Whether it's a World Cup DH race, cross country tour or the local trail on a Thursday night, the Stan''s Flow Rim has evolved through the years to match the needs of riders that like a little air between them and the trail. The Flow MK3 Rim now has a 29mm internal width, now fitting tires up to 2.8" at a weight that is 39g lighter than the previous version.
The Flow MK3 rim uses a new WideRight design with an internal width of 29mm. The WideRight design gives a larger air volume without distorting the shape of the tire''s thread pattern or sidewall so that the side knobs are in the proper position for traction while cornering. Proper tire profile on the rim also means the sidewall can do its job at protecting the rim by absorbing impacts and reducing the chances of a pinch flat.
Stan''s rims are known to be some of the easiest to set up tubeless thanks to their BST (Bead Socket Technology) bead and internal rim profile. The Flow MK3 rim can be setup tubeless using 30mmStan''s Tape, Stan''s Valves and No Tubes Sealant.
Flow MK3 rims have a max rider weight of 250lbs and a max PSI of 26 with a 2.8" tire.

The reputation of Stan's Flow MK3 precedes them. I kept waiting for them to come in stock on the Stan's site. After waiting too long, I found treefort bikes selling them for 40% cheaper. It took a week for them to arrive but it sure beat waiting 3 weeks for them to come into stock in other places.
Summed up: Good rims, excellent price with the price match!
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

First of all, Treefort is great to buy from. Fantastic price and fast shipping. Stans Flow Mk3 rims are easy to build up and have the perfect width for modern tires. Tubeless set-up is easy on this rim.
