Introducing the "mid fat" 45mm Dually rim

We have extrusions in-hand and are excited to announce our latest rim, a 45mm, double-walled, "mid fat" rim we're calling the Dually. Not only does the design add strength, but it also keeps weight competitive at a conservatively estimated sub-700g for the 29-inch rim. The Dually was designed with mid fat, fat race and 29er-plus riders in mind.

The Dually is designed to work with current tubeless tire offerings, and features a reinforced sidewall to aid in preventing damage at low pressures with high volume tires. 

For starters, we'll be offering the rim in both 29 and 26-inch sizes, with 32 holes and black or polished finishes. As always, The Wheel Department will be offering complete wheelsets with the same hand-built quality and attention to detail they are known for.

We're expecting the Dually to start shipping in early September, 2013.

Starting today, preorders are open on our website at: http://www.velocityusa.com/product/rims/dually-622


  1. What are the recommended min and max tyre sizes?

  2. We're recommending 40mm+... the rim is designed to work with current 29, 29+ and fat bike offerings. On a narrower tire, it will spread the tire and give it a bit more volume and float. On a wider tire, it will save weight over the wider fat bike rims on the market but still hold the tire.

  3. Will you be offering the Dually in 36h?

    1. I believe that's the plan, eventually. Not 100% sure on an ETA though.
