WTB KOM i23 Wheels & Nano 40 40c Tyres

Received: WTB KOM i23 Wheels & Nano 40c Tyres

The WTB KOM series of rims has proven quite popular with the mountain bike crowd. Available in a variety of widths and sizes, they’re plenty adaptable…especially the 29″ version…for 700c purposes on drop barred bikes.

WTB sent us a pair of its KOM i23 rims laced up to Shocker hubs. These 32-hole aluminum hoops tip the scales at a very respectable 440 grams, and have an internal diameter of…wait for it…23mm. And since they were originally made for mountain bikes, you know they should handle your off-road adventures with ease.

The WTB Nano 40c tyres were a hit the moment they were announced a couple of years ago. The TCS versions here are tubeless ready, and…let’s just say tubeless is a dream on the rough roads we love so much. The tyres weigh in at 530 grams, but they are durable…and they roll quite nicely.

We’ll be putting this wheel and tyre combination through its paces over the next several weeks, and we’ll report back with a full Rated review then.

    Any ideas on where to get WTB Nano 40 c TCS tyres – never seem to be able to find any in the UK

  2. @madhatter1 – WTB is distributed by ourselves in the UK (Hotlines Europe) and the rims and tyres are available via all good Cycle Shops – http://www.hotlines-uk.com/wtb-nano-race-cyclo-cross-tyrehttp://www.hotlines-uk.com/wtb-kom-i-23-tcs-rim-2016
