WE CAN HANDLE THE HEAT...

(ACTUALLY WE GUARANTEE IT)

Why has it taken us so long to release a road wheel? 

The answer lies in the number one issue plaguing the carbon rim brake clincher rim. ~HEAT~

All brakes generate heat. Not an issue with disc brakes, rim brakes are a bit of a  different story though. Carbon rims are made from carbon fibre, and epoxy resin. And when epoxy resin gets hot, it melts! Add to that a tyre full of approximately 100 psi of air, that is also getting hot and increasing the pressure on the wall of the rim, and you have created quite a challenge. 

For us, near enough is not good enough! Our rims now use a resin with such heat resistance it is a challenge to get them up to curing temperature! Each rim takes around 5 times longer to cure than our MTB rim. 

THE RESULT:

We guarantee the braking surface of our rims will not deform from excessive heat. EVER!

(under normal circumstances within intended usage of course)

 

LET'S ROLL!

AND ROLL, AND ROLL, AND ROLL... 

Our new Zelvy road hub stays true to our core values of performance and quality to improve your riding experience. Standard with ceramic hybrid bearings. Anodised black then polished these hubs look and perform like hubs that normally cost more than our entire wheelset!

MAKE THEM YOURS

Choose your rim profile, your decal colour and spoke nipple colour. Built custom to order, or we carry stock of wheels with standard titanium coloured nipples.

(Allow approximately 10 - 14 days for us to hand build your wheels).

AERO PROFILE, TUBELESS READY.

Just like our MTB and BMX rims, our road rims are also tubeless ready. A breeze to mount tyres even with tubes. 

NICE AND WIDE

With an Internal width of 17.5mm ready for 25 or even 28c tyres. 25mm wide at the brake pad, bulging out to 28.5mm at the widest point. Modern teardrop shape slices the wind, and steers great in a cross winds. 

DEAD SEXY

Look carefully at our rim brake rim and you are sure to notice the blood red hue of the high temp resin hiding our trademark marble finish.

The disc brake rim is far from subtle. Sexy as hell, almost mesmerising. Pure class. Because if you are going to have the best performing wheels on the planet, they may as well look amazing too!

 

THAT PRICE!

HOW DO WE DO IT?

The price is good isn't it!?

But that doesn't mean we have compromised the quality. So how do we do it? We sell straight from us, straight to you. Eliminating the 20% or 30%  the retailer takes, and the other 20% to 30% the distributor takes too.

Our outstanding warranty is testament to the quality of our road wheels. If you want to pay more, please let us know :)
