bc original Loamer 29" / 27.5" Mullet Boost wheelset - big in the front, small in the back
The bc original Loamer 29" / 27.5" Mullet wheelset is a hybrid with a large 29" front wheel and a slightly smaller 27.5" rear wheel. As practical as a mullet, only the other way round. The combination " large in the front, small in the back" offers advantages when rolling over obstacles, downhill and generally when managing the centre of gravity.
During the construction and production of the Loamer MTB wheelset we did not take any risks. The components were precisely matched to each other, the wheels were laced by hand in Germany and extensive tests were carried out - all to guarantee a long service life and reliability!
In recent years, MTB wheels and tyres have become larger and heavier, resulting in a slower ride. We at bc want to counteract this development with the Loamer. The light and stable wheels make your MTB agile and manoeuvrable again, and at a very fair price! Thanks to the special rim design, however, the low weight is not at the expense of stability.
The Loamer feels at home on almost any surface and thus offers a very wide range of applications. From XC to Enduro it is your reliable partner. We can proudly say that we have succeeded in offering a very high quality wheel at a revolutionary price.
Thanks to its simple and discreet design, the Loamer also fits any bike. Whether Cube, Specialized or Scott, off the rack or a custom build - this bc original wheelset is a simple and inexpensive upgrade for every mountain bike.
What does Loamer mean?
In mountain biking, " loam" refers to fresh, loose forest soil, which is the equivalent to powder in winter sports. Fresh loam tracks are often also called Loamer and offer mountain bikers an extra bit of grip and always leave a wide smiling face behind. That's exactly what the Loamer wheelset by bc original does - have fun!
Note: Due to the 15 mm axle, you need an external toothed lockring to mount the front brake rotor.
Do you still have old 6-bolt brake rotors? No problem, thanks to the Center Lock adapter you can continue to use your old brake rotors.
