Nominated for the Best Company 2017

Rolf Prima (USA)
Each wheel we hand-build at Rolf Prima starts with a carefully engineered design and the best materials and custom-spec parts. Then we beat the hell out of them. Machine testing to ensure lasting durability. Aerodynamic testing to reduce drag. Field-testing by riders who might do a quarter-mile faster-than your old Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser.

You could say we thought the process through. But it's not just the process and materials. It's the people we go to work with every day in Eugene, Oregon. No, we're not wheel manufacturers. We are all cyclists. We are craftsmen. We are perfectionists. We build the best wheels in the business because we're doing what we love—both in the shop and on the road or trail. What can we build for you?

We are athletes. We ride, we run, we ski, we climb and we swim. We believe in a healthy balance and we take advantage of every opportunity that life allows. We are craftsmen. Your rides are as important to us as our own. We understand that quality and workmanship matter. By hand-building our wheels with parts that we design, test and manufacture, we can provide our customers with the consistently great experience they expect from us. We are perfectionists. We are driven by technology and performance, and we focus on making world class wheels for cyclists no matter which level they ride or race. We are teammates. We strive to maintain a supportive and rewarding place to work and it shows in our dedicated service. We are local. We are committed to our community and the cycling community at large. We show our support through events, volunteering, participation, and cyclevangelism. We are dedicated. We will always stay true to our customers and to our core beliefs in quality over quantity and purposeful engineering.

Lake Cycling (Netherlands)
In 1982 we started our journey to make the finest cycling shoes possible for all cyclists, and today we celebrate our 35th anniversary of doing just that.

Over the past three and a half decades we have taken some bold and innovative “first” steps: we introduced the first Nylon sole cycling shoe with innersole; this was followed by the first Mountain Bike shoe, first Triathlon shoe, first cold weather winter cycling shoe, first Thermoform custom heat moldable shoe and first Cyclocross specific shoe.

Many viewed these as risky modernizations; however, we like to think of it more as a continuous adventure in pushing the boundaries of cycling shoe fit, function, performance, and design. We thank our loyal customers and future ones to be. We look forward to having you join us on this perpetual adventure.

More than 2500 frames are produced each year thanks to a team of specialists, starting with the design of the frame, to the cutting and laminating of the tubes up to the painting and testing.

Personalization is our strength, which allows us to satisfy the customer’s every need: the choice of materials, the shape of the tubes, made-to-measure geometries, graphics and reinforcements in Kevlar or titanium/carbon. Every feature of a Sarto frame can be changed and selected by the customer.

Each year we design and create new models, which are presented at the most important trade fair before making their way around the world.

We believe in the services we offer, we believe in the product made entirely in Italy with our own hands. Thanks to this combination of factors, we are positioned in an exclusive market segment, allowing our flag to outshine over other nations, without fear of competition.

Created thanks to the collaboration between Stefano Migliorini, Giuseppe Bernocco and Sebastiano Astegiano, THOK sets passion and experience behind its ambitious project: being able to create a bicycle that can blend the advantages and peculiarities of a MTB with the comfort and the practicality of an electric motor. THOK uses unique skills and materials among the best on the market with the aim of enabling a greater sharing of MTB experience, cutting down the athletic differences between cyclists thanks to the technology used. Aldo Drudi and D-Performance team took care of the design of THOK products, looking for aggressive, yet harmonious lines and designing graphics that make these e-mtbs even more appealing.

Luca Burzio (360 Engineeriing DE), a renowned engineer in bicycle industry, has been called to refine the chassis geometry by creating a bicycle with exceptional handling thanks to the low gravity center secured by the strategic positioning of the battery.

Tony Bou, 22 times Trial World Champion with Montesa Honda, participated in the development of the THOK Limited Edition, the top of the range, helped by years of experience and win on the two wheels.

The result is a product that meets the most demanding riders, with an extreme comfort on all types of surfaces, a unique design and a rideability at the top of the category. All these features come together with the Shimano Steps E8000, the currently smallest engine present on the market, with an incredibly progressive supply.

