There comes a time in every wheel's life when it must evolve or be left behind. At Ride Maple we've been quietly working on our next evolution for over a year. You've seen the wheels under riders you know, you just didn't notice that they were a little different. We've tested every rim width with every tire size that you can think of and with each mold.... blah blah blah.
You stopped reading somewhere in the middle there. It's fine.
What you really need to know is that our NEXGEN lineup of wheels are lighter, stronger, a little shinier, and come with better after-purchase support.
We're offering a special pre-order program that ends at the end of January for April delivery. This is the one time discount for those of you who like to email us and say, "Give me a deal".
We're pleased to be taking pre-orders of our NEXGEN wheels until February 1st at program pricing! Your wheels will be delivered in April 2020.

Our new XCO, XCM, and EMP wheels are the result of testing multiple asymmetric rim widths with every tire that you can think of. The result is three widths to choose from that make sense and a new finish that is easier to clean and scratch resistant.
XCO - Our lightest MTB rim for XC racers who prefer traditional tire widths
XCM - Re-designed with a 30mm internal width and beefed up for strength. XCM is ideal for trail riders and racers who get a little rowdy but still like a light wheelset.
EMP - These are the wide ones! EMP rims come in 29" and 650b and have a 35mm internal width making them ideal for Enduro and Plus tires. If you go big choose EMP.
Formerly November and Lima, the RCX and RCT rims are improved with our new finish that is scratch resistant and cleans easier. It also makes them a little lighter and stronger but let that be our little secret.
RCX - Our do-it-all rim for road, triathlon, cyclocross, and gravel.
RCT - 50mm deep for an aero advantage.
CXG - Built on our XCO rims for a rowdy gravel wheelset.
