BACKGROUND


All mass produced carbon composite wheel rims are constructed in one of two ways using an intermediate “sporting grade” modulus of carbon fiber thread. Almost exclusively P.A.N. (propylene+ammonia) based fibers are used and as a general rule ‘the better the PAN the better the fibre’ is true.

Japanese Toray is an industry leader but despite common claims, not all wheels use Toray fibres. Many cheaper inferior fiber grades are now commonplace. Visually they are impossible to tell apart to the consumer.

carbon fibers
carbon layup

All composite components are manufactured using multiple layers of pre-cut fibres in either woven or uni-directional form. All other parameters being equal, the number of layers
and orientation of the fibres determine the final mechanical properties of the product once cured in a mould which is heated and thermally activates and sets the epoxy resin surrounding the fibres.

Cutting the required fibre shapes and ‘laying up’ to create the final structure has traditionally been done exclusively by hand and is therefore intensely labour dependent and final quality depends on skill established over many years.

Recently expensive semi-automated equipment has been developed to build up parts of the rim structure using the tape winding method. This has many advantages including highly accurate and repeatable fibre orientation, consistent fibre overlap and most importantly, the fibres are kept under tension (which is not possible using hand layup). Nex-Gen rims use the automated tape winding process.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING INNEGRA FIBER?

• Reduced weight
• Increased damage tolerance
• Increased impact resistance
• Reduced maintenance
• Incredible strength to weight ratio
• Hydrophobic (doesn't absorb moisture)
• Dampens vibration
• Disperses energy

Tape-wound carbon

Measuring lateral & vertical compliance

The Nex-Gen Innegra/carbon rim is approximately the same weight as a regular carbon composite version yet has 15% less compliance (compressive stiffness) for a more comfortable ride and exceeds 160J ISO impact without fracture compared to 140J for pure carbon composite version before fracture.

  1. Brett S

    I was lucky enough to get delivery of a set within 5 days of ordering and now have 2 weeks riding on these awesome wheels. What an improvement over my previous set of carbon rims. Lots of admiring comments – They look super-cool on my bike. Brett – AR

  2. Brad N – Il

    I got a pre-release set (Yeah I know a guy who builds them) and these are AWESOME wheels! I was initially drawn to the new rim tech and reputations of the guys behind Nex-gensports. Also like that fact these are American made – Cannot understand why anyone would bash a great American brand like Industry 9. I guess they prefer cheap Chinese instead? Buy American whenever you can in my book. No more black carbon for me.

  3. JamesT – Tx

    Got mine early March so have done about 500 mixed on/off road miles in the past month. Bought mine with Schwalbe G-one allround fitted – great combo and price. Nex-gen guys answered all my questions prior to my order. Have been getting lots of questions and admiring comments since these look and ride fantastic. Amazing price for the great quality – Go USA!

  4. John Clement

    Best upgrade I ever did to my bike! Fabulous look and feel – Vast improvement over my previous carbon rims. Biggest issue is fellow riders stopping and asking me what they are and where can they buy some! Very competitive price for the money as well. Buy American. John C.

  5. R.Binder UT

    Nicest guys I’ve ever encountered in the bike industry. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Got a ‘custom’ set of V7’s built within 3 weeks at a great ‘made in the USA’ price. Very happy with the end result. Highly recommended if you enjoy your sports.
