Our hand-spoked wheelsets are state of the art products at a competitive price point specifically designed for cross-country and marathon racing. Super light rims with 30 or 30.6mm internal width, with the unique flat profile rimbed, are bonded with our Ixion R or SL hubs through Sapim CX Ray spokes and Polyax nipples. Weights range from 1075 to 1170 grams.
As a result of 4years designing and engineering we created the world’s lightest rims for cross-country and marathon racing at 30 or 30.6mm internal width. There are three versions: 290, 270 and 250g!
The rims are a patented design and use an epoxy instead of paint for environmental reasons. They are also approved by the EFBE testing facility in Germany to be in compliance with the ASTM Classification Level 3.
The rims are asymmetric for a more parallel triangular shape of the spokes from each side of the rim, balancing the spoke lengths and tensions to create a stronger and more reliable wheel.
The spoke holes are angled to match the angle of the spokes. This reduces the stress at the spoke head and thus less chance of breaking a spoke.
IXION Hubs and Straightpull Spokes
The Ixion hubs have been designed and developed by us. They are light, extremely well sealed and the exclusive ratchet architecture has a 45 POE engagement making a distinctive roaring sound that will make you go even faster.
Based on our reliability testing we decided to chose for straightpull spokes. They showed a significant increase in fatigue resistance, meaning a wheel will stay true, strong and trustworthy for longer.
