Our new single mould process is a slower, more refined way of laying up a carbon rim.
This results in better consistency which means fewer opportunities for rim failure.
A new 3k brake track using hi-temp resin replaces the old basalt brake track giving you better braking and temperature management.
We have opted for 25mm wide clincher rims across the range. We have found that this wider platform offers increased stability, stiffness and reliability.
We have opted for a broader range of wind slicing profiles.
The G4 comes in depths of 25mm, 35mm, 45mm, 55mm and 70mm.
All G4 profiles have passed UCI inspection.

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
