BUILD VERSIONS (Hub and Spoke Options)
Our standard builds are anything but “entry-level. Our AEROLIGHT build features superbly engineered Italian Ambrosio hubs and our All season SUPERAEROLIGHT build uses the superb Bitex hubs from Taiwan (the world’s longest established hub maker!). Both options laced with Pillars excel PSR Aero spokes.
For Maximum Aerodynamics, Lightness and All-Round Performance on a sensible budget: go for our standard SUPERAEROLIGHT++ build version (with the wonderfully aero CXRAY superlight spokes and Bitex Lightweight 'all-season' hubs). They come in at 1345 Grams a PAIR!!
By using cxray spokes and Carbon-Ti’s incredibly light and beautiful 220 gram hubset , we can save another 20 grams! That's our 1325 gram CARBON Ti version.
Or if you want the best engineered hubs on the planet - you can now upgrade to one of our DTSWISS builds for the ultimate in Swiss precision engineering!
Filament winding technology is an automated method which has revolutionised rim consistency in the manufacture of full carbon wheels. Made from single carbon filaments - the manufacturing process enables precise control of every step - resulting in the roundest, strongest, lightest wheel combinations.
This level of precision and care extends throughout the entire quality control process - with each and every rim X-Rayed for structural uniformity and compliance.
Not only does this make for stronger, longer lasting wheels - but also the nature of the "winding process" facilitates another new technology that massively increases braking capability - especially at high temperatures.
The filament winding process enables the injection of a patented ultra heat resistant resin - directly into the carbon filaments - whilst the rim is built. This means the rim's braking surface is fully impregnated with resin during manufacture - rather than a braking surface being added to the surface of the rim post-production.
This makes for better braking - especially on longer descents. These rims have their braking performance tested up to 230 degrees celcius. This is 20 degrees higher than our previous rims - and as high as any top-end rims on the market.
NOTE: Whilst rim tech has leapt forward in recent years - there are still some major things users of carbon wheels need to know! Please do read our page on safe braking and care for your carbon wheels HERE
Your wheels will be Handbuilt here in the UK. We combine traditional wheel-building techniques with cutting edge technology. And the world of carbon wheel-tech moves endlessly forward! Exciting times!
YOU CAN RUN THESE WHEELS WITH CLINCHERS OR WITH TUBELESS TYRES: IF YOU WANT US TO SUPPLY AND FIT NEW TYRES FOR YOU... WE CAN DO JUST THAT. Then you're ready to ride them straight out of the box.
Ideal for tyres from 23-30mm width.
The rim width debate will continue to rage and rage. What with rims now available from 19 mm right through to 28mm wide. We've decided to go straight down the middle and our rims are Significantly wider than old-school rims but not crazy wide. We think that's the best place to be!