MIGs, THOK‘s first products, are a focus of all these features, making them unique in their gender.

Ride them once and you’ll realize it.

There are several ways to develop an e-bike concept. THOK’s vision focuses on performance, as a direct influence of its creator: Stefano Migliorini.

Pedal Plate (Netherlands)
Pedal Plate as a concept has its origin in the second half of 2016, when Marc van der Heide started with the development of the first prototypes of the Pedal Plate. That start was triggered by him using his road bike for commuting, short trips and on holidays for more than sports alone. The goal was to make more use of your road bike without the hassle of changing or bringing extra shoes.

Early 2017 the company Pedal Plate became a fact and after applying for the patent we started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the first production run. It was very encouraging to see that many people had faith in the product and pre-ordered one or more sets on Kickstarter.

From end of may the Pedal Plates are produced in the Netherlands and we are very proud that the packing is now done in one of the sheltered workplaces of “Ons Tweede Thuis”(translated: “Our Second Home”). It make us very proud to be supporting employment for those who have difficulties finding regular jobs.

This all makes the original a product that is 100% Dutch and has already found its way to customers in over 30 countries already.

Factor Bikes (Taiwan)
Our name may be new to you but our work isn’t. Our engineers and factory have created some of the world’s most sought-after road bikes, bikes that helped redefine what we expect from a carbon fibre road bike.

We’ve produced bikes that have won many of the world’s great races, from Classics to Tour de France stages, even the overall for the Tour de France and the Giro.

Our engineers pioneered processes that are considered the state of the art for the carbon fibre bicycle. Our work has been emulated by nearly every factory and every bike brand working in carbon.

There came a point when we realized that the only way we could produce bikes that exploited the full range of our creativity and expertise was to launch our own brand. We are now able to control every feature of the design—the geometry, the frame shape, the fibre choice and the layup.

Because we own the factory, because we live locally, because we can step into the factory anytime we choose, we have the ability to move from design to prototype to production at a speed no major manufacturer can match.

We are cyclists and every day we come to work with a passion to make the best bicycles we can. We strive for excellence for the simple reason that an excellent bike is the one we want to ride.

Van Nicholas (Netherlands)
It is not enough simply for our bikes to look beautiful, they must also perform exceptionally. And exceptional performance is wasted if our bikes cannot stand up to everyday use. This is the challenge that gets us out of bed every day. Our solution? Titanium. And experts who know their trade.

DUTCH AND PROUD:
We began life as a Dutch family company before becoming part of the famous Dutch bike brand Koga in 2012. Every member of our team is mindful of the proud tradition of cycling in Holland and shares a passion for this legacy of innovation in form and function. We are all united in our quest to achieve perfection in modern bicycle design; in constructing our bikes to the highest possible standard; in unparalleled customer service; in delivering the Van Nicholas experience with pride. We are dedicated to providing the ride of a lifetime, for a lifetime of riding, wherever you are in the world.

TECHNOLOGY & CRAFTSMANSHIP:
The central tenet of our philosophy is simple, old-fashioned craftsmanship. No one cares more about the finished product than the skilled workers who put their names to it. The designer, the fabricator, the mechanic. But believing in craftsmanship does not mean we ignore modern technologies. We are constantly seeking to evolve. For example, we created the first Seamless Hydroformed Titanium frame. And a divisible road handlebar, specifically designed for the Rohloff Speedhub. We also design and manufacture our own range of state-of-the-art apparel and components.

We believe that ‘Nothing Looks, Rides or Lasts like a Van Nicholas’. But don’t take our word for it, please see for yourself. We hope you’ll come to agree with us.

On the other hand, wood is a friendly material to the environment, a renewable raw material whose sustainable use benefits the environment and society. Almost imperceptibly, wood surrounds us in our everyday life and qualities include that it is recyclable, contributes to mitigate climate change, hardly uses energy or emit C02 in their preparation and offers solutions that enable innovative designs. The woods from which they manufacture their bikes come from sustainably managed forests.

