"Is this really a trail?" ... words often heard on the descent down Farlow Gap in the Pisgah National Forest. This trail resembles a creek bed more often than singletrack, and those loose rocks and entangled roots are just the type of riding the Farlow rim was designed for. The design goals of the Farlow were simple, to make the best AM/Enduro rim on the market. The result is a wide, lightweight, asymmetrical, durable, stiff and tubeless ready rim ready to take you up the steepest climbs and down the gnarliest descents with more speed and precision than you've experienced before. The Farlow's full carbon hookless and seamless bead construction provides the ultimate in stiffness and toughness at the lowest weight possible. It's designed to handle a wide range of riding including extreme all-mountain terrain, Enduro, Super-D and XC racing. The Farlow gets all of our latest technology, including UniWeave construction, the Anti-Burp Bump, the strongest RockGuard Hookless bead lip we've ever made and of course our asymmetric offset design which improves spoke tension equality by more than 15%.
We offer the Farlow 29 as a single rim or a complete wheelset. Our wheelsets are handbuilt right here in Tennessee using only the best components; Sapim CX-Ray or Race spokes and DT Swiss alloy Pro Lock squorx nipples.
