The Ryde brand is present on the market only recently, however, takes the direct successor of the company Rigida. Rigida had over 80 years experience in the manufacturing of wheels and in 2011 by an investor group, which also includes the well-known manufacturers Sapim spokes heard purchased. New capital and experience of the two companies and Rigida Sapim form the basis for the new product portfolio.
Ryde's latest bang in the high end rim area is the trace. Developed as a rim for touring and racing, it stands out with a weight far below the the most 25mm wide rims. Nevertheless, the Trace XC rim provides high strength and stiffness with a reliable set of wheels. The large inner rim width of 21 mm ensures the tires by 52 mm width fit perfectly and thus provide optimum traction.
The rim profile of Trace XC is designed asymmetrically and the spoke holes are consuming drilled in two directions. Thus an almost identical spoke tension on the left and the right permits and prevents bending of the spoke nipples, providing ultimately a stable and durable wheel.
With a separately available Tubless kit, the rim to tubeless ready to be converted.
