Spank OOZY Trail 345 XD MTB Wheelset
The Spank OOZY Trail 345 XD MTB Wheelset is designed, manufactured and built in-house to industry leading standards. The Oozy Trail hubs and rims when combined using straight pull, triple butted spokes create a top of the line Trail wheelset. The wheelset can run very wide tyres, providing the perfect tyre profile due to the wide rim width. The finished wheel build is lightweight, comfortable and virtually indestructible; perfectly suited to the modern Trail rider who wants to session the roughest trails, over and over, every day of the week.
Bead Bite Sealed Tubeless System
The Oozy Trail 345 rims feature Spank Oohbah technology, combined with a sturdy and durable MGR Dynamal Alloy construction creates an exceptional competition proven wheel weight, which makes it one of the strongest alloy rims on the planet. The rim is ready to be setup to run tubeless, which provides optimal grip and rolling efficiency, since it allows you to run much lower pressures. The majority of tubeless wheelsets on the market suffer from bead burp, where when riding over challenging terrain, the tyre bead can burp sealant and loose pressure; the Bead Bite featured on Spank wheels eradicates this possibility, keeping your tubeless system sealed and rolling at its full efficiency.

- 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.
- Dynamal Alloy: This alloy is a safe, affordable and responsible alternative to carbon fibre. Utilising the endless lifecycle of aluminium, Spank’s proprietary alloy blends offer superior mechanical properties resulting in stronger rims and reduced weight through optimised design. Spank Industries has made a concerted effort to develop safe and affordable alternatives to the excessive use of carbon fibre in the bicycle manufacturing industry. Spank’s WC DH Race Teams and their most hard core Big Mountain Freeriders are running Spank?s Dynamal Alloy rims in the choice against carbon fibre. Unlike standard recycled alloy mixes, Dynamal is a dynamically aged highly magnesium-silicon enriched, pure alloy, which is blended with a special “secret” hardening metal. Compared to statically aged traditional alloy types, Dynamal shows a significant further increase in ultimate tensile strength and yield, without the normal reductions in fatigue life.
