Durable, strong and very smart.

The Andra range gives a new meaning to strong wheels. The secret to that is in the details.

The Andra 40 rim is the solution to get the strongest wheels for hard used bikes. From cargo bikes to family bikes ('bakfiets') to mountain-bike downhill bikes. The 25 mm internal width works perfectly with all the wider tyres that are available. If it has to last, take the Andra 40.

Overall Product Rating 5 / 5
Excellent touring or cargo bike rim

I recommend this product
ConsQuite heavy but in line with other rims made for this purpose
ProsEasy to build a strong and true wheel
The Andra 40 rim built into an extremely strong wheel for a cargo bike. Spoke hole drilling impressively angled and countersunk for a 3x build.
Quality appears to be a step up from the Sputnik range. Smooth rim join and minimal out or round.
Questions & Answers (7)
Tandem build spec
06 Apr 2019
Hi, would these be your rim of choice for 36 hole tandem wheels for a c155kg couple (rim brakes)?
Which spokes would you use with them? (using XT parallax steel axle hubs from the 90s btw)
We are looking for maximum durability, and use Dureme Tandem tyres.
We would suggest Andra 30 or 40 in many cases. We would recommend DT Swiss Champion Spokes.

Are they out of round?
05 Nov 2018
Hi! I've heard from several bike mechanics in Finland that Andra rims are so out of round they are extremely hard to build. Is this a common problem or are they selling us b-stock?
Hi, yes Andra rims are difficult to build! However they are good. Our technique is to use 14mm nipples, plenty of lubricant, build and tension the drive side first then the non drive. Thanks
does this come with a CSS coating
30 Aug 2018
I'm looking for a strong wheel with ceramic coating (am using sputnik CSS rims with 40k miles, and still going strong). If the andra 40 would not be the right choice, which rim would you recommend?
These are not CSS coated, we would therefore recommend an Andra, Grizzly or similar.

Are they good for disc brake? Thanks!

Hi there,

These rims are designed for rim brakes and have machined side walls, but there is no reason you could not use these with disc brakes.

Stronger than Andra 30?
31 Jan 2018
Another inquire, I usually use 26 inch by 1,75 and wider for travelling with heavy loads on very bad surfaces, would this rim make a stronger and more long lasting wheel than the Andra 30? thanks again !
Hi there,

The 40 has a max weight limit of 180kgs compared to the 30s 130kg, the internal diameter is also 3mm wider, giving a slightly wider tyre profile.
Please be aware, you can have the best components but a badly built wheel will last no longer than a cheap wheel that is well built!

Drilling of the rim
31 Jan 2018
Hello, i wonder if this andra 40 is drilled in the same way as the andra 30, i found this product description of it at the manufacturer wesite, i wonder if it is the same you have
Hi there,

We have the standard drilled rims.

Andra 40 Rohloff Hub
22 Aug 2016

I wonder if the Andra 40 rim is drilled particulary for internal rear hubs like Rohloff.

These Andra 40 rims are drilled for standard hubs, you could still run them with an internal hub but the spoke angle would be less than ideal.
