TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2016

CP016 evolved from its predecessors, CP12 and CP13, winners of the iF Design Award in 2013 and 2014, respectively. It is also one of the very few carbon spoke wheels designed for the disc brake system. The wheel composition comprises the following parts:
• Rim: Featuring a weight reduction of 20%, the wide body aerodynamic carbon rims are made of T-1000 or UMS40-6K high modulus carbon fiber.
• Hub/Spoke Design: A hub body designed for disc brake system with spokes blended in a one-piece structure to help increase energy transfer and maneuverability.
All factors come together to result in one of the lightest, stiffest and best, all in all, fully carbon spoke wheels in the world.
