WHAT IS SDM?
SDM is a Speed and Durability Maximized carbon wheelset, which is designed and hand-built for you offering world-class performance at one-third cost.
The carbon SDM rim lies at the heart of the ride: it’s wide, aerodynamic, light, stiff and tubeless ready, it also has a high-performance ceramic braking surface with a heat resistance of 255 Degrees C (TG).
The overall quality and integrity of our product means we offer a fully inclusive 2-year warranty, including on the braking surface. The use of top class spokes, renowned OEM hubs and the fitting of ceramic bearings as standard underline our commitment to offer a product that is fast, durable and reliable.

HOW STIFF IS IT?
Why stiff? Simply put, a stiff wheelset makes you pedal and corner more efficiently, feel instant power transfer when accelerating. We improve the wheel stiffness by the following ways:
UNIQUE HUB DESIGN
From the aspect of geometry, a wheel with our SDM hub is made as laterally stiff as possible, as it’s Center to Right Flange distance is designed to be 16.2mm, which is the same as DT Swiss 240S. Click for more details.
HIGH SPOKE TENSION
We usually build our rear wheels with 20 to 30kgf higher spoke tension than others. Click for more SDM rim tech details.
HOW STRONG IS IT?
Strength is the base to make the wheelset strong, so we reinforce all the right places for the wheelset:
- We apply two extra layers of carbon to the spoke hole wall, which increases the durability of the brake track by 20%.
- Our Clincher rims also include two extra layers of carbon on each of the braking walls, ensuring that they’re capable of handling up to 20% more strain than the usual brakes.
HOW IS THE AERO PERFORMANCE?
The SDM rim has the most advanced U shape profile, the wider U shape has been proven to have more stability in windy condition.
HOW IS THE SMOOTHNESS?
Smooth is Fast. So we integrate 2 front and 4 rear Ceramic Bearings into SDM Hubs. Ceramic Bearings are much smoother than steel ones, Why? It’s simply because they are closer to perfect round and stiffer.

So usually it takes us up to 5 days to ship your order out after your order.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED PACKAGING FOR WORLDWIDE SHIPPING
In order to protect the products from the impact during the long distance shipping, we designed a special box for our bike wheels, it has strong inside structure to hold the wheels tight, and keep a buffer zone between wheels and outer box.
The wheels are 30 degree aligned by 2 covers(top and bottom), which has 2 benefits:
1. It creates a buffer room for wheels, so they don’t contact each other directly.
2. It makes the box smaller, which save a little for our environment.
Besides the specially designed packing, for every order shipped by us, we purchase insurance, because we just want to make the whole purchasing system 100% save for our customers. In case there is destruction to the package or loss, in the course of shipment, you will get recompense. If there is partial destruction to the items, we will submit cash for fixing.
Please kindly take photos for proof in case you believe the items are destroyed when you obtain them. If the items are lost, we will initiate another shipping of similar items immediately.
2015 records indicate that incidents of destruction and loss are none; this is because we pack the products extremely efficiently, with package, which is particularly designed.
