The initial drive for this project was to find a way to have automation provide 100% accurate quality control and to make a superior rim. Filament winding was part of that solution. Multiple patents have followed since 2012 including even the resin.
The rims and manufacturing technique is the result of a large R&D team of scientists, chemists, engineers, production managers, scholars, experts, designers and test riders around the globe. The project team decided it was best to do a complete rethink the process of making carbon fiber rims including the ingredients.
