DESCRIPTION

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

Strong Durable Hub

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?

Zipp 404 VS BladeX SDM Rim Shape

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?

Hybrid Ceramic Bearings

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.
