engage 62C SL carbon wheelset
High Performance aero full carbon clinchers, wind tunnel tested and made in Germany!
We have made use of our many years of experience in rim construction with our state-of-the-art rims from ax-lightness to also be able to offer the carbon rims of our engage by ax-lightness wheels with German production. For this purpose, new paths had to be explored on the production side. Partial automation and an adapted manufacturing processes enable us to also properly exploit the material potentials of the carbon fibre in the medium price segment. This allows the production of very light yet extremely stable and functional wheels.
The engage 62C SL was designed according to the latest aerodynamic findings and has already proven its qualities in the wind tunnel. With a depth of 62 mm, it has a very bulbous profile with a width of 27.5 mm. This is responsible for its top aerodynamic performance, even with wide tires, as well as very high aero stability, which pays off in particularly low steering influences even in crosswinds.
A large internal width of 17.5 mm allows the tire to unfold more naturally and thereby increases the performance compared to narrower rims. The aerodynamics have been specially optimized for modern, wide tires from 23 to 28 mm.
Of course, the rims can be used traditionally with inner tubes as well as with modern tubeless tires (TLR). The rims are tested up to 18 bar burst pressure.
Hub-wise the engage 62C SL also is in the premier league. As with the entire wheelset, the focus was on the greatest possible stability while reducing weight. The hub bodies are elaborately forged and the bearing seats then milled with utmost precision, which is typically only found on the most expensive and exclusive hubsets. Forging increases the tensile strength of the material and significantly increases the stability whilst at the same time reducing the weight. The use of 17mm axles, StraightPull bladed spokes and the maximized flange spacing yield extremely stiff and durable wheels.
Thanks to the generous dimensioning of all hub components in an oversize design, the wheels are also suitable for heavy riders and high loads. The bearing sizes used also speak in favor of this: only large industrial ball bearings are used. A special chemical black process of the bearing races and double lip seals make the hubs very weather-resistant.
On request, the hubs are also available with ceramic hybrid bearings, which further reduce friction, making them even less sensitive to the weather and further reducing weight.
With a rim weight of just over 500 grams and a total weight of only 1495 grams, the engage 62C SL is at the forefront even on hilly courses. Its special resin system with high heat resistance as well as the good braking performance take away any concerns of descents.
The voluminous profile and the fiber orientation allow a very high rigidity despite the low weight,
The wheelset shows its suitability for racing with our Continental teams BikeAid and P&S Metalltechnik Thuringia.
