Hed Designs Alps Rims

0/5 (0 Reviews)

Product Description

The Alps rims are structural carbon hoops with a lightweight alloy rim cap. An alloy rim section lets you brake confidently in any weather using any brake pad. The carbon section is high modulus cloth, laid over a structural foam core. The alloy cap is co-molded to the rim. To lower weight, the spokes pass through the carbon to anchor at the alloy section. No additional material is needed as a strain relief to counter spoke tension.
