With Boost axle widths delivering an extra kick of power transfer and tracking consistency, the Stan's NoTubes Arch MK3 29in Boost Wheelset gains inspiration from Stan's XC speed demon Crest's rim profile and gravity-focused Flow's burly internal arch design. Thanks to the revamped rim profile, this versatile wheelset shows up ready to ride in a stronger, wider, and lighter package than its revered predecessors. The MK3's internal rim width juts out from the EX's 21mm to a hefty 26mm platform designed to pair with 2. 25 inch to 2. 5 inch tire widths. As with every Stan's wheelset, the Arch MK3 uses Stan's Bead Socket Technology (BST) with remarkably low profile sidewalls that lets the tire bead to seat more effectively, which brings a heap of benefits compared to standard rims with higher sidewalls. BST results in an exceptional tubeless seal while also allowing the tire to hold greater air volume than standard rims that place the bead 2-4mm below the edge. This interface allows the tire to maintain its full shape for a wider, more stable rolling platform compared to the same tire mounted on a standard rim. The Arch MK3's ability to run up to 30% lower air pressure in the tubeless system than a standard tube setup paired with all those BST features results in exceptional tire stability, better handling, confident cornering, and overall improved control out in the dirt. And if you're not quite ready to make the tubeless leap, these rims are also compatible with standard tubes, with the lower sidewalls drastically reducing pinch flat risk by limiting the amount of material present for the tube to pinch against. This means less time off the trail in the dust wrestling with flats and more time getting after it on your favorite loops. Stan's Neo hub set sits at the center of the Arch MK3 with oversized, smooth-spinning bearings that glide on a stiff, strong, swaged axle. The Neo cradles the bearings at a wider stance for a claimed threefold increase in strength com...

Maine ocean islands provide the only nesting sites for Atlantic puffins in the United States. Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
