Can fat bikes be nimble? Yes! Nextie carbon fat bike rim review

Nextie carbon fat bike rims are ridiculously light, durable, and cost less than you think, making them one of the best improvements you can make to your fat bike.

There are three things you can do to drastically change, and improve, the way your fat bike handles. Add front suspension, install as dropper seat post, and finally upgrade your wheels. Replacing your aluminum rims with carbon will reduce your rolling weight, allow you to go tubeless, and add some stiffness, making your bike more nimble. Going fat doesn’t have to mean slow and heavy!

I was skeptical at first about ordering Chinese carbon rims, but I have been running Nextie rims on both my full suspension and fat bike for over 6 years and absolutely love them. I would highly recommend these to anyone as long as you don’t mind the extra shipping time.
