Bike Rim Guide

Upgrading to significantly lighter, stiffer rims should generally translate into better acceleration and speed.

Mountain bike rims have been getting wider to give you better traction when riding.

These road bike rims are performance-oriented rims. With them, having a lower wheel light, strength, and stiffness matter a lot.

If you BMX race, get slimmer, lighter rims with a lower number of spokes.
