bc original Loamer MTB wheelset: lightweight, reliable and durable
During the construction and production of the bc original Loamer MTB wheelset, we didn't take any risks. The components are precisely made to fit each other and the wheels are laced and tested in Germany. We did all this to give you a long-lasting and reliable set of hoops!
The last few years have seen an increase in size in both tyres and wheels in the MTB world. This makes everything heavier and in the end results in a less responsive ride. Here at bc, we wanted to tackle this problem with the Loamer wheelset. The wheels are available in both a lightweight and stable 27.5" and 29" version. They are the perfect way to make your bike more agile and do it without burning a hole in your wallet! Thanks to the special rim design, the weight has been brought down tremendously without sacrificing any bit of stiffness. The wheelset has been tested in some of the harshest conditions. For example, we rode them down the rowdy trails of Canada and endless singletrack in the Himalayas. Every time they performed flawlessly. This is due to the Loamer just feeling at home on any terrain from XC all the way to Enduro. They will always be reliable partners on the trail. We are extremely proud to offer such a high-quality wheelset at this revolutionary price.
Thanks to the simple and clean design, the Loamer matches every bike's style. Whether that be a Cube, Specialized or Scott, from the rack or a custom build, this bc original wheelset is the best upgrade for every mountain bike.
What does Loamer mean?
" Loam" is what mountain bikers call fresh, loose forest floor which can be compared to powder in winter sports. Fresh loam trail sections are often called loamers and they offer mountain bikers that extra grip, which puts a smile on every face. This is where the bc original Loamer wheelset comes in. It ensures you have that kind of fun on every trail!
Note: Due to the 15 mm axle, you need an external toothed lockring to mount the front brake rotor.
Do you have old 6-bolt brake rotors? Not a problem thanks to the Center Lock adapters.
