BlackBurner Skyline TE (textile edition) “Innovation Eurobike 2018”

         “The Ultimate future wheel-set”

In competition, every gram counts. And who better than Tune to develop this kind of futuristic product, we’ve been developing them for racing for almost 30 years.

The TE spoke is the complete package.

Stability:

The textile spoke is made of polyethylene. Like, stockings, the spokes are knitted, and when tension is applied, the spoke material tightens up. They provide stability comparable or above, to that of steel spokes.

Stiffness:

When paired with our carbon rim, they create the perfect balance between stiffness and comfort

Weight:

100 grams is saved per 32 spokes. The difference in acceleration is noticeable and marked.

It’s like riding with a little extra help from an electric motor!

Comfort:

Less vibration, less fatigue, more comfort, more endurance.

The vibrations generated during the ride are absorbed by the spokes. The ride is quieter, and the rider spared, leaving them free to go faster, higher and further, thanks to reduced fatigue.

A practical side effect: Due to the high tension of the spokes, dry dirt can be removed with a snap of the finger (!)

Resistance:

The material and manufacturing process has been proven on sail-boats, and in all areas of mountain climbing for years, where it is similarly necessary to withstand the harshest of weather conditions.

Thus, TE spokes are absolutely shock, water and UV-resistant

We’ve just finished testing the spokes in house on our test benches, and now have to throw them at some ‘practical tests,’ where they’ll have to prove themselves under the toughest of competition conditions.

The Black Skyline TE is in development, and not quite ready for sale.