Finally, as if it were a fingerprint, the wood grain gives their designs a unique characteristic. No bike is like another.

TBK Bike commercialize urban models bikes, with electric version, road and gravel bikes. They also have wooden accessories, as pedals, mudguards and bars.

ProViz (UK)
Proviz is an International Award Winning Sports Brand, distributed in 40 countries, and has the largest range of specialist enhanced visibility sports products on the market. It is renowned for its innovation and quality.

It all started in 2008 in a small flat in London where two brothers were commuting to their corporate jobs. It was during their daily commutes by bike to work that they realised the limitations of the products they were using. They identified a gap in the market to provide highly innovative, light-emitting and reflective cycling products. Inspired by their experiences (good and bad!) and with no prior retail or product manufacturing experience they designed five innovative cycling products.

It took a lot of time and research to identify and engage the correct manufacturers but the founders had a desire to push innovation and product development in a niche area where they believed it was missing. The founders set about building a brand that would address this need, synonymous with innovation, performance and being highly effective. Most importantly, the desire was to create products that customers loved and that made a difference in their lives.

The founders had to learn quickly. They soon became accustomed to working all hours of the day in order to co-ordinate manufacturers from around the world. Following positive feedback from independent testers and retailers the products were soon put in to manufacturing.

AZUB Bike (Czech Republic)
AZUB was founded in 2000 by Aleš Zemánek in Uherský Brod, giving it a brand name at the same time. It is an abbreviation made up of Aleš’s initials and the initials of our town. We started out as a cheap East European brand of recumbents and after fifteen years of great effort, we are among the best recumbent manufacturers. From the very beginnings we have pursued our aim – to make the best recumbents in the world. Confucius once said: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. So we set off on ours. Having a run-of-the-mill production line spitting out the same bikes day in and day out would not be for us. Why should a rider adapt to the bicycle? We think it should be the other way round! So we produce bikes and trikes which are highly customizable and which are built to customers' needs and wishes.

Sarto Lampo Road Bike
Sarto SRL (Italy) - Born from the need to satisfy the requirements of the fastest and most powerful cyclists, Lampo, available in both Direct Mount and Disc brakes versions, is the custom carbon frame by Sarto Srl, which better combines aerodynamic features with stiffness into a unique bicycle.

Through careful CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) analysis, every profile of the tube set that forms our Lampo has been optimized from the aerodynamic point of view. This brand new Lampo uses “Triple Edge” technology on its down tube, fork and top tube, consisting of special tube shaping. “Triple edge” technology allows to control the airflow around the stripes and delays the detachment of the outer layer from the surface of the tube so that the air can flow with less resistance. This effect is very similar to that of the dimples on a golf ball.

The down tube that integrates the fork, ISOFLOW seat stays, internal cable routing, seat tube with Kamm tail aero profile and Triple Edge Technology are just some of the most striking aspects resulting from aerodynamic studies. In addition to these peculiar characteristics that identify Lampo, the high stiffness of the frame enhanced by the integrated oversized seat tube minimizes the energy dissipation.

Factor O2 Disc
Factor Bikes (Taiwan) - Think back on the qualities you’ve most admired in the bikes you’ve ridden. If you’re anything like us, that list includes rock-solid handling at speed, confidence in corners, comfort over those roughest roads, stiffness as you gut out a sprint and a fit that didn’t require a million spacers or a custom stem.

The people responsible for how the O2 rides all raced at the ProTour level. This is the bike they wish they had when they were racing. We know first-hand how important solid handling is. We also know that a bike can be too stiff and what that will do to a body when you’re racing for five or six hours a day for days on end.

What we’ve found is that it’s important for a bike to have enough stiffness. Rather than use one steerer dimension for all sizes, we have size-specific tubes and layups so that the feel of our largest frame is the same as the feel of our smallest frame. The O2 is meant to impart an experience, not a look.

