Front wheel, that is distinctly different where it matters!
The Syntace W30 MX wheel with an external width of 30 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 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:
For XC racers with the advantage of wider rims: faster and safer to the finish line. Also a light weight trail and All Mountain wheel set.
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 25 mm oversize axles 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.
