MCFK 35mm Carbon Clincher Disc Brake Wheelset
When compared with aluminium, carbon has the decisive advantage that it hardly changes its shape. Consequently, the runner wheel is distinctly more long-lived and less susceptible to side or radial run-out.
No two carbons are ever alike. The layer structure and the orientation of the fibers are decisive for the function and stiffness of a carbon component. Our products meet all requirements on low weight, stiffness, comfort and esthetic appearance by a complex mix of woven and non-crimp fabrics.
A very important aspect of the development was the avoidance of weak points. Whereas competitor rims are made by bonding several parts, our wheel rim is laminated and cured completely in one piece. This requires a higher level of effort but it adds stability, saves weight and makes a homogeneous rim.
The wider the rim profile, the better the lateral stiffness of the rim.
Our 26.5mm wide rim profile ensures outstanding stiffness levels of runner wheels in this weight category. Force transmission with no force loss– you will feel it, e.g. when riding out of the saddle.
The height of the rim profile decides the radial stiffness. Radial loads to which the rim is exposed on uneven ground, by bumps or bottoming are reduced by a high profile. The load on the spokes is hardly reduced, which increases the life of the structure directly. Our rims with 35 mm height are the perfect compromise of stiffness and weight. Agility riding and acceleration quick as lightning during sprints are promised.
3.5mm asymmetry are responsible that the difference hub flanges, whose position to the hub center is obviously asymmetrical, is reduced by 7 mm. The lateral spoke angle and the spoke tension on the right and the left side are adjusted by the asymmetry. Stiffness and life profit from this geometrical intervention.
18mm inside width is ideal for racing tires and cross tires with a width between 23 and 35mm. Hooks laminated in the inside flank efficiently prevent the tire from coming off the rim at high pressures or in tubeless application.
Another important advantage of our rims is the pre-compressed laminated spoke holes, which are not drilled – this means no fibers are cut through, which adds even more stability to the runner wheels. Besides, it protects the rim from spoke strip.
To ensure a perfect fit on the nipples in the rim you need the right nipple seat. The nipple seats in our rims are preformed, compressed and adapted specifically to the nipple geometry of Sapim and DT Swiss nipples.
The advantages of the tubeless technology can now be exploited to the full. Lower inflation pressure provides better grip, traction, comfort and riding pleasure. The rolling resistance is reduced and propulsion guaranteed. Our rim base is suitable for tubeless ties of all common makes.
A special design at the valve seat makes the valve head “disappear“. This technology has been developed specially for the application with tubeless tires. This makes mounting the tire with pre-installed valve a lot easier. Even non-tubeless tires are easier to fit.
By dismissing the brake flanks we are moving with the times. The future of deceleration in cycle racing and cross-country events belongs to the disc brake. No heat is transferred, for example, on long, steep downhill tracks – safety profits. Scraping noise and reduced braking in rain and muddy ground are things of the past. The rime does not wear and you can enjoy it for a long time.