Another significant difference between this O2 and the bikes our ex-pros rode is the inclusion of disc brakes. Once you’ve had a chance to ride disc brakes and enter a mountain switchback with the hot speed of a go-kart on a race track and enjoyed the incredible stopping power and precise control that disc brakes offer, going back to rim calipers feels like putting down tube shifters back on the bike. This is the version of the O2 our own staff prefer.

As a factory producing bikes for other companies, we were in at the ground floor developing the first layups for disc brake road bikes. We know what it takes to produce a frame and fork strong enough to take the braking loads of disc brakes without the ride becoming too harsh. And while many manufacturers have had to resort to relaxed geometry to make room for the caliper and rotors, we’ve maintained exactly the same geometry as the rim-brake version of the O2; it gives up nothing in handling.

Even though the O2 doesn’t share the aerodynamic goals of the One, that doesn’t mean we’ve ignored aerodynamics altogether. From the smooth transitions and rounded tube shapes, the lack of sharp edges was a conscious decision to design a bike that performed without compromise without simultaneously giving the bike an aerodynamic flaw that would hurt its rider’s quest for speed. There’s more to a great carbon fiber frame than just designing a great shape and using good materials. The O2 is a study in the dark art of layup. Not only do we choose particular materials for their ability to contribute to the bike’s stiffness and ride quality, we cut them to exacting standards and place them in carefully selected locations, making sure the layers overlap no more than necessary; extra fiber is a waste, both in performance and weight.

Without such careful attention to detail we wouldn’t be able to produce a frame that weighs 740 grams that is stiff enough to contest Paris-Roubaix and strong enough to still be rideable after a crash.

Skeiron
Van Nicholas (Netherlands) - Named after Skeiron, the Greek god of the north-west wind, Van Nicholas hope their new road bike will be as swift and powerful as its mythical namesake. Designed to appeal to the fast-paced rider from all over the world in search of the very latest road-racing innovations, the Skeiron boasts state-of-the-art technical features that place it at the cutting edge of Titanium race bike technology. And on Wednesday 30th of August the Skeiron won a golden Eurobike Award in the category 'Racing Bikes'.

“Our main goal was innovation by integration,” explains Ralph Moorman, General Manager of Van Nicholas, “so we designed the Skeiron with integrated cable and hose routing; clean and unique for a Titanium frame.” In keeping with the integrated concept, the front fork has also been designed to accommodate the front brake hose and blend seamlessly with the frame – a neat ergonomic touch that also enhances the bike’s aerodynamic performance. “We also optimised the frame for rigidity at the four key stress points by incorporating a press-fit bottom bracket, ovalised down tube and hydroformed, tapered chain stays, tapered head and top tubes, and 12mm thru-axles for the wheels,” says Ralph. “It’s so good at laying down the power – a very quick bike indeed!”

The technical innovation doesn’t stop there: flat-mounts for the disc-brakes have been developed to provide aerodynamic advantages by hiding the mounting bolts and tucking the brake callipers closer to the frame; the internal cables and hose can be easily replaced through the well-thought out cap underneath the bottom bracket; and if super clean lines are your thing, the latest Di2 electronic shifting is available as an option.

Titanium purists will be pleased to hear that Titanium’s fabled comfort has not been forgotten in the quest for technical perfection, with seat post and seat stays optimised to allow the right degree of flexibility to kill road buzz, without sacrificing power output. It all adds up to a light, quick, technically advanced race machine: optimal rigidity for laying down the power; disc brakes for unparalleled feel and stopping force; aero-optimised features and Titanium’s magical ride. The innovative integration of the Skeiron will leave other bikes floundering in its slipstream.

The Skeiron is available as a complete build in the sizes XS t/m XXL (48, 51, 54, 57, 60 and 64) with a total price from € 3.499,-. A frameset with front fork will cost € 2.099,-. You can order the Skeiron with its classic titanium look, or with the special decal set on the frame as you can see on the photo.

MIG-R
THOK E-bikes (Italy) - The MIG-R was created for riders looking for an e-mtb incorporating top components offering a unique riding experience in all environments. The low center of gravity, high rigidity and Shimano XT group with 11-46 cassette lay the foundations for this new e-mtb.

