Composite High Pressure Rim
The new 50psi Composite Rims are now available aftermarket and will be
standard equipment on all new Blokart’s from January 2022
The Composite Rims feature:
– Strong fibre reinforced construction, which allows tyres to be inflated to 50psi
for minimal frictional resistance when sailing on hard terrain….faster top
– Tubeless Tyre compatibility, the larger diameter shoulders on the Rims allow
the tubules tyres to seal which makes inflation significantly easier.

– Some sailors have even managed to inflate their tubeless Tyres with a hand pump!
(Tip: leave a tube inflated in the tyres for 24 hours+ before fitting)
– Composite Rims take the same Bearings and Spacers as the older Rims, so its not essential to
replace them when upgrading your Rims.
