A cross section of the Mavic Cross-Trail (and I think their other tubeless rims) showing the inner rim bridge that makes it leakproof without rim strips but also stiffens the rim. Picture also shows the milling in between spokes to reduce weight while leaving material around the spoke holes.

Stiffer and stronger Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.   [/size]
    • Rim is 4 times more resistant to fatigue stress
    • 20% increase in the rim rigidity to maximize power transfer
