Why We Build It

Mainlines are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee and designed for long travel enduro bikes. 

Built for the rowdiest conditions, Mainlines are laterally, vertically, and torsionally stiff featuring a deep profile and robust cross-section designed to support the most aggressive tires.

Ride quality is tuned & improved through the use of SPM™ straight-pull hubs and 28 Sapim D-Lite spokes per wheel, laced three-cross (while straight-pull hubs from many other hub makers count the spoke lobe as one of the cross points, SPM™ hubs are truly 3x, maximizing torsional strength) .  The greater elongation properties of the D-Lite's thinner barrel (as compared to a more traditional 2.0x1.8 double butted spoke) give the Mainline a smooth ride quality in trail chatter despite it's sharp tracking and overall stiffness, while at the same time improving the wheel's impact resistance by allowing it more vertical movement in hard strike and/or bottom-out situations. 

The 34mm internal width of the Mainline is ideal for tires ranging from 2.4" to 3" (if you're consistently running 2.5", or narrower tires, you may also want to consider our Hotline Wheelset). When paired with a 2.5" (or Maxxis WT) tire, Mainlines deliver the most capable tracking in high speed chunk and hard cornering of any wheel we build.

Riders wishing to run narrower tires, or riders seeking a more vertically compliant ride with larger volume tires should check out our Hotline wheelset.

Performance by design

The Difference is in the Details

At RF, we're obsessed with the belief that the "whole" should be greater than the sum of its parts.  It's why we build our wheels in-house, by hand.  It's also what leads us to design and manufacture almost all of the components that we use to build our complete wheels.  From hubs & rims, to tubeless tape & valves, we design each and every part to work together flawlessly as well as to excel individually.

I can't believe how much I've enjoyed these Livewire wheels...I'm glad I was introduced to this small, SoCal company because these cross-country wheels have been a revelation to me!  MTBR.com Gear of the Year
