A great rim for xc, trail and all-mountain use.
Welded joint with black anodized finish.
Optimized center arch for added stiffness.
Can be used with or without tubes.
Available in 26” or 29”
By eliminating the bead hook and lowering the sidewall by 2-3mm reduces the weight of the rim. Some of this material can be used in the center part of the rim making it stronger and stiffer.
The curve of the rim sidewall is the same shape as the bead of the tyre so they fit together like a ball and socket joint.
This design will help reduce the strain on the tyre bead while creating a tighter seal.
Lowering the sidewall of the rim also reduces the mechanical leverage the tyre has on the rim. This will make the rim stiffer and last longer by eliminating flexing that can cause cracking.
With these short sidewalls the tyre should not hit the rim and pinch flat as often as standard rims, either with or without tubes.
This design will allow you to run lower pressures and use 4mm more of the tyre than ever before. The tyre will have larger air volume giving you better traction.
The Yellow Tape Method
The ZTR 355, like all other Stans rims is fully compatible with the yellow tape and valve method for tubeless use. The ZTR 355 rim uses the 21mm tape used in the many of the other rims.
If using UST or tubeless ready tyres then you will need to use the yellow tape. If you are using lightweight kelvar tyres it is easier to seal the tyre using the rubber rim strip method.
The tape and valve method creates a lighter wheelset and the rim design will allow you to run extremely low pressures with very little or no burping.
