BA30 Front Wheel

The BA30 is a quality alloy rim designed to withstand a real beating.

This is the rim for high-impact riding when the trails are rough and rugged. With an internal bracing structure, the BA30 has torsional stiffness for directional control in demanding circumstances. The BA30 features a thick bead wall adjacent the tire to resist impact deformation, with a wider, rounded top-edge to reduce sidewall cuts. The nipple/spoke bed is oriented to the spoke direction to reduce weakness caused by bend in the spoke at the nipple hole. The BA30 is made with premium alloy, extruded with an internal brace profile and carefully formed for consistent shape. It is then fusion welded and ground for a strong precise finish. Our fusion welding system leaves a perfect seamless joint that becomes the strongest section of the rim ensuring that your rim won’t split if you impact at the seam. 

The rims are laced to our new R4 hub. The R4 is designed to be a solid, reliable hub with a durable axle assembly and robust set of bearings.  

We opted for a Chromoly steel axle for stiffness and longevity.  Using steel allows a smaller diameter axle which in turn gives us more room to use larger, sealed bearings (we use USA made enduro bearings).

The same as I said

The same as I said for the front wheel... So far it is holding up, so the wheel itself seems to be good. We'll see how it does long term. Dropped a star due to issues with shipping and lack of attention to the rim tape, along with a lackluster response to both.

Does the job

I'm pretty heavy and have a habit of breaking wheels. So far these have been fantastic. Rims haven't got so much as a ding and the hubs do what they're meant to. Would recommend to a friend.

BA30 wheels

Best wheels I have ever had. I've had one on my hardtail for three years and it hasn't even seen a spoke key. Also have a pair on my trail bike going strong after a year or so.

Nice

I built the wheels myself and got them straighter than any wheel I've seen before. So straight that when you spun them fast they looked like they were sitting still. Been bashing them hard for a year on hardtail with no problems.

The Only Alloy Rim I Trust

I run these rims on both my DH and by Enduro. I have destroyed 2 of them in about 2 years but for me that's pretty good. Neither has snapped just massive dents and a 5 spoke flat spot. These rims are insanely strong and with all other alloy rims I've tried i smash them in a ride or two. I will be a lifetime BA30 customer.

Excellent Roll Model

The BA 30’s pretty much deliver as promised. They stay true to form even after the occasional heart thumping miscalculated drop. The design feature where the rubber hits the rim is completely on point

I haven’t gotten to ride the wheel yet but it looks solid! I’ll update the review after some park thrashing.

These rims have been good to me. As I am notorious for blowing through rims they have been solid so far. Touch wood!
