massively different simple and beautiful, our unique wheel design is based around principles of strength, stiffness, and acceleration.


faster to accelerate low rotational inertia unique wheel design distributes mass closer to the hub for faster acceleration and deceleration.

tubeless ready hole-less rims: stronger and no rim tape required for tubeless setup.

stronger and stiffer twinpair spoke technology designed using the strongest shape in construction, the triangle, to maximize strength and stiffness.

beautifully simple single spoke length: easy to true and replaceable without removing tire.
