Eclat premiered the Jam rim at Interbike back in September, and it looks like they’re out now. The new Jaw rim is a unique design that’s aimed towards the brakeless guys out there. This 36 hole, double wall, 6011V-T6 alloy rim has a welded seam with angled sidewalls with access holes so you can replace broken spokes without taking the wheel or tire off the bike. The rim is available in black, blue and high polish with a weight of 15.97 oz. Check out more photos right here/
Spotted this one over on The Merged. It looks like Revenge is starting to get their new products in that they have been working on. The new Arc rim is a 6061-T6 aluminum rim that is sleeved and welded at the joint for extra strength with a 34mm width and color options of black, silver, chrome, dark green anodized, red anodized and blue anodized. The Arc rim weighs in at 15.75 oz. with a price tag of $54.99 ($59.99 for chrome).

Since I think Odyssey explained these new Aerospace rims proper…
“The Aerospace features an “aero”, or “V-shaped” cross-section, which creates a unique structural design. Made from 6000 series aluminum, it’s both easy to manufacture, incredibly durable and allows us to create a rim that’s strong, light and affordable. Thick inner sidewalls, and a lowered center wall section provide more room when installing or removing tires, and running brakes isn’t an issue. The Aerospace uses a traditional lacing pattern, just like the Hazard Lite, Seven K-A and Quadrant.

Looking for some new rims? Well, here’s a look at Cinema‘s new AR/777 rim that is available now. You can get all the details below. Straighten up!
“We just received our first shipment of AR/777 rims. AR/777 rims are 777 rims anodized in the USA with an aluminum oxide treatment used on AR 15 Assault Rifles. The aluminum oxide treatment bonds to the rim and is incredibly hard, increasing wear resistance for those of you who choose to run brakes. These rims are available in the USA exclusively through Greenhouse BMX. We’ll have more info about these rims up soon…” – Cinema
Here’s a look at Cult‘s new Match rim that uses a different V design. Here’s a few words from them about the rim…
““Triangles rule.” This statement played over and over in our heads when we designed the Cult Match rim…By inserting “Truss” beams in the Match rim, we have been able to add the “super strong” strength of triangles to the internal structure of our rim…The rim is welded and made out of 6061-T6 Aluminum…They will be available in black, blue, chrome, orange & red…Dropping this spring…“

Here’s a look at Federal‘s new Motion rim. The rim is made from 6061-T6 aluminum and features a double wall construction and welded seam. They didn’t specify, but I’m going to assume it’s 36 hole only. You can pick this up with a weight of 17.6 oz. and color options of black and Polished. Federal rim tape included. Expect this to be hitting all shops and mail orders that carry Federal soon.
