CZR i30 Carbon Rim
CZR i30 rims were designed to handle it all, which is why they feature a strategically reinforced carbon layup, 5mm of asymmetric spoke offset, reinforced spoke beds, a hookless bead and Solid Strip integration. The enduro-approved 30mm inner rim width optimizes the tire volume and profile of 2.4-2.6" tires, which allows riders to run lower tire pressures which translates to improved traction and comfort.
Solid Strip & TCS Tape
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.
3-cross lacing and brass nipples
Too many companies are trying to save weight by offering "enduro" wheels with 2-cross lacing patterns and inadequate alloy nipples. While those are suitable for XC and light trail usage, there's no replacement for the longterm reliability of a 3-cross lacing pattern with brass nipples holding it all together.
Industry Nine Hydra Hub
Hydra Classic mountain hubs feature Industry Nine's ultrafast 0.52° engagement and minimalistic weights. We're also a fan of Industry Nine hubs because they can be serviced without any proprietary tools, which is something we've always advocated for. Every step of design, engineering, manufacturing and assembly is done at Industry Nine's Asheville, NC machine shop. E-bike Class 1 compatible.
TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) is our industry-leading tubeless rim/tire system designed to international ETRTO and ISO standards.
WTB carbon components are designed to provide a perfect blend of stiffness and compliance while also proving to be nearly indestructible.
Additional carbon at each spoke bed improves overall rim strength and durability while also minimizing weight in areas where less strength, and therefore material, is needed.
Spoke holes are drilled at an angle to match the natural spoke path between a rim and hub. Eliminates binding and lateral loading of the nipples to increase wheel durability.
Asymmetrically offset spoke holes create a stronger wheel by placing the holes more in line with the center of the hub and more evenly distributing spoke tension.
Sloped rim valley allows the bead of the tire to easily and smoothly move into place during installation and inflation.
Installed between the rim and tubeless tape to prevent tape from sagging at each spoke hole and make tire inflation easier while also preventing puncture from a broken spoke.
**Wheel weights include the Solid Strip, tubeless tape and valve installed on each wheel.
Why Choose CZR i30?
CZR i30 carbon wheels are for riders who demand a carbon wheel that won't let them down. CZR i30 wheels were designed to handle it all, which is why they feature a strategically fortified carbon layup, reinforced spoke beds, and are hand-built using double-butted spokes and brass nipples to establish themselves as wheels the most dependable carbon wheels on the market. We even sent the rims to an unbiased third-party lab to conduct destructive testing against what we considered to be the best carbon rims available during CZR development. In the end, our CZR i30 rims proved to be 10% more impact resistant than their direct competition. Plus, they're covered for life with our Ride With Confidence Guarantee.

Read The FAQs
HOW DOES RIM WIDTH AFFECT TIRE VOLUME AND PROFILE?
Wider rims will cause a tire to also have a wider width, with more air volume within the tire and a flatter tire tread profile than designed for. As a general rule of thumb, a 2mm increase or decrease of inner rim width will result in a tire section width increase or decrease of 1mm. For example, our Nano 40 tire has a tire section width of 40mm on a 21mm inner rim width, however it will have a tire section width of 41mm on a 23mm inner rim width.
ARE CZR WHEELS WITH INDUSTRY NINE HUBS COVERED BY WTB'S RIDE WITH CONFIDENCE GUARANTEE?
ABSOLUTELY! If you purchase a wheel with CZR carbon rims, you're covered, regardless of what hubs the wheels were purchased with. Ride with Confidence knowing that your CZR carbon rims are covered for life!
WHY DO CZR i23 WHEELS HAVE A HOOKED BEAD WHILE CZR i30 ARE HOOKLESS?
CZR i23 rims feature a hooked bead because doing so provides a more dependable connection between the tire and rim when running a tire at the higher air pressures that are common with adventure road and gravel riding. CZR i30 rims feature a hookless bead because the smooth bead surface allows for more material to be used in an area when strength is incredibly important. Both CZR i23 and CZR i30 rims are compatible with any tires that comply with ETRTO standards.
ARE THERE TRICKS TO INSTALLING A TIRE ON AN ASYMMETRICAL RIM?
Asymmetrical rims feature a "short" and "long" side. It is helpful to always mount both sides of the tire onto the rim on the "short side" of the rim. The short side of the rim provides the shortest distance between the rim leg/bead and the valley of the rim. Once the first tire bead is completely on the rim, it can be pulled over the rubber portion of the valve and positioned at the deepest part of the rim valley. The other side of the tire can then be installed onto the rim with the least amount of resistance.
