Triple walled rims available?

Was just hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Are there triple walled rims available (26 inch) and were do you find them?

Why on earth?

Stoutest rims you will find that I am aware of are Sun Doublewides. They are a way-overbuilt DH rim whose cross-section is a copy of a motorcycle rim.

I agree. there are triple wall pre-built wheels though. They are called the Bombshell (manufacturer) Crusher.

I really see no point in getting them though. Its alot of spinning weight.

And those bombshells weigh a ton which will effect how the bike handles when you go to get the bike to turn.

Front: 1513g = 3.33559403 pounds
Rear: 1749g = 3.85588497 pounds

For a set of stronger wheels, why not look into a set of Mavic EX721's laced to the hubs of your choice.

There is no need for triple wall rims.

The Bombshell Crusher Wheelset is perfect in Downhill, Urban, and Park.
