POWER OF TRIANGLES
FASTER TO ACCELERATE
LOW ROTATIONAL INERTIA
Unique wheel design distributes mass closer to the hub for faster acceleration and deceleration.
STRONGER AND STIFFER
TWINPAIR SPOKE TECHNOLOGY
Designed using the strongest shape in construction, the triangle, to maximize strength and stiffness.
Single spoke length: easy to true and replaceable without removing tire.
The perfect balance of width and weight allows maximum traction for a wide range of tire widths.
OPTIMAL TIRE PROFILES
Increased air volume for better cushioning.
Maximum tread contact improves traction for braking, climbing and cornering.
Significant weight modifications through material reductions in key areas including bearings, end caps, hub shell, freehub and axle.
