Current stock: 0

Hed's entire line of Big Deal fat rims can now be purchased as a rim-only, for the custom build of your dreams. 

Our demanding, discerning, and fat-loving customers have spoken: They love our Big Deal carbon rims. Nothing else offers the same combination of easy tubeless setup, stiffness, and jaw-dropping weight savings. They're utterly fat-tastic.

In an effort to bring the advantages of Big Deal technology to an even wider audience, our engineers worked hard to apply the same principles to an aluminum platform.
Enter: the Big Aluminum Deal and Big Half Aluminum Deal. At 80mm wide, these rims offer superb fit with all common fat bike tire sizes. They have the same Inflatobam tubeless technology as their carbon brethren - saving over a pound in inner tubes alone.  What's the difference between the B.A.D. and the B.H.A.D.?  Only the rim diameter.  The B.A.D. has a 24" or 26" diameter, while the B.H.A.D. is made for larger 27.5" fat bike tires.


Spoke count: 32, center-drilled only

Rim Diameters: 24", 26"

Tech Notes:

  1. Do NOT use tire levers on B.A.D. rims!
