Thinking about switching up BMX rims and you want something a little… Lighter? GSport have released their popular Ribcage rim in this new Lavender colorway that’ll definitely do the trick while lighting things up on the color side of things.
The Ribcage rims are made from a proprietary high-strength aluminum alloy with patented ribs that reinforce the spoke holes to prevent nipple pull through. The rim also utilizes a cross-over spoke lacing pattern an increased angle that boosts lateral strength. Finally, the rim utilizes extra thick sidewalls with a 18mm height, and a 36mm width to help resist denting and pinching. Overall, the Ribcage weighs in at a lightweight 500 grams (17.6 oz.)
You can find the Ribcage at BMX shops and mail-orders that carry GSport worldwide in Lavender, Hard Anodized Black, Chrome and Toothpaste colors for $89.99 – $99.99 now.
