Merritt coming through with a new rim to add to their growing line of products. The Battle Rim steps away from the low profile trend we’ve been seeing in BMX with some taller sidewalls to give the rim a little more beef. The Battle rim is made from 6061-aluminum with a 39mm width and a welded seam to ensure strength. We’re assuming it’s a double wall rim and it appears to have a beefier ridge in the middle to help prevent spokes from blowing out. We’re not sure if the rim will be available in more colors than black, but we can tell you it weighs in at 21.2 oz. and will be available for $79.99 through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Merritt worldwide.
Due out the end of September
