Wider, but More light and Still Stiff
- Wide Rims – 25mm
- X-Rim Shape
- Light But More Stiff And Durable – Torayca® T800 Carbon Fiber
- Disc Brake – DT Swiss 350
- Sealed Bearings
Here we present our Ultimate Road Disc Brake Wheel Series, it is a Wide, Light and Strong wheelset. IT IS WIDE: The rim in the CX wheel is in 25mm external and 17.5mm internal width, accepts tires from 23mm to 34mm. The wider tires let you have more stability on the rough road. IT IS LIGHT: When you carry the a bike in the race, a lighter-weight wheelset saves you energy. Since we make it as light as we can to design the CX wheels by selecting the strong and light components, and of course, the precondition is not reducing it’s strength.
Torayca® T800 CARBON FIBER
Needless to say, carbon fiber material is the first and most important thing for a carbon wheel, it determines the strength and stiffness of a carbon wheel. In other words, if we want to make a high performance wheel, we have to choose the right carbon fiber.
There are several manufacturers supplying carbon fiber but as we all know in the cycling industry, Torayca is considered the best. Torayca’s carbon fiber are used in the tail of the Boeing 777 and the fuselage of the Boeing 787, as well as various types of high end sporting goods further adding to the testament of their strength and popularity across disciplines. We also choose Torayca as our exclusive supplier.
The chart below consists of data from Torayca. Basically, higher Tensile Strength makes a wheel stiffer and higher Tensile Modulus makes a wheel stronger (not easy to break)
We offer DT Swiss 350 and Novatec D771SB/D772SB as options for CX Series, Novatec D771SB/D772SB are the regular hubs of CX Series, they meet our “Affordable and Durable” standard, they are also lighter, which is 141g on the front and 275g on the rear.
Spokes – Sapim® CX-Ray Straight Pull
CX-Ray are the best aero spokes in the world, weighting as light as titanium spokes all the while providing the best results in fatigue testing. The article below from Sapim® describe the features of this spoke very well: Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. The middle section of the spoke is drawn then pressed in a special mold to form its specific profile. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world. Even downhillers use them, recognizing their strength and flexibility. Special alloy treatment and sophisticated production make this all possible. The CX-Ray fits is all standard hub holes. Ref.: http://sapim.be/spokes/aero/cx-ray For better lateral stiffness, we build the front wheel with 2X crossing and rear wheel with 3X crossing.
We build the CX Series with Sapim Secure Lock nipples, Secure Lock technology prevents nipples from loosing, which saves the maintainance of spokes.
