Can't really tell from the website. Does the concept exist?
Well that's more clear. Since you've seen the media page that was linked in the other thread with pictures of the AM UST rim, the answer to your question is "yes, the concept does exist."slip20 said:I can't. Thats why I asked. The last thread here talking about them indicated that there is an XC version in UST, but I have not heard whether they are redesigning the AM, and when it may be available. There is a pic on the website, but the website is ambiguous. Someone on another forum indicated that it is in the works, but had no definitive information.
Nah, that just costs $. It seems like manufacturers aren't that concerned about having the UST label these days anyhow.craigsj said:I suspect the ENVE engineers aren't struggling with the design but with obtaining the UST label.
So Mavic enforces additional dimensional controls beyond the ETRTO spec (their UST spec)?bholwell said:Nah, that just costs $. It seems like manufacturers aren't that concerned about having the UST label these days anyhow.
I've been told it's hard to control the dimensions of the carbon rim to the tolerances needed for UST.
well, that's something to think about, because stan's and UST are not the same in terms of intended use. if you like to convert regular (tubetype) tires to tubeless using stans rims, you will have a much harder time doing so on a UST-spec rim. If you already use "tubeless ready" or UST tires, then you'll have a 100% purpose-built system.slip20 said:I should probably clarify and say that I don't really care if they are UST...just looking for a tubeless ready bead profile. I've been really happy with the Stans setup.
