wide variety of rim. Removable valve core for easy cleaning and un interrupted air flow. WTB Tubeless RIm Tape Light, strong, and extra sticky for durable long lasting leakproof performance. Swell-Bow WTB spokes are better by design. At the J-bend—the most likely point for the average spoke to break—these spokes measure 2.2-millimeters in cross-section. We call this proprietary feature Swell-Bow. These thicker elbows fit perfectly into the hub, providing a stiffer, snug fit. The length between the J-bend and the head is critical. Achieving a snug fit increases strength because stress is spread throughout the form fit. SPOKE NIPPLES LaserDisc Cross Country and LaserDisc Trail wheels utilize alloy nipples to save weight over the traditional brass variety. Although the brass nipples featured on LaserDisc FR and LaserDisc DH wheels are more durable, they are up to 20-grams heavier per wheel. Our new Stryker wheelset uses Sanvic triple butted 3 mm bladed spokes.
