The Climbing Stage
The FSE carbon fiber method makes our rims more than 40% stronger than any other layup carbon fiber rim. At only 1305 grams in weight this 26.65MM wide they will give you remarkable control at high speed. This is the sweet spot of climbing yet very aero wheels.
Norman Alvis: “Today I rode the 35mm wheels. They really surprised me. They feel very quick and I can hardly wait to race on them. The funny thing is the feel, like they roll really fast. I actually set a strava all time record on a downhill! This is not an out of the way segment either. It’s not long but I felt so stable at speed (max of 48 mph) that I had no problem giving full gas at high speed. I’m eager to feel how they sprint in a race.” Strava: https://www.strava.com/activities/732456552 – KOM set

Filament Spin Evolution
Next Gen Carbon Fiber - Computer Controlled Carbon fibers are bathed in resin before spinning around a proprietary mandrel resulting in 100% efficiency and maximum quality.
Less is Lighter! 100% accuracy in our carbon fiber process means less resin and material waste.
Stronger & Stiffer
MORE CONTROL. FSE Wheels are uncanny in their cornering performance due to their lateral stiffness thanks to the Filament Spin Evolution carbon process. HIGH SPEED WOBBLE is practically eliminated. SHARP CORNERING now feels effortless.
º240C Hi Temp Brakes
SAFER. High Temperature resin and stronger carbon allows for excellent heat handling and dissipation.
Filament Spin Evolution method carbon fiber is a far more energy efficient way to build carbon fiber. Only one oven process is used. The FSE method also produces much less waste as it is computer controlled to 100% quality.
Make it Tubeless!
Our tubeless option geometry is ready for the toughest CX, Gravel, Adventure challenges you can throw at them! Add our “no rim bed spoke holes” option for the ultimate seal and strength.
This option is best if:
- you prefer to run with no rim tape in standard clinchers
- your prefer a tighter seal for running a tubeless system
- you prefer slightly more adding strength to the overall rim
This is a custom option will add about 30 days to your delivery time.
Yes, it is a bit more of a pain to build these wheels. Yes, your local bike shop may charge you more should you ever need repairs post warranty period.
