Japanese carbon fibre and patented Tg
Japanese carbon fiber is combined with a proprietary high Tg (a resin treated at 220°C). This compound is 30% stronger than standard resin, and the Tg+ improves braking performance by allowing consistent heat buildup and greater forgiveness. This reduces the heat responsible for decreased braking power. Compared to standard wheels, the Tg reduces stopping distance by 28%.
Semi-patented automatic lacquering
Semi-patented automatic coating is used in the manufacture of the brake track, fibre and rim. It eliminates human error in the area critical to carbon consistency and produces a more uniform rim with fewer gaps in the tubular rim. In addition, it is designed so that the centre of the track, where the tyre sits, is deeper in the bottom of the track, resulting in a more aerodynamic and safer wheel.
Finishing on the rim edge
On the rim of the hoop, a carbon finish is applied to provide a stronger, stiffer and more heat-tolerant final structure.
Assembly and quality control
The wheel is assembled by hand from start to finish, including a quality control check. In addition, Sapim CX-Ray spokes and POLYAX Secure heads are used, as well as a lock. The final quality control is carried out using Holand Pro Mechanics, the most prestigious for centring.
Core and additional features
The core has a design that increases aerodynamics, acceleration, strength and durability. Features include the use of 7001 T6 in the hub bodies and TPI sealed cartridges. The bearings offer 29% more strength compared to bearings with conventional bearings.
