Light. Dynamic. Strength to handle any trail.
Featuring e*thirteen's first-ever asymmetric rims, the Sylvan Race Carbon wheels are the perfect match for aggressive trail bikes or all-mountain machines catering to both daily trail rides and the occasional adrenaline-fueled descent.
The asymmetric 30mm inside-width rims feature a low height profile to increase compliance, absorb impacts, reduce fatigue, and improve traction. The asymmetric profile results in near-equal spoke tension between the drive and non-drive sides, resulting in a stronger wheel and more consistent ride characteristics. The valve dock interface ensures a good seal point for your tubeless valves. These features combined with double-butted spokes and alloy nipples make for a controlled lively ride feel.
The Race SL hub is equipped with a 4-pawl, 3° engagement freehub to ensure rapid engagement, essential for quick accelerations on changing terrains. A captive thread endcap means simple tool-free disassembly, simplifying maintenance tasks.
As always, carbon rims come with e*thirteen's trusted Lifetime Carbon Rim Warranty so you can push your limits and ride with confidence.