LOW GRAVITY CENTRE:
Thanks to LGC technology, the position of the battery (a 504Wh battery, water-resistant, with a life expectancy of 1000 charge cycles) guarantees a lower centre of gravity on the MIG, optimizing its weight distribution. This ensures stability and brilliant handling when it is time to negotiate obstacles, both down and uphill.

SHORT CHAIN STAY:
Thanks to the very short chain stay (450 mm), to the frame geometry (66° head angle and 73° seat angle), to the weight moved very close to the centre of the bike and to the 27.5” Plus wheels, MIG e-bikes offer great handling and maneuverability in downhill sections together with excellent traction in steep and rough climbs, where this quality combines perfectly with the power and progression offered by the Shimano motor.

THOK PROGRESSIVE SYSTEM: The TPS rear suspension system (Horst Link four-bar linkage), with metric shock and dedicated rocker has been specifically designed for e-mtbs. The progressive suspension makes obstacles, even the most challenging, much easier and safer to deal with.

BATTERY GUARD:
A guard of ABS material, with a closing customized elastic band, effectively protects the Shimano battery against shocks. Easy to remove, it makes for simple battery charging even when it is still on the bike. All the MIGs will be delivered with two covers for the battery, one black and one red: an easy way to quickly change the look of the bike.

All Wheel Drive Electric Fat bike
Christini All Wheel Drive Bicycles (USA) - Christini All Wheel Drive Electric Fat Bike add the traction of AWD on a Fat 5" platform plus a 1000W mid drive to make an unstoppable off road machine!

AWD Performance: It is well known what all wheel drive does for a sport utility vehicle — just imagine what AWD can do for a mountain bike.

With increased traction, available at the flip of a switch you can conquer conditions that you thought were unridable. AWD provides greater control over wet roots and slippery rocks. You can power up steeper, sketchier hills and you’ll stick like glue to side slopes.

The AWD system is so efficient, it is hard to tell whether it is working… until you need it.

With the front drive disengaged, the CHRISTINI AWD handles and feels just like any dialed-in full suspension Mountain Bike. Engage the AWD system and you’ll feel increased control, stability and traction on slippery or loose surfaces.

AWD works whether you’re pedaling or coasting. You will be able to descend with confidence and corner more aggressively due to increased front wheel grip.

How It Works:
The CHRISTINI AWD is equipped with standard mountain biking components. Pedaling, shifting and braking are just like on a traditional bike.

A handlebar-mounted switch controls the AWD “shift on the fly” clutch. When the clutch is engaged, the rear spiral gear interlocks with the rear hub and power is transferred via internal shafts to the forward spiral gear set, which drives the CHRISTINI freehub.

Due to a slight gearing differential, the front wheel is not actively powered on smooth level ground. However, the moment the rear wheel slips, power is instantaneously transferred to the front wheel. Similarly, the moment that the front wheel decelerates, as in hitting a rock or starting to wash out in a corner, power and traction are transferred to the front wheel.

The effect is awesome. Instead of stalling when the rear wheel slips – the front wheel hooks up and you keep climbing. Instead of glancing off a slippery root – the CHRISTINI AWD tracks right over it. Instead of washing out the front end in an off-camber corner – the front wheel literally chews it’s way through the turn. The CHRISTINI AWD is simply the best climbing mountain bike on the market with the amazing downhill benefits too. When a front end tucks, the wheel stalls, stops turning, and begins to push. With the AWD system, as soon as the wheel begins to stall, power is delivered to the front wheel, forcing it to turn. With the front wheel under power, it is nearly impossible to wash out the front end.

With added up hill traction and downhill control, you’ll be amazed at what our bikes can do!

Nominated for the Best Bike Helmet 2017

Lumos Bicycle Helmet
Lumos Helmet (USA) - Lumos is the world's first smart bike helmet with integrated lights, brake, and turn signals.

