A system for speed
A precision one-piece carbon system that gives you more
speed with more control in every situation. The goal by developing the Silverton SL Cross Country wheelset was to build the fastest and lightest wheel possible. The Syncros engineers studied lateral and torsional stiffness, as well as mass distribution, to come up with the optimal carbon layup. They developed a one piece mold with a unique tensioning process to provide a one piece rim, spoke and spider construction which weighs just 1290 grams in total.
Lateral stiffness = More precise steering & faster cornering
Lateral stiffness is crucial for handling and control. The goal with the Silverton SL was not just more stiffness but also balanced stiffness left to right. Lateral stiffness in the Silverton SL is most impacted by 2 unique features. Unlike traditional spoke fixation the Silverton SL`s spokes are bonded directly to the rim and pull from the opposite side of the hub and rim.
Spoke tension contributes to the lateral stiffness of the wheel. As a result of the one-piece molded construction and the unique pre straining process Synros can archeive higher spoke tension than other carbon wheels.
Torsional stiffness = Faster acceleration
Torsional stiffness is primarily influenced by spoke construction. There are two key factors that must be considered:
Fiber continuity - The more continuous fiber that is utilized in the construction the higher the torsional stiffness. With the SL`s one-piece construction a single spoke actually runs from rim to rim.
Spoke cross - With its one-piece construction the SL`s spokes are actually woven at the intersection. This has the effect of shortening the spokes and stiffening them between hub and rim.
Lightweight = Low inertia = Faster acceleration, more responsiveness & quicker deceleration
Weight and weight distribution are key criteria for imptoved performance. Not only is the Silverton SL lighter and stiffer thanks to the one-piece construction but Syncros have also managed to centralize the mass by creating weight savings in the rim and spokes. This construction means a lighter wheel with a lighter inertia.
