Carbon Rim Tech
Carbon Braking Surface
1. All of our carbon wheels use high TG resin ceramic fiber composite reinforced braking surfaces to maximize performance when braking: Under heavy use and high friction, ie. periods of hard braking, the rim keeps lateral specification with a significant reduction in the thermal expansion on the braking surface as compared to ordinary carbon fiber rims. It also offers a longevity to the rim that products of the past could not.HEAT BUILD UP GRAPH -TIRE PRESSURE vs BRAKING (click here)
2. Engineered profile design: The precisely engineered shape of our rim was optimized to increase lateral stiffness, leading to better ride characteristics when climbing and accelerating along with premium brake track performance.
3. ACL Brake Pad Compound: Our state of the art Advanced Carbon Layers (ACL) offer optimal balance of strength-to-weight ratio. Special design of the brake pad compound which has improved heat dissipation properties to eliminate overheating.

The special alloy contains manganese (Mn) and niobium (Nb). The melting point of niobium (Nb) is 2300℃, and aluminum (Al) is 620℃. Due to tremendous different melting points between these elements, how to alloying is a very difficult task in materials science.
Super Alloy—KLM41, aluminum alloy containing niobium, by unique technology and refining technique. Equipped tight-knit structure and fine-textured surface specialty, this alloy offers tensile strength twice that of conventional alloys. This material has been successfully applied to the fabrication of high-grade series products.
