The lacing of CORIMA carbon wheels
All our wheels are hand-built.
- Our front spoked wheels (except MCC S+ and MCC WS+) are hand built using the CORIMA R2 system. The spokes are set in pairs on the wheel.
- Our rear spoked wheels (except MCC S+ and MCC WS+) are hand built using 20 spokes. The drive side is built with 12 spokes in a 3 cross pattern, a setting that has proven over the years to provide the best transmission of power under drive. The left or non-drive side is built with 8 spokes in a radial pattern.
This arrangement allows for a more uniform tension across all of the spokes, providing a faster and stiffer wheel. This lacing system also improves the wheel's ability to remain "true" while increasing durability of spokes and nipples.
Recommended maximum spoke tension for each wheel is indicated in our owner's manual.
