Some speak about world records, we speek about a low weight! …at the end we all want the same, a low weight wheelset. Our Skyliner Disc is so light, one tends to get addicted to the acceleration.

Bearings

We use standard bearings. This means you can also buy bearings in Australia if you need to. Ours are just a little special, with two main differences:

  • Our bearings have a higher fat filling grade. 30% is standard, whilst ours are filled to 50%. This not only prolongs their life, but also provides a better seal.
  • Standard bearings have variations in play from their production.
Tune bearings have the play specially determined dependent on their use. One single Tune bearing is not standard – the bearing in the free-wheel body on the left. It is constructed specifically to withstand high forces and last extra long.

Sapim CX-Ray

The SAPIM CX-Super Spoke are lightest steel spoke ever made. The SAPIM CX-Super Spoke has been developed for extra light wheels. A new grade of stainless steel enables SAPIM to reduce the diameter of the spoke, whilst increasing its strength and fatigue resistance. Effectively, the SAPIM CX-Super is 17% lighter than the SAPIM CX-Ray and its strength is increased by 120N in the middle section versus that of the SAPIM CX-Ray.

Carbon wrapping

The spoke crossings are wrapped with Carbon fibre, which gets strengthened with resin. This increases the wheel quality. The result is that the spoke construction becomes more stable, several components are connected to one stiff, long lasting unit. The increased stiffness leads to a more direct reaction when riding out of the saddle and enables precise steering. In the case of an overload, e.g. by a shock, the most stressed spoke gets released by the spoke it is wrapped with.
