Getting funny looks when you show up to ride rugged Moab lines on a hardtail is part of the deal, but scorn will turn to consternation when you rally past the haters on the Ibis 938 29in Boost Wheelset. When you stick the requisite plus-sized tire (2.8in is the recommended spec) on the 938, you’ll be able to run super-low pressures that will take traction to the moon and take the sting out of rugged lines, letting you crush everything from sand to chunky rock gardens to lift-served lines.
A plus-sized wheel can get a floppy if the designers aren’t careful, but Ibis outfitted the 938 with burly Boost hubs to give the aluminum rims an extra dose of stiffness, so you can hold a line while the skinny-tired enduro tough guys are getting tossed around. Proprietary SRAM- and Shimano-compatible drivers make the 938 a fit for any plus-sized bike, too, so you can spend more time riding and less driving yourself crazy trying to sort out compatibility issues.
- Stout wheelset for trail riding on plus-sized tires
- Tried-and-true aluminum construction stands up to trail abuse
- 34mm internal width pairs well with 2.8-inch tires
- Stealthy appeal without flashy logos or loud colors

Ibis 938 29in Boost Wheelset
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these as a temporary solution for my new 29+ setup while I decided what Fancy carbon wheel to build. After ~50 miles on them I'm pretty sure I don't need to keep looking. I easily mounted the 29x3.0 bomboloni's with a floor pump and the wheels feel plenty light and stiff. For the price point they are amazing.
Ibis wheels are the real deal
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought these with my wreckoning. At first I was skeptical because I was not familiar with wheels made by ibis... Well I no longer am as these wheels are amazing. Stiff, wide profile and they work well in every discipline. I'm sold on Ibis wheelsets and hubs!!!
Are the hubs quiet?
They're not particularly loud. I'd peg them as somewhere less than an I9 but louder than a Shimano hub.
