1
Open-Cavity Design
Open-cavity rim profile eliminates unnecessary weight while also reducing radial stiffness to create a smoother ride. Open-cavity rims are the top choice of drop bar and XC riders wanting to minimize weight while also improving rim compliance for less overall body fatigue at the end of a long day.

Dependable 6069 Alloy
Many years of rim development and success have confirmed 6069 to be the perfect aluminum alloy blend for both drop bar and mountain bike rims. Our extensive testing shows other 6000-series alloy to be less ding-resistant, while stiffer 7000-series alloys result in a harsher ride feel and tend to increase pinch flats.

4D Angled Spoke Holes
Drilling spoke holes at an angle eliminates binding and lateral loading of the spoke and nipple interface. It also allows spoke tension to be more evenly dispersed on the nipple rather than loading one side more than the other. Allowing the spoke to depart the rim at a natural angle increases the longterm durability of both the spoke and nipple.
4
TCS Solid Strip
Durable nylon strip that lies between the rim and tubeless tape to prevent tubeless tape from pushing into the spoke holes and ensures a smooth interface between the tire and rim. The smooth surface makes it easier to mount a tire by preventing air from escaping around the bead at each indent during inflation. Solid Strip also protects the airtight system from puncture in the case of a broken spoke.

21mm inner rim width
Road and commuter bikes with narrow tires of 30mm or less are best paired with a 21mm inner rim width. KOM Light rims are also best suited for this usage because of their balance of lightweight performance and proven dependability. Choosing wider rims for use with tires narrower than 30mm will provide unnecessary exposure to the sidewall of the tire.
TCS (Tubeless Compatible System)
TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) is our standardized tubeless system designed to meet international ETRTO standards and deliver unbeatable tubeless performance and reliability. TCS components reduce weight, increase traction, virtually eliminate flats and has established itself as the most dependable tubeless system available. Our TCS system includes tires, rims, tape, sealant and valves to provide a comprehensive package of unrivaled tubeless performance and reliability.
