Because we’re riders too, our ultimate goal is always to make wheels we’re stoked to get out on. Strong, sturdy, no hassle, and of course fast! With that in mind, we’re stoked to welcome the Turbine R 35 to the Turbine line of wheels. Prepare to enter traction country on this rowdy, enduro-rated wheelset.
We’ve taken a look at their ARC Carbon wheels and Vault hubs before and were impressed.
Starting with an RF-designed lightweight, stiff and durable 6069 welded Alloy rim with a dirt hugging 35mm inner width gives you a traction-optimized setup for wider tires (2.4-2.8).
A 4.5mm offset spoke bed laced with reliable, double-butted straight pull spokes provides ideal wheel stiffness, strength, and overall tension balance. The specially designed rim bead means easy tubeless setup and optimal wheel security as you rip through the turns.
The unsung hero of the Turbine R 35 wheelset is our tried and true Vault Hub – high engagement, big time performance. Its oversized body and flanges keep things tracking straight while its wide bearing stance and large cartridge bearings offer great durability, season after season. The Turbine R 35 is available in 27.5” + 29″ and all modern spacing options (Boost + Super Boost) and cassette body choices (Microspline/XD/HG).
