/ TEMPO AM650b - aluminium

New product

The mountain bike version of the TEMPO are marked out by a complete asymmetric design that toughens the performance. Efficiency and handling are second to none in the category. The rim design is tubeless ready, and the rim shape is offset for stiffness and durability improvements.

More info

Made from a 6082 T6 aluminium alloy extrusion, the TEMPO XC rim shape is sleeved joint and the TEMPO AM rim is closed through two knurled brass tubes. A chemical weld ensures a strong and safe junction. 

Since the disc brake was introduced, and due to the increase of cog number on the rear wheel, the wheels weakened due to left/right sides asymmetry. 
The TEMPO XC and AM rims compensate for this weakness with three different asymmetries.
1. the first one concerns the rim offset by 2,5mm favoring the weak side of the wheel. This asymmetry increases the spoke tension where it is usually too low, it improves wheel stiffness as well as wheel snappiness. 
2. Different spoke are used on each wheel side to strengthen it while balancing the left/right side stiffness. 
3. The spoke cross pattern is different on each side of the wheel to increase stiffness and torque transfer. 

A stainless steel eyelet optimizes the alloy endurance where the nipples pull the rim. About 30% extra wheel life comes from this asset and the spoke - nipple alignement is straighter. 

You can convert TEMPO XC and AM tubeless very easily, the tubeless kit is pre-installed. The wheels are available in 650b and 29er.