Over 68,000 people get seriously injured and over 3,000 people die while cycling in the US and EU alone. Most frequent cause of collision, injury, and death? Getting hit by a car. These largely preventable deaths and injuries exact not just a human cost, but an economic one as well, costing an estimated $4bn every year.

By integrating LED lights into the helmet, we developed a device that instantly makes the rider more visible on the road, drastically reducing their chances of getting into a crash. In the event that a crash does occur, the rider still has a fully functioning helmet to protect them from head injuries.

Besides being more visible on the road, we found that being predictable amongst traffic was also very beneficial so we utilized the embedded LED’s and implemented turn signals. Through initial testing, we found that not only was a cyclist wearing the helmet more visible, but they were also commanding more respect amongst motorists on the road as they were now playing by the same rules.

Spike 350 Vibrocore rim wheelset
Spank Industries (Taiwan) - The new Vibrocore™ rims and wheelsets by SPANK Industries

KEY ENGINEERING FEATURES & BENEFITS:

1.“Wide and low profile adds significant radial compliancy.” Against all current market trends, the profile of both the new rims is very low with a 17mm sectional profile height and 35mm outer width, 30.5mm inner width. In laboratory testing, this lower and wider profile is showing around 30% more radial compliancy compared to a more conventional alloy rim of approximately 34.5mm outer width, 30mm inner width and 22mm sectional height.

This added radial compliancy dramatically reduces deflection of the wheel when it hits abrupt obstacles, rutted corners and roots for example. Instead of “jumping” off the intended line, the wheels are able to flex radially and move with the rider’s momentum and the bike’s direction, rather than fight against it. This is often referred to as the wheels “tracking” ability. This forgiving responsiveness will allow riders to start increasing tire pressure again as the wheel will itself contribute towards better traction, improving acceleration and rolling speed, and reducing tire rebound.

2.“New profile increases lateral stiffness and torsional strength.” The shallow to wide profile ratio adds lateral stiffness and torsional strength. So while the radial compliancy allows for more flex, the enhanced lateral stiffness keeps the wheel true. Likewise, torsional strength is enhanced, significantly reducing the likelihood of the wheel buckling, or taco’ing.

With an internal width of 30.5mm, the rim is extremely versatile, fitting tires from 2.0" to 2.6" perfectly, and even allowing + size tire use, without negative squaring off of tire profiles. This means tires act predictably, and cornering traction is more consistent.

The above features and benefits are relevant to both the OOZY 350 as well as the SPIKE 350 Vibrocore™ models being launched. Unique to the SPIKE 350 however, is Spank Industries’ Vibrocore™ damping system.

The SPANK OOZY 350 comes without the Vibrocore™ foam core, which makes it ideal for Trail, All Mountain and Enduro bikes, looking for a wide profile (and improved comfort and traction), without a weight penalty.

3.“Vibrocore™ inner well maximizes torsional strength in a light weight, vibration damping core.” Spank’s Vibrocore™ has been put to the test over the past three years by pro-riders, consumers, reviewers and lab testing alike. Despite skepticism about how much a ‘foam filled bar’ can really improve rider comfort, the results have been undeniably notable, and have been backed by the data and lab results.

Now Spank has applied the same principles to the rim. With the significantly heightened radial compliancy of the new SPANK 350 rim, a direct result of the ratio between the incredibly low sectional profile height and the 35mm width, the engineering objective was first and foremost to ensure strength, torsional and lateral, for the higher demands of DH Race and free ride.

While adding just 40g to the overall weight of the rim, Vibrocore™ foam core increases torsional strength and increases the overall fatigue life of the rim, meaning high durability at a remarkably low weight. In fact, Vibrocore facilitates modern rim designs with thinner wall thicknesses in some areas, without any negative effect on strength and resilience. While acting in a similar fashion to the soft tissue inside human bones – which offers inner wall strength by applying an expansive internal load, Vibrocore™ will also dampen certain vibration frequencies, ultimately meaning less vibration for the fork to deal with, and less to the rider.

