VINTAGE BICYCLES WOODEN RIMS

HICKORY VINTAGE RIMS OF WOOD

 

FEATURES:

 

UNIQUE have been used by real masters in road and track racing

VICTORIES these wooden rims have raced and won cycling races

VINTAGE these wooden rims, partecipated in cycling races in the late ‘40 ies

SMOOTHNESS you “will feel” it also an asphalt road

HIGH STABILITY AND LONG LIFE time through the use of very strong woods such as ash and hickory

AERODYNAMICS  ovaloid teardrop shape is designed to penetrate and overcome the friction of the air

HIGH-IMPACT RESISTANCE through increased elasticity of its molecular structure

PERFECT ADHERENCE WOOD RIM-TUBULAR sealing between the wood rim and the tubular is better and more homogeneous. The wood is a poor conductor of heat. In descents roads requiring prolonged use of the brakes, the braking friction  generates a huge amount of heat.  In wood rims, differently from metal ones, heating is not transmitted by conduction to the paste sealing the tubular to the rim. The maximum tubular hold contact surface is always guaranteed under any possible condition.

HIGH QUALITY BRAKING  the friction between wood rim and pads is higher and the effectiveness of braking is improved.

RESTORATION the wooden rims Hickory are ideal for restoration of vintage race bikes from end of 30′ ies until beginning of 90′ ies.

 

DOCTOR SAYS:

 

The experience of those who practice cycling, shows that impacts, expecially if unexpected, overstress wrists, elbows, shoulders and spine.
The characteristics of this CB Italia wooden rims limit the transmission of impacts and reduce detrimental action significantly .
