HOW DO YOU MAKE AN ULTRA-TOUGH, HIGH-PROFILE CARBON WHEEL IMPERVIOUS TO THE WIND?
Well, we make pretty light work of it!
Time and time again we are confronted by conflicting objectives which don’t seem to be reconcilable. And it is these that spur us on and keep us on our toes. We’ve always followed the maxim of “find the best solution rather than make lazy compromises”. This is exactly how we went about creating GIPFELSTURM. We wanted a high-profile wheel that would set new benchmarks in toughness, crosswind conditions and comfort. The result is the perfect wheel for both strong winds and hills, a wheel that notably relieves strain on the neck and shoulders. Its maneuverability and steering precision are phenomenal, even in the most adverse weather conditions. The completely sealed design stops water and dirt getting inside the wheel. This is why discerning cyclists opt for GIPFELSTURM. Wise choice, we think.
