Designed for fatbike riders who ride year ’round, Schlick Cycles developed the 47mm Northpaw-S rim to address a lack of availability of a similar sized rim in our market.
European fatbike riders have known about the benefits of narrower rims for all-season fatbiking for several years and now that advantage is available to the US market.
Our first rim offering is made specifically for Symmetrical Fatbikes using the 170mm rear and 135mm front standards. With an offset spoke pattern these make incredibly strong wheels.
The Northpaw 47mm rim is 120g per rim lighter than the most popular light-weight 65mm rims available and works great with the new, lighter-weight fatbike tires like the 45Nrth Husker Du, Larry Lite and Nate Lite as well as the Black Floyd for an excellent urban assault ride.
