Manufacturing Process

Material Prepare

We use Toray T800 carbon for the majority of the aero rim structure on the braking surface for increased stopping performance and durability.

Weight Record & QC

Layup

Each rim requires between 30-40 layers of carbon fiber prepreg. Our most experienced workers apply the prepreg by hand and the process takes 30-45 minutes for most rims.

Weight Record & QC

Molding

The full layup is placed into a proprietary 10-piece mold, the pneumatic core is pressurized, and the carbon is cured at high temperature for 45 minutes.

Weight Record & QC

Drilling

All rims are drilled with a high speed CNC machine. We use a computer controlled drilling machine to customize spoke hole position and angle to improve power transfer to the wheel.

Smoothening

LExtra resin that has wicked away during the curing process is removed, and the spoke holes are deburred.

Finishing

Rim graphics are applied, and a clear coat is applied (if applicable to protect waterslide decals). Glossy, Satin, and Matte finishes, and customized graphics are available.

Final QC Check:

In additional to the standard QC check, we also check roundness (must be within 0.2mm), flatness (within 0.15mm) and with some products the tire pressure check is performed.

Wheelset Buliding

All wheels are laced and trued by hand. There are needs at least 4~5 stress relieve rounds during the process.

Packing

In additional to the standard QC check, we also check roundness (must be within 0.2mm), flatness (within 0.15mm) and with some products the tire pressure check is performed.

Shipping

We have several options for shipping depending on your warehouse location. We partner with EMS, DHL, TPD(tax included), Fedex, and UPS.