VIBROCORE™ IS A PROPRIETARY, BIODEGRADEABLE, COMPLEX FOAM CORE OF PRECISELY CONTROLLED DENSITY.

Injected into Spank Industries handlebars and now also into the brand NEW SPANK SPIKE 350 VIBROCORE RIM, it reduces vibrations or ‘noise’. The low density, pressurized core performs a similar function to the soft tissue inside bones, increasing inner wall strength and absorbing vibrations.

Initial testing of both new rims with Commencal Riding Addiction and other SPANK athletes have proven drastically improved ride characteristics and performance.

Dream Bikes Kilo Wheels
Dream Bikes (Italy) - Dream Bikes Kilo are the lightest MTB 29er clincher wheels in the world and the only one under 1000 grams weight for the pair!

They're are available in many standards and with many options. They're assembled with 24 or 28 spokes and they're also compatible with Boost standard and with Lefty or RS-1 forks. Althought their impressive weight, kilo wheels are also strong and reliable due their incredible rims... GrigioCarbonio HardWheel RS-L MY2018, who are their greater goal!

They're 29 mm width (26 mm inner) and 25 mm height. Harwheel RS-L 29" rims are compatible with 29" Tubeless or Tubeless Ready tires, latex sealent conversion systems included. HardWheel RS-L rims are monocoque made with super high module T1000 carbon fibre, the most advanced and performable on the market which allows to make products with an incredible weight/stiffness ratio. But the main and more important feature of T1000 fiber is the great elasticy (25% more than T800), so a better impact resistance, less vibrations and a superior comfort...all this is really great for a MTB rim! T1000 carbon fibre is at least 4 times expensive than T700 and T800 carbon fibre (which are usually used to made carbon fibre rims).

HardWheel RS-L rims are incredibly light, only 275 grams each, but due to their top quality materials and manufacturing, they haven't got any rider weight limit and they're lifetime guaranted, and this is really impressive!

Also the hubs are Made in Italy and very light, they comes from Extralite...HyperHubs are the only choice to assemble an ultralight wheelset!

HyperHubs are CNC and fine mechanincs masterpieces. They're made of 7075TXX Aluminum ably machined to obtain smooth and sexy shapes. They've got straight pull flanges for straight pull spokes which allows stronger and stiffer wheels without weakness tipical of j-bend spokes. Rolling action take advantage from the use of Enduro ABEC5 stainless steel sealed bearings; this kind of material assure a longer bearing life also in severe conditions. An external bearings preload system allows to get the perfect side play for the maximum performance (rolling resistance, smoothness and lasting). HyperHubs has got an hyper engineered front engagement system with 36 engagement positions for a fast and smooth action with minimal friction resistance.

Dream Bikes Kilo wheels are laced with Alpina Hyperlite, top end spokes of famous Italian brand. They're double butted (2.0 - 1.3 - 2.0 mm) bladed aero Straight-Pull spokes made of special C45 carbon steel alloy which has major resistance to impact and fatigue than stainlees steel alloys usually used for spokes. Based on the 80 years Alpina's experience, HyperLite spokes are 25% lighter than any other high-end spoke (like Sapim CX-Ray etc.) with an impressive 3.25 gr. weight each.

They're light but also strong and reliable, they can withstand up to 3600 N loads!

Spoke nipples are also made by Alpina with aluminum and they've got hexagonal head with spherical under head for a better fitting with rim holes. These nipples has also got an ABS system, special inserts that avoid spokes loosen

Dream Bikes Kilo wheels are pieces of art and absolutely top level! Their weight is impressive but their performance is more impressive! These wheels are not only incredible fast but also very stiff and super comfortable and of course strong and reliable too! Really not so common for ultralight carbon wheels...

They worth all the money spent! When you will try them you will not be able to stay without them!

Rims, hubs, spokes and wheelbuilding are 100% Made in Italy and we are very proud of this!

