Taking The Hits.
The Atlas rim, constructed with 6069 alloy, has a dent and flat resistant bead design, to stand up to all the gravity-fed mayhem you can throw at it.
Offset spoke beds are laced with burly double-butted straight pull spokes for a race weekend's worth of stiffness, balance, and hassle-free riding.

The Vault hub with its stiff oversized shell, wide bearing stance, and lightning-fast 3-degree engagement. Always ready for a full send adventure.

Like the turbine R wheelset, the Atlas uses the bombproof and quick engaging vault hub. Atlas uses stronger butted spokes and HD rim to take all the abuse. Been running the Turbines for over 2 years with only needing to change a rear rim from a poor huck to square edge rock line choice, which is easy with the same spoke length on these. Vault bearings are still spinning smooth. Actually took 3 years for the xd driver bearings to finally need replacing on my other set. Also great that you can get parts for these wheels to keep then running smooth.
My only complaint is that Race face dies not yet make the Atlas wheels in 15/110 & 12/148 boost or adapters on these for more aggressive enduro bikes. If you're listening RaceFace, please make, will buy!
