A versatile MTB wheelset for speed, responsiveness and reliability on any terrain. Milled rims, a 2:1 spoke configuration and oversized hubs/flanges give Red Metal 3 the perfect combination of weight and strength for fast descents and quick climbs.
The milling process provides excellent lateral stiffness at a low weight for an agile, reactive riding feel.
MoMag Magentic Spoke guide: The spoke nipples, are inserted inside the rim through the valve hole and guided into place with a magnet. This means a uniform rim profile with no holes or weaknesses for improved strength, longevity and weight.
Variable Section Steel Spokes
These allow a very high spoke tension for maximum stiffness and reactivity.
Reduce the peripheral mass (rolling weight) of the wheel to the minimum, thus increasing its response and acceleration.
2:1 Spoke Configuration:
On the rear wheel the number of spokes on the drive side is double that of the opposite side. This gives greater stability, torsional stiffness and reactivity thanks to the perfect balance between the spoke tensions. The front wheel spokes have been doubled on the disc brake side; this keeps the wheel steady when braking.
