The LaserDisc Trail is the ideal rim for today’s All Mountain abuse. Its 27-millimeter width adds strength and accommodates a wide range of tires from 2.0″ XC tyres to 2.5″ DH treads.
I-Beam: The I-Beam, found exclusively on LaserDisc series rims, was pioneered by WTB in 1994. This distinctive, centrally located vertical support counters spoke loads and provides torsional rigidity.
Unbendium Bulge: An additional band of aluminium added to the rim’s sidewall that counters torsional, radial and lateral flex. This rib, which replaces the braking surface, provides an impressive boost in strength with a negligible difference in weight. This WTB innovation is found exclusively on LaserDisc series rims.
GBS: WTB’s proprietary Global Bead Seat design utilizes deeper grooves for the bead seats as well as two raised lips that lock the tyre’s beads into place on the rim. GBS–featured on LaserDisc, SpeedDisc and Dual Duty series rims–holds the tyre firmly in place and greatly reduces the chance of “burping” the tyre off the rim in heavy lateral loading.
