|Subject: Animal LM and LM-H rims Fri Jul 25, 2008 4:53 am|| |
well theyre new to me
Designed around the needs of what is primarily a brakeless team, the LM takes a good look at how rims can be different if a braking surface is lower on the priority list (but still retain brake function). Using short sidewalls that then become angled to add lateral strength, the LM is able to keep weight down (16.1oz) without sacrificing strength. The design also features 36 angled nipple holes that are setup for the spokes to cross over to the opposite hub flange.
The same rim as the LM but with holes drilled in the angled sidewalls to reduce weight further and for aesthetics. The LM-R weighs just 15.6oz.
