Boasting a 25% increase in strength and stiffness, the Stans Arch MK3 27. 5in Wheel is a solid choice for the extremes of enduro racing and aggressive trail riding. In fact, this wheel is the go-to choice for Stans team of professional enduro racers, so you know it's built to withstand a serious thrashing. Stans achieves an optimal balance of strength, stiffness, and lightweight efficiency with its 6069 alloy rim laced to Sapim Force spokes. Seeing that Stans is a tubeless pioneer, it's no surprise to see the Arch MK3 with Bead Seat Technology (BST) for a proper seal and secure fitment with tubeless set-ups. The rim's low-profile shape rolls with less resistance and avoids unwanted pinch flats across rocky sections of trail. Its 26-millimeter internal width gives you a correct tire footprint without deforming rubber into a bulbous or bell-like shape. Stans recommends running a tire width in the neighborhood of 2. 25 to 2. 5-inches for plentiful grip and support. Please note, the front wheel we're offering has a 28-spoke count for a bit of weight savings over the burlier 32-spoke rear. Both wheels enjoy the responsive feel of Neo hubs with a 6-pawl system offering an impressive 10-degree engagement.