Bkool Simulator
Bkool S.L. (Spain) - Bkool is a pioneer in 3D simulation. Last August it presented the first and only simulator capable of recreating any route on the planet, in 3D, from the most remote corner of China to the most cosmopolitan city in Europe or the United States.

Exact reproduction. As the cyclist pedals at home, the simulator transmits to him the features of the terrain through the trainer. Thus, if in the real world there is a climb, or a descent, the user will really feel it, as if he were right there. The simulator also depicts the landscape, in 3D, with the rivers, trees and rocks typical of the area. This is possible because the simulator "knows" the landscape of every place in the world, providing users with an extremely realistic experience.

When the cyclist selects a route Bkool 3D RealWeather™ simulates its meteorological conditions, and in 3D. The weather phenomena are depicted in real time, and cover every route in the world. This advance represents a breakthrough in virtual simulation, making possible extremely realistic virtual scenarios. This new development is launched applied to the practice of cycling, but it will be progressively expanded to other sports and multiple fields, like video games and driver's training.

Exact reproduction. If the user chooses a route through London and it's raining, the simulator will depict the rain, with drops hitting the asphalt. If he opts for a route in New York and it's snowing, the simulator will portray the snow. If it's windy in Tokyo, blowing at a certain speed and from a certain direction, the user will feel it pushing or pulling him. If there is fog, it will appear on the simulator, affecting his view of the road. If there is a storm, lightning will illuminate the scene. If the day is cloudy the landscape on the simulator will be darkened by the clouds. Bkool 3D RealWeather™ also reproduces the time of day: the simulator portrays the light conditions at dawn, in the morning, at dusk, and at night.

Foot Fit Calculator
BikeFit (USA) - The Foot Fit Calculator allows cyclists to customize the fit of their bicycle shoes to their pedals. The application walks users through the process of figuring out the ideal pedal-to-foot connection angle and then recommends a solution to optimize foot fit. Users will need a friend to help take the pictures and the application will do the rest!

Through an easy and simple procedure, the app guides users through measuring foot tilt. The interface aids the user in to position, kneeling comfortably a couch or chair away from the person measuring their feet (with their knees slightly apart and legs hanging over the chair or bench). Next, the user only needs to have a friend take a quick picture, position the red line as explained in the directions, and then they are provided with the recommended number of Cleat Wedges needed to customize the fit of their foot.

Ninja Bottom Bracket
TOKEN (Taiwan) - The NINJA bottom bracket ties the right and left side bearings together so your cranks spin as smooth and your frame is as quiet as a ninja and stiffer than your legs after climbing 10 000m in a day on a fixed-gear bike!

We don’t want to start a fight but we think it’s fair to claim that there are some problems with press fit bottom brackets. They creak, don’t last all that long and are installed and removed with tools that cavemen would recognise. TOKEN’s NINJA bottom bracket solves the creaking issues, improves bearing life and adds stiffness to the bottom bracket.

We start with our Fusion technology; it is a combination of plastic and fibre that cover an alloy bottom bracket shell. The composite material allows it to be precisely machined and fit snugly in the frame so it doesn’t move in the frame and sound like grandma’s clicking and creaking arthritic knees. But plastic and fibre don’t do a good job of supporting bearings; poorly supported bearings can wear prematurely.

We house the bearings in an alloy shell and wrap it with plastic and fibre. This fusion of the three materials provides the bearings a solid platform to sit on and extends their lives. A lot of people would be satisfied with this, but we went even further by extending the alloy shell so the right and left sides lock together. This locks the frame, cranks and bottom bracket together and provides unparalleled stiffness.

The NINJA bottom bracket is can be purchased individually or in a package that includes adapters to fit several different frame and crankset combinations. Both of these come with specially made tools that precisely fit the bottom bracket and keep your frame safe from damage during installation.

The NINJA bottom bracket doesn’t just solve the problem of noisy bottom brackets - it actually improves the life of the bottom bracket and makes your bike stiffer. There aren’t many times a replacement part actually improves your bike but put one on your bike and you’ll wonder why you didn’t install a NINJA sooner.
