Our Carbon

Hie cycling uses a proprietary designed carbon compound. Carbon rims consist of an epoxy resin with high glass transition (TG) with a reinforced braking surface. This design maximizes high performance braking under extreme load. Provides a reinforced clincher tire bead section to allow for higher tire pressure, though we recommend 120 lbs max.

All rims are constructed using a reinforced external nipple rib for easy adjustment and maintenance. Our engineered profile design offers a stiffer design to increase the ride performance for climbing, and quick acceleration.

The type of carbon used is Toray T700S, it’s a military grade carbon, higher than a typical carbon product:

  • Tensile Modulus: 220GPa
  • Tensile Strength:  4900MPa
