BLADE Carbon Wheels - "Classic" and our new "2G" - 2nd Generation Rims
Our high-performance rims will significantly improve overall ride quality. Given wind-drag creates the majority of resistance for a cyclist, both road and race rims should be designed for an aerodynamic advantage. BLADE® "Classic" weave options are 3k, 12k and UD woven carbon fiber to build deep, aerodynamic rims that make for a strong, stiff and surprising light wheel. This added strength and resilience provides increased acceleration for a faster, smoother ride.
3k weave - Glossy finish
UD weave - Matt finish
12k weave - Glossy finish
