MARS CARBON 27.5" and 29"

The MARS 27.5" and 29" Carbon is a XC/Trail wheelset with the new 30mm (internal wide) rim on board. Perfect for riders who are looking for more grip and traction. Lateral stiffness makes for snappy handling, while torsional stiffness counteracts brake wind-up.

An stiff and stronger focused Wheelset, MARS features resistent carbon rims, manufactured with zero bead hook design for increased strength and impact resistance. Hand built wheelset with high quality components as the DT-Swiss and the strong Sapim CX-Ray spoke. Definitely the MARS's your strong wheelset choice in the market to increase your performance at every trail.  

We are exclusively using the highest grade carbon prepregs with specific properties for the requirements for our rims and adapt our production processes specifically to the demands of the material in use in order to thus be able to fully exploit the potential of the raw material. That way we are using high-grade, high-tensile fiber types with a specific resin system with long curing times and adapt our processes accordingly. Whilst a rim in mass production is hardly ever allowed more than 30 minutes, our first curing cycle accounts to a whopping 2 1/2 hours and in addition features very flat temperature and pressure gain slopes. This is in order to guarantee a resin flow as optimal as possible and to ideally net the laminate layers as well as to offer enough time to press out even the smallest gas bubble in between the laminate layers. With faster curing times however the danger of even generating additional gas bubbles in the system increases due to the fast and high rising temperature. These would not be visible with the naked eye - so do not differ in quality optically - but will yield vastly worse mechanical properties; a not be taken lightly price of a quantity driven mass production.

Formula 1 materials
As material we are using a specific resin sytem from motorsports that offers the highest heat tolerance and mechanical robustness and there predominantly is being utilized for the thermally and mechanically highly stressed brake exhausts of Formula 1 cars.

Tempering
This no enough and especially important for rim brake rims: In addition to the actual curing all our in effect already finished rim brake rims run through another heat cycle in a separate heating oven. During this so called "tempering" the rims are being gradually brought to their glass transition temperature (T_g) in order to prepare them for extreme thermal stresses, such as dragging brakes of a heavy rider in alpine territory. In this cycle the resin crystals re-orientate and this way ensure the highest possible safety.

Production time
The production of a single rim takes 7 1/2 hours in order to get the maximum out of the material and to be able to offer you the best possible quality and performance - a span of time that was unthinkable in mass production!

ONE DREAM, ONE VISION!
