Not All Carbon are Created Equal
We built our wheels with aerospace grade carbon fiber, the same material that goes into airplanes and F1 race cars.
There is none of the “one size fits all” kind of composite material. Different types of carbon fiber and resins with different types of properties are used to build our carbon rims.
SPECIAL TUBELESS PROFILES
Modified and Optimized for Wider Tires
As disc brakes and rim brake frames diverge in design and capacity, we started with a clean slate and completely redesigned our disc brake rims from the ground up. Not bounded by convention or compromises in design, we are able to create new tubeless rims optimized for disc brake.
Optimized for wider tires for improved rolling resistance and rider comfort, rim profile has been modified and evolved to adapt to the wider tires.
RaHD BRAKING SURFACE
Rapid Heat Dissipation Braking Surface
We never forget our roots and how we got here, our relentless obsession to create the best carbon fiber rims that can withstand constant braking and the resulting heat. RaHD was designed by using cutting edge technology to dissipate heat and lower temperature caused by continued hard braking on descents. TLR rims rely on very precise tolerances for the tire to hold an airtight seal.
This breakthrough in carbon fiber technology keeps the temperature around 120˚C on the brake track for TLR rim to function and maintain the crucial airtight seal even under constant braking, providing perfect handling, performance and safety at all times.
Better Aerodynamics, Faster Speed
Building on top of aero performance of previous generation of wheelsets and hundreds of hours combined in the wind tunnel and constant testing through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), the new wheels are lighter and more aero.
With a typical rider facing head wind at a lower yaw angle (angles between 0-10°). We optimized our new rims to have lower wind resistance and therefore better aerodynamic performance within a lower yaw angle range of, which is a typical cyclist experiences average yaw angles range for more than 70% of the time he spends on the road, regardless of where he is riding.
Quick engagement hubs for near instant engagement hubs with top of the line quality bearings helps keep the wheels spinning smoothly no matter what kind of terrain you ride in.
