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 ***

TRAIL

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

Wheelset - All of our Revolution wheelsets are built with Industry 9 hubs and are always default 32 hole hubs. If you require something outside of the stock item, please contact us for custom builds

*** 28h and 32h in rim only ***

PLUS / ENDURO

Purpose - The Convert is the answer to a wider format rim that gives the ultimate stability and traction. Perfectly suited for clunker hardtails and plus bikes where larger tires are the game. With such a large tire contact patch, you'll never need to worry about losing traction. Try them, you will become converted!

Tires - The tires we recommend are a range from 2.5 - 3.0

Weight - 495g for the 27.5 and  515g for the 29er

     - 1870g 27.5 Hydra build with Race spokes, 1890g 27.5 1/1 build with Race spokes


     - 1780g 27.5 Hydra build with CX-Rays, 1800g 1/1 build with CX-Rays

     - 1890g 29 Hydra build with Race spokes, 1910g 29 1/1 build with Race spokes


     - 1800g 29 Hydra build with CX-Rays, 1820g 29 1/1 build with CX-Rays

ENDURO / AM

 

Purpose There were 3 main points that went into The Union. We wanted a rim that was lighter than The Agent, had lower radial stiffness than anything we'd made before, and gain a dramatic increase in impact resistance. With our new philosophy on layup design and these key points, we were able to achieve something truly impressive. This rim is made for those who want to race Enduro at a high level and ride harder than ever before. If you have ever had doubts about carbon rims, look no further than The Union.

Tires - The tires we recommend are a range from 2.35 - 2.8


Weight - 485g for the 27.5 and 495g for the 29er

 - 1840g 27.5 Hydra build with Race spokes, 1860g 27.5 1/1 build with Race spokes


  - 1745g 27.5 Hydra build with CX-Rays, 1765g 1/1 build with CX-Rays

  - 1860g 29 Hydra build with Race spokes, 1880g 29 1/1 build with Race spokes

  - 1770g 29 Hydra build with CX-Rays, 1790g 29 1/1 build with CX-Rays
