Product Image BORG31/Kinlin XR31T 700C road CX gravel bicycle rim

BORG31 (Kinlin XR31T) 650B Bicycle road/CX tubeless compatible rim Black or silver

£55.00


Kinlin are a Taiwanese manufacturer of bicycle rims and they are very good at it too. There rims often get rebranded but here they are with no decals, excetpt the 20H and 24H asymmetric rims.

The XR31T 650B is a 415g rim that is 24mm wide (19mm internal width) 31mm deep and is therefore an aerodynamic alloy clincher rim that is also tubeless tyre compatible. It's width and depth make it very stiff allowing lower spoke counts. Better still there is an offset drilling option so rear wheels get a better tension balance. The rims are round and flat in fact out of all the rims brands I stock these are the most consistent. Tension limit 1200N. 

The symmetric rim brake rim is for front wheels and the asymmetric rim brake rim is for rear wheels. Spoke length for the asymmetric rim are unchanged.

Kinlin use a KLM41 aluminium alloy (niobium is one of the alloying elements) to create a very round and flat rim. It has a thick spoke nipple bed so is fine for any rider. 

The rims is more than suitable for road riding or racing or CX use and those that just want to ride can all use this rim. I am actually struggling to find anything I don't like about.

Same day disptach is not guaranteed due to volume of mail order. In general we are not operating with big delays in dispatch if any.

  • Standard shipping is with Royal Mail using there 24 service. Cost £3. This is not a guaranteed service and takes 1-2 days normally but can be longer. The tracking number is not tracking but is a conformation of delivery code. If the item has been delivered to you or a neighbour then the tracking shows something otherwise it won't.

Overseas

Due to the disruption in postal service, misdeliveries, customs issues and long delays all overseas shipping is now with UPS/Parcelfocre shipping, weight and destination affect price. So the following applies. 

UPS is apply a £5 surcharge to all parcel picked up from 1st November to 1st January. This cost is passed onto you. 

E.U countries that I ship to regularly.

Parcel Force shipping is used for a number of European countries. The price is the same for up 25kg. There is not a small parcel rate with Parcel Force. If your country is one of those then checkout is simple.Just checkout and pay. Parcel force offer a road freight service to most of Europe and it takes 2 to 5 days depending on the destination. UPS is also available on request. 

Other E.U nations/outside EU customers a will see UPS rates.

However if the rate maybe wrong and the UPS rates assume a small E2 jiffy bag suitable for many small items.  This if course does not apply for bigger items or multiples purchases. Quotes are available. Simply registering the website with you address e.t.c and I will provide full quote. 

Therefore contact the shop for a shipping quote. Your registered shipping address will used for the UPS quote. 

VAT will be removed as well and a new invoice issued.  If payment has already been made a refund for excess payment will be issued.

 

    For outside E.U customers the following applies. The order value is with VAT. VAT is 20% so order total for the parts/6 = VAT amount. 

    Then add the UPS shipping amount. The true amount may differ. the VAT is used if you have under paid if more is due then we will let you know. If you have over paid I will work out what and refund you.
