Syncros (Switzerland) – Press Release: Syncros Silverton SL wheelset - A system for Speed.
The goal with our new Silverton SL cross country wheelset was to build the fastest, lightest wheel possible. Our engineers studied lateral and torsional stiffness, as well as mass distribution, to come up with the optimal carbon layup. They developed a one piece mold with a unique tensioning process to provide a one piece rim, spoke and spider construction.
Our new Silverton wheels have been re-engineered from the ground up resulting in three key benefits for the rider of faster acceleration, cornering and braking at a groundbreaking total weight of 1250 grams.
A precision one-piece carbon system that gives you more speed with more control in every situation.
1250g Centralized Mass = Improved acceleration, braking and more reactive steering.
+100% Torsional Stiffness = Increased power transfer, improved acceleration.
+30% Lateral Stiffness = Cornering stability and precision steering.
Our Silverton SL wheelset involved several engineering challenges that the team worked around to reach the end product.
