ARC Offset Rim
From $118.99 CAD
No, You're Out Of Line
We found that by offsetting the nipple bed on these rims, we can optimize spoke tension and make the ARC wheels stiffer and stronger. Minds are blown.
No Tubes, No Problem
ARC Offset rims feature a tubeless ready design, with a rim bead you can trust to hold your tire in place - no matter what.
We tapped into our collective know-how to make this rim stronger, and better balanced than anything else on the mountain. Asymmetrical design creates perfect spoke tension while 6069 alloy provides a jaw-dropping strength to weight ratio.

This rim builds well with some DT swiss nipple washers. 2 months of charging and the wheel has not needed to be trued yet or tensioned.
The reason for the 3 stars is because Race Face did not include tubeless rim strip, a tubeless valve or the offset washer to adapt a standard valve to their rim.
For the price it should be included and luckily I had the left over bits from another wheel.
Great rim and a great upgrade! Have it on my hard tail and put the thing through some real ruff stuff and holds up amazingly!
Hoop arrived fast and did not get damaged in shipping. It’s going to get built once the summer ends. It’s a great looking hoop, pumped to get it built!
I like the offset rim design because it ends up using identical spoke tension on both sides of the wheel, which results in stronger wheels that run true for longer and take more abuse.
Only have a couple ride on these rims, but so far they have been great.
After riding a full suspension for over a decade, I decided to document my journey in search of the perfect Hardtail for me using parts my customers can easily afford at first and ending up with my personal Dream Build.
I ended up with these rims (green decals) on my favorite Antifreeze Green Onyx hubs (w our logo engraved), Sapim CX Ray spokes and Purple Nipples.
I have built hundreds of wheels in my 22 years in the bike business and find the Arc Offset seems to make an excellent strong wheel without a ton of weight or over priced.
I'm running mine on a 2020 Kona Honzo ST w 27.5+ w cushcore - perfection.
