  • Designed for cross country racing and riding

Lighter and stronger than aluminum rims, the Valor’s carbon rim lay-up is engineered to absorb radial vibrations and impacts adding suspension to a bike. Non-compliant heavy rims that deliver a harsh, abusive ride have become the standard from most companies producing carbon rims. The ZTR Valor utilizes a construction that is both elastic and strong.   Stan's NoTubes has constructed a lightweight carbon fiber rim design not just to be stronger than aluminum but also to perform better in real world riding conditions.
