SPANK’s legendary race rim profile. Spank Industries’ SPIKE Race 28 rim has been a long-time favorite of the gravity fed, from the cliffs of Virgin, Utah, to the steeps of the World Cup. With a trim 22.5mm inner width, the SPIKE Race 28 rounds off tire profiles, reducing rolling resistance and improving maneuverability, for a quicker, more racy feel on track. Bombproof Dynamal alloy construction paired with SPANK’s unique OohBah rim design make the SPIKE Race 28 a go-to hoop for those who demand strength and stiffness in their rims. Now equipped with SPANK’s revolutionary patented Bead Bite tubeless technology, the SPIKE Race 28 rim is a go-to option for riders that require enhanced tubeless security and world class speed and performance.

Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
