The Reactor wheel features an entirely new Carbon/Kevlar layup and epoxy that maximizes strength and dynamic feel, while reducing the chance of cracking a rim on a sharp rock. The rim is molded into an asymmetrical profile that produces nearly even tension in the spokes from side to side on the hub. This results in a stronger wheel with a very balanced feel when riding, but still maintains the weight reduction riders are looking for. Finally, we designed the rims with a smooth rim bed that allows for tubeless tire setup without needing tape. This wheel construction requires hand building, but allows for spoke replacement with any standard straight pull spoke in the event of a broken spoke.
We then designed and built a hubset to our exact needs to make a complete wheelset. This hubset features forged alloy components and precision bearings for smooth running and reliability. The hubs are modular so they will accommodate multiple axle types, freehub bodies, and even disc types. The front hub is our universal design and can accommodate both standard and boost spacing. The rear hubs feature a larger 17mm rear axle to resist bending under heavy drops and hits. Finally, we use forged spokes made by Sapim to our requirements, but we cut them to length and roll the threads ourselves. All of this results in a superior wheelset that will give you many miles of worry free riding anywhere you choose to ride.
