Onyx - SL Carbon Rim Series
SL CARBON RIMS SERIES
STRONG • LIGHT • AERO
// When almost every carbon rim looks alike, the devil is in the unseen. Accumulating a decade experience of wheel building with different carbon rims, the result is our SL SERIES which is not only a rim but it is one integrated system with spokes & hubs to form the fastest wheel system //
- TORAY HIGH MODULUS CARBON FIBRE
Constructed from single continuous sheets of Toray HM prepreg carbon fibre to prevent wrinkles that create points of weaknesses and uneven strength around the rim.
REINFORCED SPOKE HOLES
To eliminate the risk of nipple pull through under high tension, every spoke hole is reinforced with a carbon strip to withstand high spoke tensions. Unlike traditional carbon rims, we do not use large metal washers that add unnecessary weight.
DYNAMIC WEIGHT BALANCE
Counterweights are built in on the opposite side of the valve holes to offset the weight of the valves. This minimises vertical imbalance when the wheel spins. One no longer has to purchase expensive and unsightly counterweights to paste them on the rims.
- ANGLED SPOKE HOLES
One of the most important factors for spokes & nipples durability, we design & specify the spoke holes angles in the rims to accomodate our large spoke bracing angles - to prevent stress points in the spokes & nipples.
- BRAKING RELIABILITY
On our rim brake wheels, we developed a proprietary heat-resistant epoxy resin for the braking surface that maintains structure integrity and braking efficiency during hard braking situations.
The unique Beadlock design provides superior airtight sealing with ease of mounting tubeless tyres, and our rims are designed to maintain high precision rim wall flatness even after tyre inflation.
