Designed for downhill and all-mountain terrain, these aluminum rims improve upon the previous model with a slight width increase and a minimal weight increase. Meant to improve stability on the ride, these changes make for a softer feeling ride that allows you to ride over rocks and bumpy trails with fewer shocks and jolts. These rims come in sizes 26", 27.5", and 29" and are compatible with tires up to 2.8" wide.
Please note that when selecting this item, the links lead to slightly varied types of this product, so please pay attention to the product description and make sure that you are selecting the correct size that you want to purchase. When used with tires that fall outside the size range listed above, these rims are not nearly as effective, so double check the specs of your tires before your purchase.
Many of the reviews surrounding this product praise the fact that the rims do their job exceedingly well, making the rider feel more stable, and holding up on tough rides. Pinkbike describes that the rims "proved to be worthy of carrying on the Flow name, and took all the abuse they were subjected to without flinching." After reading several user reviews, we get the impression that the Flow MK3 rims are well suited for serious riders who want a long-term and reliable piece of equipment.
If you're in the market for sturdy and reliable rims that don't have the pricetag of comparable carbon rims, the Flow MK3 rim will impress you on the trail for plenty of tough rides.
