The Revolution line of rims has been in development since June of 2018. The basis of the whole program was to round out a complete rim offering while implementing all that we learned about The Movement line of rims.
We've said it before, and we will repeat it, not all carbon rims are made the same way. We developed an entirely new molding process that improves on our layup processing and accuracy. The Revolution mold process allows for even more precise fiber placement and extension than our previous designs.
The all-new rim shape allowed us to reduce radial stiffness and utilize less fiber while increasing impact strengths as well. The shape combined with the layup offers a more homogenous system and provides more support to each component of the rim than ever before.
We are excited to introduce our new line up! Let the Revolution begin.
XC / GRAVEL
Purpose - With the resurgence of XC and the explosion of gravel, we had the vision to develop a rim that would offer maximum comfort and deliver the confidence for the rider who chooses the lightweight hardtail over a dually. The layup has been completely redesigned and offers high strength with the lowest radial stiffness possible. Pair this with our industry-leading out of mold tolerances, and you can bring on the long days in style!
Tires - The tires we recommend are 38c and up for gravel. For XC 2.1 - 2.25 tires would be ideal.
Weights - 345g per rim. Available in 29er only
- 1540g Hydra build with Race Spokes, 1560g 1/1 build with Race Spokes
- 1452g Hydra build with CX-Rays, 1472g 1/1 build with CX-Rays
Wheelset - All of our Revolution wheelsets are built with Industry 9 hubs and are always default 28 hole hubs. If you require something outside of the stock item, please contact us for custom builds.
*** 24h, 28h, and 32h in rim only ***
Purpose - Trail bikes with under 140mm of travel are fun weapons of choice. When it comes to wheels pairing a bike with the right tool for the job is paramount. Dressing the bike with too wide of a rim does not fit the bill for these bikes. These trail bikes need a good selection of rubber, but also need to maintain their playful nature, and this is our answer. Bring on the 27mm internal width of The Faction. A rim that punches well above its weight in overall strength, but rolls as you'd want on a trail bike. Lightweight and surprisingly strong!
Tires - The tires we recommend are a range from 2.1 - 2.5
Weights - 425g per rim. Available in 29er only
- 1720g Hydra build with Race spokes, 1740g 1/1 build with Race spokes
- 1665g Hydra build with CX-Rays, 1685g 1/1 build with CX-Rays
