Designed for high volume 47mm tires
We rode gravel on 25mm tires at first, then jumped up from 28mm eventually to 40mm. Each time the tire size increased, the bike geometry and gear ratio changed. The traction was better, but the handling was worse. Using a 650b X 47mm tire you have the same outside tire diameter as a 700c road tire.
A lightweight gravel rim that rolls really fast due to the larger footprint of tire contact. It’s designed for the low pressure/high volume 650B tire which is going to have a stronger sidewall which will increase stability. This setup is extremely fun to ride, very responsive, and much more plush. This is a great rim for someone who wants to have a really fun and comfortable ride on rocks or road! A great wheel to run a 47-48mm semi slick or a knobby 40-42mm.
If you are experiencing toe-overlap with your current setup or you are on stock wheels, this is a great upgrade. If you want to have more comfort on your rides, or are looking for the ultimate responsive feel in sand, gravel, or broken path, the Jocassee 650B is your next wheel.
