More Info

The Flow CB7 uses an asymmetric rim design to create a stronger wheel. Asymmetric rims drilled with offset spoke holes increases strength by improving the bracing angle of the spokes, creating a stable, wider base that supports the rim. But bringing Stan's NoTubes Bead Socket Technology to an asymmetrical rim presented a whole new level of challenges. 

Stan's NoTubes partnered Ibis to develop the Flow CB7 rim. Using an asymmetric design with offset spoke hole drilling to improves the bracing angle of the spokes and creates a more stable, wider base that offers more support for the rim. An asymmetric designs makes for a strong wheel. Ibis has been doing this for years but until now, asymmetric designs offered relatively poor tubeless performance due to an imbalance caused by the two differently shaped sides of the rim. To solve this problem, Stan's NoTubes engineers developed a version of their patented Bead Socket Technology specifically for asymmetric rims.

Bead Socket Technology (BST) tubeless rims make it easier to install, inflate, and remove tires. BST also offers a dependable airtight seal in all conditions. Stan's NoTubes trademark low sidewalls are another aspect of BST that not only improves tubeless performance but also provides increased strength while saving rotational weight for faster acceleration.

The low sidewalls, carbon lay-up, and overall shape of the Baron CB7 also incorporates RiACT, Stan’s NoTubes radial impact absorbing carbon technology. While still offering excellent lateral stiffness, the RiACT carbon rims deflect radially to absorb impacts and vibrations, making them durable, comfortable, and fast rolling.
