The FR 1950 Classic directly hails from the development factory that is the Downhill World Cup. The world’s wildest racers like Danny Hart and Brendan Fairclough have helped to develop this downhillers dream wheel. Thanks to its 27.5mm inner width, 240s thru axle hubs, and high quality build based on DT Competition spokes, it sprints out of the start gate and delivers right to the finish line.
Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
