Rail 52 Preorder

The Rail 52 preorder is now live. Check it out here. As previously announced, we've made a few small changes to the 52 for 2016. The brake track goes to 3k for better abrasion resistance and improved pad grip, while the big change is that Rail 52s now have a tubeless ready tire seat. Standard builds feature black Sapim CX Ray spokes, black brass nipples, and the outstanding Nimbus Ti hubs that White Industries make for us. Custom builds let you go crazy with options. All builds include skewers and come with tubeless tape installed. Tubeless valves are available as an add on.  

The first shipment is scheduled to ship to customers in early February. Thanks to Chinese New Year (it shuts Taiwan down, too), there will be a short gap to the second delivery. There are a few slots left in the first delivery group. 

Brake track on long term test wheel.

I understand the budget realities…You don't see 650b getting bigger; being more sensible for all road mixed riding?


I've noticed the overall weight of the Rail52 wheels have increased. New rim design add it? Is it gonna slow down! Haha
