E*thirteen components' methodology to wheels is a refreshing and effective solution to the rotational weight dilemma. By moving mass to the hub, via large flanges and shorter spokes, the TRS 29in Wheel accelerates fast without becoming a flex'y flier in the rough stuff. This design increases the acute angles formed within the rim/flange triangle and results in a claimed 70% reduction of stress placed on the spokes. The combination of short spokes and a structurally stiffer wheel design will be felt on the first voyage aboard a set of TRS wheels. Within the hub's 6061 alloy flanges are angular contact bearings that roll fast and are well sealed against the elements. At the freehub, three pawls, with two sets of teeth, engage with 60 points on the drive ring for quick and positive ratcheting. Connecting the hub to the TLS tubeless compatible rim are quad-butted spokes. Alloy nipples ensure a low weight, and a LEX process brazes the eyelets for added strength where it's needed. The TLS rim profile delivers a solid connection between UST tires, and the rim's hook to eases inflation and prevent burping during heavy side loading.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
