Kinlin XR-22T rims are manufactured in Taiwan from their own "super alloy" KLM41 aluminum and formed using Kinlin's proprietary T10 forming process. What lies beyond these technical terms is a rim series that is both lightweight and strong, without the astronomical pricing that seems to accompany other manufacturers' high end aluminum rims. Kinlin's reputation for superior aluminum construction has been proven through over a decade of use in the cycling industry. Now with the presentation of their XR-22T, Kinlin follows modern trends with a 24 mm wide, road tubeless compatible rim.
A wide rim such as this increases the internal air volume of a standard road tire, while also allowing the use of wider tires like those used in cyclocross or gravel road races. The main benefit of an increased tire air volume is the ability to run lower pressures, which reduce road chatter, increase rider comfort, and decrease rolling resistance. The application of tubeless compatibility further compliments this design, allowing for even lower tire pressures without the risk of pinch flats. Sealant used with a tubeless tire will also reduce the likelihood of flats from minor punctures.
