Wheelset 28" Disc RR | DT Swiss 240 EXP Road Straightpull Center Lock hubs | MCFK carbon rims
Area of intended use : Road bike RR
Road cyclists are looking for the best compromise between weight, aerodynamics and stiffness. The combination of MCFK carbon rims and indestructible DT Swiss hubs should therefore always be on the shortlist. The balanced selection of components guarantees you high reliability and a long service life.
Lighter, stiffer, more precise and easier to maintain - these are the strengths of the newly launched DT Swiss 240 hubs. These properties were achieved through the Ratchet EXP technology. With this, the hubs not only get by with fewer components and thus lower weight and less wear, it also allows the bearing on the drive side to be placed significantly further out. The larger distance between the bearings results in a higher rigidity of the hub, a lower bearing load and thus greater durability. The stiffness on the hub body serves to distribute the load more evenly on the spokes. Driving and braking forces are transmitted even better from both spoke flanges to all spokes. Unilateral peak loads are prevented, which protects the hub, spokes and rim. The super reliable toothed disc freewheel system with its large contact surface and 36 locking points ensures extremely direct and reliable power transmission.
With this light, stable and beautifully finished carbon rim from the lightweight specialist from Leipzig, you can significantly upgrade your racer. It offers an exclusive and flawless look and has unique technical features. The one-piece monocoque construction avoids weak points from the outset. This makes the rim homogeneous, very resistant and saves weight. MCFK has opted for classic rim flanges with hooks. As a result, the tires sit securely in the rim bed at all times, even at high air pressures. The Saxons go their own way when it comes to making spoke holes. They are not drilled afterwards, which would negatively affect stability and durability, but are laminated. In addition, the nipple seat has been preformed and compacted and ensures a perfect fit, especially of DT Swiss and Sapim nipples. The asymmetrical cross-section of the rim enables very even spoke tension, which further increases the rigidity of the entire wheel. And with its enormous inner width of 21 mm, it also gives wider tires an optimally round shape and thus the best prerequisites for extra grip and comfort. Of course, you can also ride tubeless with a separately available tubeless kit.
Impeller construction at R2-Bike
Our wheels are assembled entirely by hand by our wheel builders. During the entire construction, it is important that not only the concentricity is right, but also that the spoke tension is as even as possible. The special care allows us to give a lifetime guarantee against broken spokes, as long as this is not caused by violence!
You will also receive the following services with our wheels:
A universal impeller bag for all common sizes.
A spare spoke + nipple in all required spoke lengths to be able to repair the impeller at short notice even after an accident.
A free initial check of the impeller, where the resulting work is completely free! Only shipping costs are charged.
A crash replacement promise. If your wheel is damaged due to force majeure, we will rebuild your wheel once. We grant a 100% discount on all labor costs and only charge for the material!
