Extrem light weight carbon disc wheelset
Lovingly made in Leipzig with DT Swiss 240s hubs, straight pull spokes and the outstanding Mcfk road bike rims with 35mm profile height.
The road wheels are manufactured manually in an elaborate process with meticulous perfection by Mcfk´s own wheel specialist. Before shipment, each wheel is checked again. Perfect true running and the uniform tension of all spokes are of particular importance.
- Carbon for the rim
In contrast with aluminium, the advantage of carbon is that it stays in form. Thus, recentering, height and lateral runouts are things of the past. Once spoked properly, the wheel will not change shape or run.
- Multiple layer design
No two types of carbon are alike. The layer design is the decisive aspect - the orientation of the fiber is the most important thing in any part made of carbon. For this reason, Mcfk use a complex mixture of fabric and unidirectional (UD) layers which are positioned exactly in the right direction to ensure that they get the best performance of the material and leave no potential unused.
- Monocoque design
Avoiding weak points was one of the central focal points in the development. Whereas Mcfks competitors make the rim by bonding several parts together, theire rim is laminated of a single piece and cured. This involves a higher input of time and effort and requires extensive know-how but adds stability, saves weight and produces a homogeneous rim.
- 26.5 mm outside width
The wider the rim profile, the higher the lateral stiffness of the wheel. The flexural rigidity increases disproportionately (to the third power) of the width of the profile. Mcfks oversize rim profile on downhill rim level obtains stiffness never before attained with wheels of this weight class.
- 35 mm height
The height of the rim profile decides the radial stiffness. Radial loads to which the rim is exposed on uneven ground, by bumps or bottoming are reduced by a high profile. The load on the spokes is hardly reduced, which increases the life of the structure directly. The rims with 35 mm height are the perfect compromise of stiffness and weight. Agility riding and acceleration quick as lightning during sprints are promised.
- 3.5 mm asymmetry
A very important aspect of the outstanding stability of Mcfks wheels is the distinct asymmetry of 3.5 mm. 3.5 mm asymmetry is the reason why the difference of the inevitably non-symmetrical position of the hub flanges to the hub center is reduced by 7 mm.
This ensures uniform spoke tension on both sides of the wheel.
- 18 mm inside width
Ideal for racing tires and cross tires with a width between 23 and 35mm. Hooks laminated in the inside flank efficiently prevent the tire from coming off the rim at high pressures or in tubeless application.
- Rim flange with extra stability
The unique ratio of outside and inside widths also adds extra stability, width and solidity to the wheel flange. Bottoming - the enemy of any light-weight rim - need no longer be dreaded and so the life of Mcfks carbon rims is extended.
- Laminated spoke holes
Another very important advantage of their rims is the pre-compacted, laminated spoke holes, which are not drilled. This means no cutting of fibers, high spoke tension and therefore even more stability for the wheels.
Besides, it gives the rim reliable protection from spoke tear-out in the case of a fall. You simply have to replace a couple of spokes but never the complete wheel.
- Preformed ball head nipple tip
To ensure a perfect fit of the nipples in the rim, they need the right nipple seat. Because Mcfk do not drill the spike holes but compress and laminate them, they can shape a perfect ball head in the rim.
- Tubeless-type rim well
The advantages of the tubeless technology can now be exploited to the full. Lower inflation pressure provides better grip, traction, comfort and riding pleasure. The rolling resistance is reduced and propulsion guaranteed. Mcfk's rim base is suitable for tubeless ties of all common makes.
- Integrated valve design
A special design at the valve seat makes the valve head "disappear". This technology has been developed specially for the application with tubeless tires. This makes mounting the tire with pre-installed valve a lot easier. Even non-tubeless tires are easier to fit.
- Disc only
By dismissing the brake flanks Mcfk are moving with the times. The future of deceleration in cycle racing and cross-country events belongs to the disc brake. No heat is transferred, for example, on long, steep downhill tracks - safety profits. Scraping noise and reduced braking in rain and muddy ground are things of the past. The rime does not wear and you can enjoy it for a long time.
- Maximum system weight: 125 kg!
DT Swiss 240s Staightpull hub - 24 holes
Swiss precision engineering, machining and assembly together with clever detail solutions have made of the 240 what it is today: A legend.
Featuring the latest refinements the 240 hubs are extremely lightweight and extremely durable. The Ratchet System is the best solution for a freewheel system, since it can transfer high loads while being super light. Just what athletes want: Perfect transmission of their power and the reliability allowing them to focus on the ride.
