SPANK SPIKE RACE28 DH 27.5″ WHEELSET
The Race28 wheelset is built to be light and strong. Spank designed the Race28 with Downhill in mind, yet they made them light enough to use on your trail bike as well. Thanks to their BeadNip sidewall, the Race28 is easily converted to tubeless.
The Spank Spike Race28 Wheelset is constructed using Dynamal €“ a specially formulated and dynamically aged 6-series alloy that features a higher tensile strength and yield than traditional statically aged alloys without the normal reductions in fatigue life.
Rigidity and stiffness are important key factors in the quality of the rim. A strong and stiff wheel allows all exerted energy to be transferred to driving you forward, rather than flexing the wheel from side-to-side. Spank’s patented OohBah™ profile features concave inner and outer walls which immensely increases rigidity compared to conventional rim designs. The shapes and overall design of the OohBah™ rim profiles creates additional support sections that are unseen on other wheels. OohBah™ also provides a wider rim profile and makes way for Spank’s BeadNip™ Technology, meaning these wheels are not only stronger and lighter than conventional wheels, the wider profile and gives the tire a much better shape for improved traction while the BeadNip™ Technolgy allows you to run the tires you want at the pressures you want without the fear of constant flat tires.
