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.

Technology

The rim is made of quality Japanese Toray T700 and T800 carbon fibres. Prepreg (weaving of the sheets of carbon) is done in our factory meaning the manufacturing process is fully under our control.

Resin used on the rim body is enhanced with Nanocarbon tubes (NCT) which significantly increase stiffness, resistance to shattering and allow us to use less resin and therefore make lighter wheels.

PowerWay R13 hubs weigh 285 grams and they make a fine-tuned system with sealed Enduro bearings.

Sapim spokes are beautifully crafted and you can get them anywhere. External spoke nipples allow tensioning without removing the tyre.
