Rolled out at the Tour of California, and getting ready to run into production is the Mad Fiber Full Carbon Wheelset. Weighing in at 1085 grams a set, the Mad Fiber full carbon fiber wheels are the first production, and Ric Hjertberg has returned as the companies president to wheel manufacturing.
The front Mad Fiber carbon wheel utilizes a carbon shelled hub, while using a alloy axle, giving the wheel a unique look. Taking the wheels in a different direction, Mad Fiber took the carbon spokes and bonded to the hub and rim. This technique made sure high levels of stress was eliminated compared to drilling or molding. Another feature is the creation of spoke tension, first the spokes are bonded to the rim and flanges, then the flanges are pushed to the edge of the hub, which pushes the spokes, creating tension. Mad Fiber Full carbon fiber wheels can hold up to 600 pounds, so it is safe to say a weight limit is not present. Each wheelset comes with a 4 year warranty and crash replacements. Retail price is $2,599.
