Welcome.. Enjoy the ride!

ZELVY..

What is it about mountain bikers and engineers? Surely you have noticed right? Well, we are engineer-loving mountain bikers and designers whose path led us to design the very best products using carbon and our practical know-how. We started out repairing carbon frames, making our own frames, and making downtube guards and other accesories from carbon/kevlar. Then we moved to what is now our most popular product, mountain bike rims and wheels.

Zelvy is a 100% Australian company, based in Toowoomba QLD. Home of a great MTB scene on top of the Great Dividing Range, we design using the most advanced CAD programs and 3D printing technology, then develop right here in our own small Toowoomba R&D workshop, (where we also make our #unobtainable projects) once we are happy we manufacture our production runs in one of the most advanced factories in Asia, where we know they employ some of the most experienced composites engineers with the best bike knowledge in the business, and use the absolute latest manufacturing technology, you simply cannot get that in Australia, chances are your bike is made there also...

 

2017..

For 2017 we introduce several new rim options. Our BBT range is a SUPER DUTY rim. The strongest carbon rim on the planet  is specifically engineered as a rear rim  (although may be used on the front, your choice). It offers unmatched impact resistance, while still providing the stiffness, precision and unmatched acceleration we are famous for. Available in 27.5' and 29'.

FIRST RELEASED IN 2012...

and fettled and refined ever since, with a race pedigree that proves its performance:

Chris Kovarik 2nd place - Fox air DH, Whistler Crankworx 2014

Wyn Masters- 3rd place - Rotorua EWS 2015

Phil Atwill - 14th place UCI DH World Cup Leogang, 16th place UCI DH World Cup Fort William.

Not to mention our UCI World Cup team Propain Dirt Zelvy

27.5' BBT is overkill for all but the wildest, loosest Downhill riders who like to annihilate the rockiest Downhill race circuits at warp speed, overkill for anyone else.

29' BBT is the only 29' rim available specifically engineered for the new wave of heavy hitting, long travel 29' Enduro bikes. More than capable of a World Cup Downhill race one weekend, a mid week trail ride and onto an EWS round the next.

RBL Series Rims 'Really Bloody Light' The RBL rim is available in 25mm internal, 30mm external 27.5' (345 grams) and 29' (365 grams) diameter. IT IS NOT A XC ONLY RIM. Actually it is capable of EWS type abuse. The trick is we have used a higher grade (and more expensive) grade of carbon. reinforced with the same impact resistant resin. So it is lighter, but still tough as nails.

PDL Series Rims PDL is our standard series of rims. The most common rim, available in both downhill and enduro weights.

MATTE MARBLE is the most obvious defining feature of the 2017 line up. Sure, underneath this subtle yet classy finish we have tuned our layup even more to further increase performance and durability as well. But it still pays to look sexy right?

NOT TOO BIG, NOT TOO SMALL...

There is no clear winner in the rim width debate. Each width has its own advantages and disadvantages. That's why we offer three different widths (four if you count 'Plus' size). Sure; that means over the 3 different rim sizes we offer (#26aintdead) there can be three different widths, some with three different layup options, and that's a lot of moulds and logistics. But it's just a part of our NO COMPROMISE Ethos, you get what you want, not what we tell you.

ENGINEERED IN AUSTRALIA AND BUILT TOUGH!

The toughest carbon rims on the planet is a bold statement. More than a sticker on a rim. For the past 4 years we have continued to fettle and fiddle, learning and evolving. Design, test, improve and repeat.

All our rims are dual wall, meaning there is a hollow section inside the rim, creating a beam structure. Optimised for maximum impact resistance, handling and ride. So you can go faster.  A result is our 24.5mm rim height no matter the width of the rim. Too high and the rim becomes too stiff, resulting in a harsh ride and compromised impact resistance. Too low (or worse, single wall) and the rim needs too much material to retain steering precision. Not only that but impacts result in spoke 'hammering' As the rim is now too flexible, the spokes stay the same length but the rim deforms, the spokes are temporarily free from tension during the impact. This happens over and over again until the spoke or nipple fails from fatigue.

We like to build them strong!

HAND BUILT AT YOUR LOCAL ZELVY BUILD CENTRE JUST FOR YOU!

Each Zelvy wheel is built at by hand, not machine, and they can be hand built just for you using FIRST! Custom ! Aggressive rider chasing World Cup Downhill or EWS podiums? Featherweight cross country whippet? Casual weekend warrior? This effects the loads the wheel takes, much like a faster or heavier rider needs stiffer suspension. Using FIRST! The wheel can also be tuned to suit, just dial in the options, Now custom tuned wheels isn't just something reserved for our World Cup Team racers. and EWS riders. Of course you can still choose our Pre Built wheels straight from QUICKBUY or customise them through our Wheel Builder

The best news though is the opening of Zelvy Wheel Build Centres in Australia (Zelvy HQ), UK (Nov-16), Singapore (Nov-16), Europe (Nov-16) and USA (2017).

All wheels are hand built by our trained master builders and shipped straight to your door from your nearest build centre. All returns, crash replacements and warranty is also returned to your local build centre.
