The KinLin XR-300 is our favorite aluminum rim for a variety of applications. These rims feature a 30mm aerodynamic cross section and a weight most competitors can't match at half the depth. An added bonus of the deep cross section is strength, making the XR-300 well suited for stronger, heavier riders, or applications where total wheel stiffness is an important consideration. The XR-300 has developed an impressive reputation within the cycling community for combining excellent ride quality and durability.
Kinlin rims are extruded from a super light Niobium-Aluminum alloy and joined with a high quality sleeved joint. Finish work includes a high gloss anodization and machined sidewalls.
While we recommend that bicycle wheels be built by an experienced professional, the relative low cost of KinLin rims make them ideal for first time or novice wheelbuilders. We are happy to provide helpful advice in hub and spoke selections, or complete wheel build service. For inquires, please contact us directly or submit a form for a custom wheelbuild here.
