put the Atomik Carbon CHUBBY 43 through its paces on several fully loaded backcountry adventures, giving it a glowing review, stating, “The Atomik Carbon Chubby 43 wheelset has done nothing but impress me.”

“From a durability standpoint, I’ve ridden them loaded with no problem, shredded them downhill (as much as I can), and put them through some really technical rocky terrain with no more than a scratch to show for it. The low profile of the rim makes them a difficult target for trail debris and protects the rims from damage. Lastly, the rim has what Atomik calls the Foam Core Technology. The wheels are essentially filled with a lightweight foam between the two walls to increase dampening ability and energy dissipation so the ride stays stiff while remaining comfortable.” –
