Front wheel, that is distinctly different where it matters!
The Syntace W40 MX Boost wheel with an external rim width of 40 mm is really wide and also extremely lightweight. Because light weight tires with thinner side walls that roll better only really start to show good all-round performance when mounted to wide rims, without reduced puncture resistance.
Asymmetrical Syntace W-Series MX rim with custom drilling and spoke angle matched hub flange. 32 butted spokes, triple crossed, Sapim alloy nipples. Hand lacing quality.
Black aluminium instead of carbon:
The ductile material aluminium has its rightful place in two finger wide rims rolling over sharp rocks, roots and steps. If it was just possible to make sufficiently lightweight rims. It is possible.
Lightweight and tougher than carbon rims:
Thanks to the Syntace precision profile made of a custom high strength alloy, welded and multiply cold worked and heat treated. Stress reducing asymmetrical Syntace W-Series profile design with side step drilling pattern.
360° Syntace ToughSkin:
All round, meaning even inside the bead hook, the rims are shot peened for increased surface density. This cold working process of the aluminium not only achieves a measurable increase in material surface hardness but also creates a "grippier" surface at all tire contact areas for the tire to hold onto. This reduces the the likelihood of the tire to move on the rim under large loads, especially when riding with low air pressure. And reduces the likelihood of tearing off a valve.
Recommended range of application:
Best handling characteristics combined with fast rolling. Previously unheard combination of fast rolling and traction control for all application from tour to trail up to all mountain. Suitable for rider weight up to 110 kg.
HiTorque MX Hub
One of the toughest hubs on climbs and descents. The heart of the Syntace wheels are the Syntace developed and manufactured Syntace Hi-Torque MX hubs (Pat, pend.). Finest turning and machining craftsmanship, inconspicuous appearance, but with superior inner qualities.
The robust flanges are made of high strength 7075 alloy, feature test machine optimized dimensions and are spoke angle matched.
Its strong heart, the oversize axle as well as the intelligent bearing positioning provide maximum stiffness and life span at lightest possible weight.
