Whisky No.9 36w carbon wheels are made for all-around trail riding and off-road touring; striking a balance between width and weight. Intended to support a wide range of modern mountain bike tires, the No.9 36w rims have a 30mm internal width, feature hookless beads for easy tubeless setup and impact resistance. The wider rim width creates a broad base for the tire casing to support side knobs better, for increased comfort and traction.
- Centered around DT Swiss 350 hubs, well-known for their balance of performance, weight and tool-free serviceability
- Laced with j-bend DT Aerolite spokes and brass nipples for durability and serviceability
- Each wheel includes a Whisky tubeless valve and tape
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
