Nowadays, road riding is much more than riding on a road. Gravel, bad choppy roads, fenders, lights, disc brakes, and even racks have broadened our horizon. The ER 1400 SPLINE is your premium alloy choice if you continued reading after the word "rack". Coming with a 20mm wide, super-light and resilient rim, as well as a hub based on the classic 240s, it is just what you need when your rides lead into the unknown and there are still the occasional bragging rights to be defended.
Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
