ASYMMETRY BEGETS SYMMETRY

The asymmetric design of the Control rim offers some subtle but important benefits. With the spokes offset to one side of the rim, this allows us to reduce the spoke offset that usually occurs at the hub. In turn, this means we can generate greater bracing angles for the spokes between the hub and rim, while also minimizing the spoke tension differential that often occurs between drive- and non-drive side spokes. The end result is a wheel that is stronger, laterally stiffer, more durable, and in the case of the Control, allows us to utilize the same length spoke throughout the whole wheelset.

MINIMUM WEIGHT, MAXIMUM DURABILITY, EASY SERVICEABILITY

Striking a no-hassle balance between low weight and low maintenance, we chose DT Swiss 350 Classic hubs (15x110mm thru-axle front, 12x148mm thru-axle rear) as the basis for the Control Carbon wheels. With sealed bearings, a notoriously durable 36-tooth ratchet, and 28 spokes front and rear, dependability is assured.

QUALITY THROUGHOUT, FROM HUB TO SPOKE TO NIPPLE TO RIM

There is absolutely no point in laying up an awesome rim and pairing it with a quality hub, only to skimp on spokes and nipples. So, keeping strength and dependability foremost in our minds, we opted to hold the Control Carbon wheel together with the best: DT Swiss Competition Race spokes and alloy Pro Lock nipples.

How we made it

LAB TESTING
LAB TESTING

Design. Prototype. Test. Test again. Every step of the Control design and prototyping process leads to this; thousands of hours of grueling lab tests—simulating exaggerated real world forces – generating relevant data regarding strength, stiffness, weight, and other critical measures. We compare our test data to all the relevant wheels we’ve made in the past, and to every respected wheel in the market. The result? Control wheels excel in both qualitative and quantitative test results.

FIELD TESTING: NAME THAT PRO
FIELD TESTING: NAME THAT PRO

Annika Langvad, Jaroslav Kulhavý, Christopher Blevins, Simon Andreasson, Alan Hatherly and many other top pros have tested (and won on) Control SL Team LTD wheels. Their continual feedback from prototype through production enables us to perpetually improve the performance of our products. All the victories they’ve racked up - UCI world championships, Olympics, and UCI worlds cups - are the ultimate proof of concept.
