Stiffer and stronger than ever.
Offering an impressive 25% increase in strength and stiffness, the Stans Arch MK3 29in Wheel is a solid choice for surviving the extremes of enduro racing and aggressive trail riding. In fact, it's the go-to wheel for Stans team of professional enduro racers, so you know it's built to withstand serious abuse across technical terrain. Stans achieves an optimal balance of strength, stiffness, and lightweight efficiency with its 6069 alloy rim laced to Sapim Force spokes. Seeing that Stans is a tubeless pioneer, it's no surprise to see the Arch MK3 with Bead Seat Technology (BST) for a proper seal and secure fitment with tubeless set-ups.
The rim's low-profile shape makes it roll with less resistance, as well as avoid unwanted pinch flats across rocky sections of trail. Its 26-millimeter internal width gives you a correct tire footprint without deforming the rubber into a bulbous or bell-like shape. Stans recommends running tire widths somewhere between 2.25 and 2.5 inches for plentiful grip and support. Please note, the front wheel we're offering has a 28 spoke count for a bit of weight savings over the burlier 32-spoke rear. Both wheels enjoy the responsive feel of Neo hubs with a 6-pawl system offering an impressive 10-degree engagement.

- Q & A
The Stan's Arch Mk3 are a solid, decently light rim that is a great choice for durability and lightness on a budget. They are superb in the corners and set up tubeless tires in seconds. With the responsiveness of the rim, it's easy to tell how far you can push the tires before you start to break your traction. The Neo hubs engage superbly, which is a huge step above any standard hub which was one of the reasons why i demolished my previous rear wheel's hub. Highly recommend if you're a heavier rider who hammers on descents, but still wants to have a dream of being a weight weeny.
