ALPINIST CLX IN THE MEDIA

"Climbing is where the wheels really excel and I have been loving (possibly not the best word) smashing some of my local climbs. The wheels are stiff enough to transfer the power when you really want to kick on the steeper pitches, and I found them perfect for these high-powered efforts, with no discernible flex."

How we made it

Composites Shop
Composites Shop

To optimize the strength and weight of our rims, we define exactly where we need to place carbon fiber, what type of carbon to utilize, and the orientation of the fiber. The final layup schedule defined during prototyping in our California composites lab becomes the guide used when the wheels reach the production stage. It’s part hard number crunching; part black art; and part, test, destroy, redesign and repeat until we reach our goal.

Testing
Testing

Good design only gets you so far. We are relentless in our testing. Days on end spent in our wind tunnel, hour upon grueling hour in the test lab, field testing, and the explosive power of World Tour professionals all contribute to bringing our wheels to life. Every step of the way we seek the fastest, lightest, best handling, smoothest riding path. Once our wheels have proven themselves across all these criteria, and survived these arenas, they are ready for you.
