Small rim, big tire, huge fun
We’ve never gone on an all-road/gravel ride where in the end people said: “That was fun, but it would have been better with smaller tires”. That simply doesn’t happen, when the going gets tough, wider is better. Which is why our Exploro frame fits up to 2.1” tires and why we are big supporters of 650b wheels, since they allow you to mount wider tires without the overall diameter of the wheel becoming unwieldy. The Discus Plus is the world’s first wheel range specifically designed for wider tires on all-road/gravel bikes, whether you use a RoadPlus (road profile, 44-50mm wide) or GravelPlus (small mountain bike tire, 50-54mm (2.1”) wide). The advantages are obvious: more grip, more comfort, almost unflattable (is that a word?) so you are practically unstoppable.
