Elite-Level, High Performance Wheelset
Constructed from a high-performance alloy, this superb wheelset comes tubeless ready and built with a rugged, corrugated rim centre, ensuring grip, comfort and structural strength is the best it can possibly be as you slay it on the hillside. Supported by 32 J-Hook, triple butted spokes and their alloy DSN nipples, each wheel features a pair of efficient and durable hubs and are built with innovative technologies that ensure stability and efficiency with every roll.
Equipped with BeadBite Anti-Burp rim hooks, air-loss from your own ideally inflated tyres is eliminated, while the OohBah inverted wall design ensures the rims keep their shape and don’t fall foul of twists and bends, no matter how rowdy your ride gets. Lightweight, adaptable and exceptionally strong, the SPIKE Race 33 Wheelset is a top-end duo that is sure to propel you to greatness.

- Bead Bite: At an incredible range of pressures, Bead Bite is the solution to keeping your tires burp free and fixed in place. Bead Bite rim technology enhances tubeless use with tires of all types and with a greater range of air pressures. Bead Bite rims have 6 rows of tiny ridges that run along the vertical and horizontal faces of the bead seats. These tiny teeth create air seals between the rim and tire as the bead conforms into them under air pressure. They dramatically increase frictional forces on the tire bead, reducing the beads’ ability to move vertically or horizontally (thus improving tire stability and reducing burps). The bead literally becomes trapped between the vertical and horizontal ridges, even at very low air pressures. Even in tubed applications, Bead Bite rims tend to allow much lower air pressures with reduced risk of pinch flats.
- Oohbah: The unique OohBah profile allows Spank to manufacture thinner walled, wider profiled, lighter rims without sacrificing strength or rigidity. Wider rims mean stiffer wheels and more tire spread, leading to greater traction and improved comfort, and tire performance. The “wave” shape of the OohBah inner tube adds strength and support to the vertical rim flange walls and prevent buckling. Normal straight or curved tube wells must be much thicker, and by default heavier, to offer the same support.
