Front wheel, that is distinctly different where it matters!
The Syntace W25 MX front wheel is exactly as wide as a conventional CC / marathon wheel with 25 mm external width. Possessing an equal width to conventional XC wheels. For riders that choose to ignore the advantages of wide rims and primary focus is on minimizing weight.
Asymmetrical Syntace W-Series MX rim with custom drilling and spoke angle matched hub flange. 28 Sapim CX Ray bladed spokes, triple crossed, Sapim alloy nipples. Hand lacing quality.
With Yellow-tape and prepared for tubeless systems.
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 were just possible to bend sufficiently lightweight rims. It‘s 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:
Approved for a rider weight up to 100 kg. Recommended for a max. tyre width of 2.1” for CC/Marathon riders who put weight saving before ride quality.
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 which are made of high strength 7075 alloy, featured by a test machine optimized dimensioning and they are spoke angle matched.
It's strong heart the butted 17 oversize axle as well as the intelligent bearing positioning provide maximum stiffness and life span at lightest possible weight. Adaptable to all current axle standards by simply changing the end caps.
HiTorque MX Front 15
- 17 mm oversize axle
- two double sealed 26x17x5 precision cartridge bearings
- Disc brake interface: 6 bolt standard
- 15 mm and QR axle standard by swapping end caps
