700c Road U38 Wheels Non-Disc
Tairin offers road track-brake carbon (traditional non-disc) wheels in two options. With a U shape cross sectional profile, and in heights of 38mm and 50mm.
Our Tairin road track-brake wheels are symmetrical clinchers, tubeless compatible and engineered with our proprietary rim design: focusing around the sidewall, brake surface, wall junctions, nipple bed, and composite material layup. One of the key performance points we set to archive, is braking performance during initial and long braking periods, for brake fade prevention.
We also explored all carbon layup possibilities to increase overall stiffness while minimizing Rc (Resin content) ratio to a 70/30 mix, by laying 3k fabric in between layers of the rim to increase performance. We utilize filament winding methods in the nipple bed area for continuous fiber winding.
All in all, we refined our rims towards high strength as our top priority. We pass a rigours test, of loading single spoke holes with 300kgf spoke tension.
Braking surface is designed flush to the rim U-shape sidewall and it contours around to be ergonomic with the articulation of rim brakes. Brake surfaces are not basalt coated, but embedded into a special 1k single strand bond of basalt fibers. Our braking tests show initial temperature raise, but following a decrease over the length of braking. Impact tests follow during high temperature tests, to emulate worst case scenarios and we are confident that our engineering provides product longevity against carbon delamination.
The U38 wheelset comes laced the best steel spokes, the Sapim CX-Rays. Laced to our Reza hub set, with its light weight and high quality sealed bearings, to provide very low friction and low maintenance.
The rear Reza hub has 12 degree engagement, with its design focused primarily with strength in mind, by having long throw pawls housed on the hub shell and the ratchet in the freehub. The mechanism consists of 6 pawls with 2 steps per pawl that engage simultaneously with the 30T ratchet. For those coming from the track-fixed environment, the mechanism is designed for abuse against miss-engagement.
Hand laced wheels
Our wheels are hand laced in Surrey, BC. and we use multiple traditional methods of spoke yielding-stress-relieving, so that when you receive your wheel, you can rest assured that there is no seat in periods, or spokes losing tension in initial rides - these which would require re-tensioning like machine and poorly built wheels.
Premium hand built wheels require dedication and takes much longer than machine built, but the accuracy and attention to detail produced by the traditional way is one of the key aspects that makes Tairin wheels superior. By choosing Tairin Wheels, rest assured that every wheel has been hand crafted by a master wheel builder, so you get the best quality and labour, at the best deal out there.
We know that purchasing a new wheelset can be overwhelming with all the information at hand. Any questions and inquires can be addressed by contacting us.
