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 two means:

UNIQUE HUB DESIGN

From the aspect of geometry, a wheel with our SDM hub is 20% stiffer than a wheel with a DT Swiss 240 hub. 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 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 18

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 19

Smooth is Fast. So we integrate 2 front and 5 rear Ceramic Bearings into SDM Hubs. Ceramic Bearings are much more smoother than steel ones, Why? It’s simply because they are closer to perfect round and stiffer.

SPECIALLY DESIGNED PACKAGING FOR WORLD WIDE 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.
