Building high-performance wheels requires accuracy, consistency, and durability. When it comes to wheel building, Venn carbon rims incorporate several essential features that impact the quality and lifespan of the assembled wheels. Designed specifically for wheel building businesses and experts, our rims are built to deliver the highest level of performance and reliability.
Accurate and Customized Spoke Hole Drilling
Spoke hole drilling is an essential step and correct drilling minimizes strain on spokes and nipples, extending their lifespan. Venn carbon rims offer accurate and customized spoke hole drilling, which takes into consideration the spoke pattern and the hub geometry. This ensures the optimal spoke exit angles, which results in a stronger and more durable wheel.
High Rim Stiffness
High rim stiffness is an important feature that maintains the shape of the rim as it is being tensioned by the spokes and as the tire is being inflated. Venn carbon rims offer high rim stiffness, which prevents the need to readjust spoke tension after the wheels are destressed, and ensures that the wheel remains true, even during high-speed or aggressive riding. Rim stiffness also contributes to a more responsive ride and improved power transfer, making it an essential feature for performance-focused riders.
Lateral and Radial Accuracy
Lateral and radial accuracy of a wheel are important for maintaining wheel stability and reducing stress on the spokes and nipples, resulting in a longer lifespan of the wheel. Venn carbon rims offer accurate lateral and radial accuracy, allowing assembly of high quality and durable wheels because the resulting spoke tensions are very close to their neighbours.
Accurate and Consistent Effective Rim Diameter (ERD)
Effective rim diameter (ERD) is a critical feature for the wheel building process because it allows for the usage of consistent spoke lengths and thus streamlined wheel assembly. Venn carbon rims offer accurate and consistent ERD, which remains stable even after use – the nipples do not “bed in” which may happen with competing rims which have loose material inside, or excess resin accumulation at the internal apex of the rim.
Uniform Rim Structure
A uniform rim structure is essential for maintaining the consistency of spoke tension throughout the circumference of the rim. Due to the computerised filament winding Venn carbon rims offer a uniform rim structure, which ensures that the spoke tension is uniform, and the stress on the spokes and nipples is minimized, resulting in a longer lifespan of the wheel.
Accurate ETRTO Compliant Tire Interface Dimensions
Accurate ETRTO (European Tire and Rim Technical Organization) compliant tire interface dimensions are important for secure and simple tire installation and removal. Venn carbon rims offer accurate ETRTO compliant tire interface dimensions, which are particularly important for wheel building businesses and experts, as they significantly improve end-user satisfaction. Strict adherence to ETRTO standards also improves rider safety as it minimises any chance of tire blow off under normal riding conditions.
Venn carbon rims are designed to deliver the highest level of performance and reliability for wheel building businesses and experts. The accurate and customized spoke hole drilling, high rim stiffness, lateral and radial accuracy, accurate and consistent ERD, uniform rim structure, and accurate ETRTO compliant tire interface dimensions ensure that our rims perform at the highest level possible.
Our carbon rims are designed to be both lightweight and strong, making them ideal for high-performance cycling. By incorporating the latest technology and production methods, Venn carbon rims deliver exceptional performance and reliability for the most demanding cycling applications.
In conclusion, Venn carbon rims offer several essential features for building high-performance wheels. These features include accurate and customized spoke hole drilling, high rim stiffness, lateral and radial accuracy, accurate and consistent ERD, uniform rim structure, and accurate ETRTO compliant tire interface dimensions. Our rims are designed specifically for wheel building businesses and experts who demand the highest quality and performance from their wheels. Choosing Venn carbon rims will ensure that your wheels are strong, durable, and perform to your customers’ expectations, bringing them back for more.
