Every pair of carbon Wheelworks is handcrafted from start to finish and backed with a lifetime warranty!
To find out how they do this, we followed contest winner Stuart’s wheels as they were expertly built by head wheelbuilder Gavin McCarthy.
Custom decals are made for every wheel. To match Stuart’s Giant Propel, the team used Slate Metallic and Light Orange. The decals are CNC-cut and shown here ready to be applied with their application tape.
To ensure precision, the team at Wheelworks cut and roll every spoke to the exact right length. This is a detail you’ll probably never notice but it means zero broken spokes - something the Wheelworks team are very proud of.
Each wheel gets subjected to Grimlock as it’s being built. Grimlock is a pneumatic press which Wheelworks designed and made to pre-stress their wheels. No pinging spokes here - just wheels which stay true forever.
Every Wheelworks wheel is true to less than one-tenth of a millimeter which is about the thickness of a sheet of paper. These are the truest wheels in the industry
By handbuilding every wheel, the boys can ensure maximum attention to detail and quality.
