When you're riding full tilt into a steep banked turn, you need to have faith in your gear. You can trust the FR 1950 CLASSIC in any situation. The 30mm rim width offers your downhill tires unparalleled lateral support for even more speed when cornering, and the increased volume allows you to reduce your tire pressure and get traction like never before. The rim design, lightweight 240s hubs, and the DT Competition spokes have proven their robustness on the world's toughest downhill trails, bolted onto bikes ridden by Danny Hart and Loic Bruni. Whether you're riding against the clock or just for fun, the FR 1950 is perfect for all of you who've got something against braking.
Front wheels for downhill and some dirt jump bikes with 110mm x 20mm axle dimensions are available with either Boost or non-Boost hubs. Although the axle dimensions are the same, wheels with Boost in the name mean the hub flanges and rotor mount sit wider than standard hub flanges.
Boost and non-Boost components are generally not interchangeable. Be sure to check your fork compatibility before purchasing, and please contact us with any questions.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
