DRAGON SKIN TECHNOLOGY 

We've bred the bravest and fiercest dragons to bring you our Dragon Skin Technology (DST).
DST is a blend of 3k weave and UD carbon laid up over a new and more refined single mould process, resulting in a wheel that is lighter, stiffer and stronger.

G4 Carbon Road WheelKEY FEATURES & UPDATES

SINGLE MOULD PROCESS

Our new single mould process is a slower, presice and refined way of laying up a carbon rim.
This results in better consistency which means fewer opportunities for rim failure. 

DISC BRAKE SPECIFIC

Our new profiles and process allows for us to specify build a disc only rim across the same profiles. There is no brake track in our Disc rims.

GO WIDE

We have opted for 25mm wide clincher rims across the range. We have found that this wider platform offers increased stability, stiffness and reliability.

PROPRIETARY PROFILES 

We have opted for a broader range of wind slicing profiles.
The G4 comes in depths of 
25mm, 35mm, 45mm, 55mm 

UCI TESTING

All G4 profiles have passed UCI inspection.

TESTED ON THE TRACK & RED HOOK CRIT

One of the first riders on G4s was Lizanne Wilmot - the 2015 Canadian Keirin Champion. Their first test and Lizanne's mission was nothing short of the UCI Category 1 event, ITS Melbourne and then on to the infamous Red Hook Crit London.

G4 FAQ's

Q - Why are the G4 rims and wheels better than the previous models?

A - The materials and process involved in making the G4 rims set them apart from others in the industry. We utilise high-temp resin throughout the entire structure of the rim.

Q - Are the G4 rims tubeless compatible?

A - No. The G4 rims are clincher only. We have found standard clinchers more user friendly for our customers. We have found tubeless systems messy and stubborn to mount.

Q - What tyre pressures do you recommend?
We recommend running lower pressures than you are likely used to:
23mm tyres: 90-105psi | 25mm tyres: 85 - 100psi | 28mm tyres: 80-95psi

Q - How do I look after my rims and get the most out of my investment?
