“System wheels” versus consequent improving
Admittedly, system wheels look cool. Is this a reason to live with fundamental compromises, though? One example is the number of spokes: too little spokes force you to stop your ride in case one spoke breaks. On top of that, special design spokes and nipples are hard to substitute when you are not at home. We are convinced it is not worth the risk. Whether our wheels are less stiff and heavier? For sure they are not. The design of the Syntace MX-Series build upon the experience in building wheels for more than 100 years.
The spoke tensions of the rear wheel are different looking at the right and the left side. The only logical consequence is to design the spokes more solidly on the side that is stressed more. This is where the “BalancedSpokes” concept comes into play. Syntace here uses 0.3 mm thicker spokes that are able to carry 45 % more weight. The result is higher load capacity, less maintenance and no extra weight.
The rims are designed asymmetrically, meaning the holes are ordered in a particular way and adapted to the spoke angle. 32 triple butted round Syntace spokes are combined with Aluminum nipples and assembled by experienced hands.
…for example with Schwalbe tubeless rim tape.
Low rolling resistance revolution
Low rolling resistance tires with thin carcasses make for efficient riding dynamics only on wide rims. This is the reason why Syntace rims are extra wide and yet light.
More efficient than Helium
Combined with weight-reduced tires that feature a thinner carcass, the Syntace MX-Series wheelsets are up to 600 g lighter than common rim/ tire combinations while they are still approved for riders with up to 110 kg.
Mix and match
Ordering a wheelset, you may combine any Syntace MX-Series front wheel with any MX-Series rear wheel. Thanks to the easy changing of the hub end caps, Syntace wheels are compatible with all axle standards on the market. No matter which combination you choose, the price remains the same at all times: unbeatable 888,- € for the wheelset.
Suitable for PROCORE
Syntace wheels are suitable for PROCORE, the double chamber tire system we developed in cooperation with Schwalbe Tires.
