  • For enduro, trail, and all mountain use

  • Reinforced spoke bed

  • Stronger and lighter low-profile sidewalls for quicker acceleration

  • Compatible with standard tires when used with or without tubes

With multiple World Cup and World Championship victories already in the books, improving the legendary Flow wasn't easy, but input from the best riders in the world and countless hours spent sweating even the smallest of details has led to a rim that redefines what even we thought was possible.

The new Flow EX is lower, wider, and meaner, offering a lower profile sidewall and redesigned Bead Socket Technology for maximum durability and tire seal on even the most punishing of technical trails. We kept the weight low, but the new EX offers 14% thicker sidewalls for maximum dent resistance and a 33% thicker spoke bed for added pull-through strength. Increasing the outside width of the rim to 29.1mm and the interior width to 25.5mm let us reshape the bead socket for an even tighter seal and allowed our internal arch to add even more stiffness to the rim's structure. The new Flow EX: the strongest, fastest rolling, and best sealing tubeless rim available for 26-inch, 29-inch and 650b tires sizes just got even better.

Disclaimer

Stan’s Tubeless System provides you with the information and items you need to seal most tires and rims tubeless. When attempting this process, ride with caution the first initial rides to observe the reaction of your tires and rims. Due to the variety of tire and rim combinations, some may work much better than others. During your first few rides check your tire for leaking and correct air pressure. If your pressure drops too low there is a risk of the tire dismounting itself. The system allows the use of standard, tube-type tires, to be used in a tubeless manner. It should be noted that doing so exceeds the tire manufacturer’s original design intent and may void the tires warranty. Also, some tube and tubeless tires were not designed to be used with sealant and doing so may void the tire's warranty. Stan’s is not responsible for any damage to the tires and/or any injury or liability resulting from the use of a tire beyond the original design intent.
