If carbon fibre is good, then this much must be fantastic!
Though not their first carbon wheel, Borealis’ new collaboration with Utah-based Reynolds composites takes their wheel game up a notch with the new Elite. Addressing some lightweight fatbike wheels’ shortcomings when used in rougher terrain (primarily the breaking), the model promises to “deliver an experience that will outshine all others.”
The 85/80mm rim is tubeless and hookless- but will need to shed 610g to be truly weightless. Made in the USA in a unique Boralis-owned mould, the double-walled Elite is approved for all terrain, allowing lightweight fatbikes to live up to their go-anywhere promise. US pricing is set at $1,000 per rim, $2,300 for the complete wheelset.
