System wheels vs. systematic fine tuning
Agreed - system wheels look very chic. But should you have to put up with their fundamental drawbacks? For example low spoke counts, which prevent any continuation of a ride when a spoke is broken? In an emergency non readily available spokes and nipples? Heavy and less stiff wheels? We believe not. The Syntace W-series relies on the results of a wheel configuration which has proven superior for over a century.
Asymmetrical Syntace W-Series MX rims with custom drilling and spoke angle matched hub flanges. Sapim CX Ray bladed spokes, 28 per wheel, triple crossed, Sapim alloy nipples. Hand lacing quality.
for the 25 mm wide, spur geared Syntace W25-MX wheelset 26“. Approved for a rider weight of up to 100kg. Recommended for a max. tyre width of 2.1” for CC/Marathon riders who put weight saving before ride quality.
Mix and match
You can combine all available Syntace W-Series front and rear wheels, completely to your personal preference in terms of rim width, spoke count, axle standard, … simply configure, order, and assemble. By changing the end caps you can adapt your wheel to any of the current axle standards. No matter how exotic your combination is, you just pay the one regular Syntace wheelset price.
RIM W25 MX-
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 light weight rims. It is possible.
Light weight... and tougher than carbon rims
Thanks to the Syntace precission 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.
Mere 350g on the scale for the 25mm wide W25 MX rims (26”) speak a clear language. Who can compete with that?
For XC riders, for whom only weight counts and riders who use tyres of up to 2.1”.
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 tyre contact areas for the tyre to hold onto. This reduces the the likelihood of the tyre to move on the rim under large loads, especially when riding with low air pressure. And reduces the likelihood of tearing off a valve.
