Since Sun Ringle introduced the MuleFut 80SL Fat Rim a few years ago, it has quickly become one of the best selling fat bike rims because they are fairly lightweight, set up tubeless easy and strong enough for all season use. The Sun Ringle MuleFut 80SL V2 builds on the success of the original and takes it a set further by optimizing the cut-outs to a new trapezoid shape that increases the strength of the MuleFut 80SL and improves the tire profile. Sun Ringle's STR tubeless bead locks onto the tire even at low pressures to almost eliminate "burping" that can be caused by hookless beads.
Rear MuleFut 80SL V2 Wheels feature Sun Ringle''s lightweight SRC rear hub will fully sealed bearings. The internals of the rear hub are designed to balance durability and weight with an oversized alloy axle and super strong Dual Tooth freehub pawls. Sun Ringle worked with their sibling company WheelSmith to design both the front and rear SRC hub flanges to optimize the shape and size for strength, ride quality and more even spoke tension. Sun Ringle MuleFut 80SL V2 wheels are built with double butted WheelSmith spokes that have been treated with SpokePrep to reduce binding and easier service year after year.
Sun Ringle MuleFut V2 wheels include rim strip, tubeless tape, STR valve and a bottle of STR tire sealant. 177mm rear wheels include both endcaps for 170mm Q/R and 12x177mm frames. 197mm rear hubs include 12mm endcaps for 197mm frames only. If you are looking to use the MuleFut 80SL rear wheel with SRAM XD compatible cassettes you will need this this freehub body in addition to the wheel.
