[ Wild Dragon ] - Double Wall | 26" 27.5" | 85mm 90mm
This is where it all began for NEXTIE in 2013 with our first wheel mold for the Wild Dragon 26" x 90mm fatbike rim, which has led the rise and development of carbon fiber fatbike wheels all over the world.
The initial design concept emerged from a professional bicycle rider named Ryan Melnyck from Canada. The tri-angle cross-section of Wild Dragon highly supports the strength of wheel. The positive stiffness reaches amazing result of 426KG in the first test, more than 4 times of a normal carbon mountain wheel. The roof surface could easily slide snow, mud or sand from the wheel, which makes cycling effortless. As well, installing or uninstalling a tire gets quite easy to process by the design of smooth rim bed surface.
In 2015, we upgraded Wild Dragon and developed a lighter, high-quality version to meet the riders' demand for lightweight. In the same year, we developed a bigger size wild dragon - 27.5", which is the best choice for taller riders.
In 2016, with the continuous maturity and differentiation of the fatbike market, fatbike riders had new requirements for wild dragon. We appreciate the good suggestions put forward by every customer who loves our brand. This year, we developed the world's first carbon fiber tri-spoke fatbike wheel - wild dragon tri-spoke, which is still the unique carbon fiber tri-spoke fatbike wheel in the world.
In 2020, we continued to improve and make progress, and upgraded the Wild Dragon Tri-Spoke wheel equipped with high-end hubs: Wild Dragon Tri-Spoke with DT Swiss big ride hub was officially launched.
Going through the past 8 years, Wild Dragon is not only a classic product of NEXTIE, but also a benchmark of carbon fiber fatbike in the world. Though the field of fatbike is still not large, more than 3000 riders on six continents are riding Wild Dragon wheels, which is a proud achievement for us. One happy customer highly appreciated and said: NEXTIE is Fat Bike Wheel World Headquarters.

After the wild dragon fatbike rim was developed and widely recognized by the market, in 2014 year we developed the black eagle 65mm fatbike rims in two sizes of 26 inches and 27.5 inches.
This type of rim continues the wild dragon design gene and concept, maintains the high strength and riding comfort, could be used to mount a narrower tire, so as to control the bicycle more flexibly when riding in mountainous areas, which greatly enhances the riding experience.
Black Eagle series have also been recognized by the market fastly. In 2016, we developed Black Eagle carbon fiber Tri-Spoke wheelset.
