Carbon profile wheels require a valve extender (included) in order to inflate the tire. Install the valve extender onto the tire valve stem before installing the tire on the rim, making sure the extender is firmly attached and properly sealed to prevent air loss.
Do not use any other valve extender than the one supplied. Carbon Profile wheels should be used with 700c diameter tires only. Tubular rims can accommodate 24-28mm tire widths while clincher rims can
Accommodate 25-28c width tires DO NOT use wider or narrower tires as you risk rim/tire damage or an accident may occur. Carbon wheels should not be used for cyclocross (or off paved surfaces) or tandems.
The rider weight limit for all-carbon models (tubular and clincher) is 100 kg.
A component that squeaks or rattles can be a sign of potential problems. Make sure all mating surfaces, components are clean, all bolt threads are greased or treated with appropriate thread lock and tightened to Profile Design specifications and all components are properly sized to fit together.
If you continue to experience creaking or sounds using the Profile Design component then call Customer Service tel 952207347. Periodically examine all surfaces of this Profile Design component (after cleaning) in full sun for any small cracks or “spot” wear. stress” (such as welds, seams, holes, points of contact with other parts, etc.).
If there are cracks, no matter how small, stop using the part immediately and call customer service.
Whenever you install any new component on your bike, be sure to safely ride or ride close to home (with your helmet), where there are no obstacles or traffic.
Make sure everything is working properly before you go out or go for a run.
Racing (road, mountain or multi-sport) places extreme stress on bikes and their components (as it does on cyclists) and significantly shortens their lifespan.
If you participate in these types of events, the life of the product can be significantly shortened depending on the level and number of races. The “normal use” of a component can differ greatly between competitive and non-competitive uses, this is the reason why at the professional level they frequently use new bicycles and components each season, in addition to having their bicycles serviced by professional mechanics.
Special attention should be paid to regularly checking your bike and its components to ensure their safety.
A number of factors can reduce the life of this component to less than its warranty period. Rider size and/or intensity and style, high mileage, rough terrain, abuse, installation, sweat, improper adverse environmental conditions (such as salty air or corrosive rain), trip damage (especially if the bike and components are disassembled and then reassembled) and collisions or accidents can contribute to the reduction of the life of these wheels. The more factors that are present, the more the life of the component is reduced.
All warnings and care instructions that refer to metal parts apply doubly to carbon fiber parts (with the exception of corrosion), as they are very delicate and can easily be damaged during use or shipping.
The use of a torque wrench is highly recommended as it is very easy to over or under tighten any carbon part and avoid the result of cracked parts or worse, a part that breaks during use.
The edge should be routinely checked for cracks, wear marks, surface deterioration, delamination, finish chipping or carbon chipping and especially when it is a carbon component or contacts where it mates to a non-carbon component. Once the surface of a carbon part is compromised it can break. Do not apply lubricant to any carbon surface where it comes in contact with another carbon or metal part. After an accident parts of carbon may be fractured since carbon does not bend like a piece of metal. However, they can still be fixed and must be replaced. Call customer service and ask about our “Accident Replacement Policy”.
Normal wear and tear on the wheel(s) and wheel components is not covered by the warranty. These components may include (but are not limited to): rims, spokes, nipples, bearings, pawls, and hubs.
