New Rims, Chainrings and Wheels from Race Face 3

Carbon rims, steel rings, and high-quality wheelsets highlight Race Face's Eurobike presence.

Race Face Direct Mount Steel Narrow/Wide Chainring

New for 2018, Race Face is introducing a steel version of their popular narrow/wide direct-mount chainring. The steel ring comes in at a very reasonable 25€ and has the potential to offer improved durability over the aluminum version. It’s slated to be made in 28, 30 and 32-tooth sizes weighing between 135 and 158 grams.

Race Face Next R Carbon Wheels

The new Race Face Next R carbon wheelset brings a nice wide 32mm inner width to both 27.5 and 29-inch bikes. The rims are made from a UD carbon fiber material and are laced to Race Face Vault hubs which feature a very high number of engagement points and large bearings. They are a straight-pull design with big flanges to increase wheel stiffness. Hubs come in standard and Boost sizes with either Shimano or SRAM XD freehubs. Weights slot in at 1595 grams for the 27.5 or 1680 grams for the 29-inch wheelset. Prices are listed at 799€ for the front and 899€  for the rear. Considering the width of these rims, these wheels come in at a great weight and could prove to be excellent contenders in the market.

Race Face ARC 31 Carbon Rims

Details were scarce about these new rims from Race Face, but we can tell you that they are an ultra-wide carbon offering from the brand and will be available in 28 and 32-spoke versions. Rim weight was listed at 490g for 27.5-inch diameter and they feature a hookless design with offset spoke hole placement.
