Great performance for unbeatable price

In previous 30 years in a professional triathlon I was racing on wheels of the most famous cycling brands. When I discovered Equator I found out that in a comparison with other, more expensive wheels, Equator are not riding slower and are not heavier.

User manual (CZ):


The rim is made of high quality Japanese Toray T700 and T800 fibres. Prepreg is made by us in our factory. The whole process is completely under our control.

The epoxy used for the rim body is enriched with carbon nanofibers (CNT). This results in up to 30% higher strength and chip resistance. At the same time, we can use less epoxy and thus produce lighter wheels.

The FASTace hubs weigh a total of 285 grams and combined with the Enduro sealed bearings, it's a well-tuned system.

Sapim Race spokes are high quality and widely available. The external nipples allow the wheels to be centred without the need to remove the tire.
