Fat, but light.

The Ibis 941 Carbon Fiber 29in Wheelset is wide. Like, really wide. So wide, in fact, that a few years ago, it would have been nearly double the width of the popular rims of the time. So wide that it’ll make your tires wider by a tenth or two of an inch. In a world where tire performance is dramatically different between a 2.2 and 2.4in tire, this isn’t exactly small potatoes.

Ibis saw more and more folks running medium-wide rims (in the neighborhood of 25mm internal) and thought, well, maybe even wider would be even better. They made a few prototypes and settled on an internal width of 35mm. At 35mm, most tires retain their general shape as it pertains to tread pattern, but also benefit from the wider base, which provides more support to the sidewalls, and adds volume exponentially.

What’s it mean on the trail? Grip, and lots of it. That extra volume means a bigger contact patch, and the extra sidewall support means you can safely run lower pressures, which again increases the contact path. It won’t turn your 29er into a fatbike, but you’ll get a little taste of what extra rubber on the ground can do for anyone.

I got the santa cruz bantan X01 from you guys, size m with 27.5 . What mm size is the right IBIS whee for my bike?
Is this the price for a pair?

The price is for both wheels. These are 29" wheels. For your bike, you would need the 27.5" version: http://www.backcountry.com/ibis-741-27.5in-wheelset and be sure to select the "XD body" in the drop down menu. Feel free to contact me directly to place an order with discounted shipping.

What is the XD body?

Hey Doug W,

The XD driver body is for Sram 11 speed cassettes.

That is a hub body that is meant to work with Sram 11 speed cassettes only, due to their 10 tooth cog that won't fir a standard hub body.

If you have any other questions you can contact me at jehall@backcountry.com

where can I get end caps for quick release for ibis 941

Hey Vladimir P,

Dt Swiss offers end caps for these hubs. You can get them from DT Swiss, or have a local bike shop get them for you.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got these for my Ripley (wicked great bike if you’re in the market). In comparing to identical tires mounted on Stans Arch rims they add millimeters, not centimeters to the width but I do think there is a little more of a contact patch due to spreading the casing out. They have stayed true despite taking a beating on trails. Set up tubeless without the need of an air compressor. DT hub has its mild whirr when freewheeling but nothing like the pleasant cacophony of an I9 hub. These are my second 941s. First was the early version last year that had a no-name hub (some asian maker for ibis). I put those on a fully rigid bike with and they continue to hold up very well mounted with 3” rubber for dirt riding and bikepacking.
