New Crankbrothers Synthesis Alloy Wheel Range

Crankbrothers is proud to launch its Synthesis Alloy Wheel Range, bringing its game-changing front and rear specific tuned wheel concept to an aluminium wheel set.

Crankbrothers Synthesis Wheels take a new approach to wheel systems, focusing on combining a compliant front wheel with a stiff rear wheel to achieve optimal ride characteristics for each.

The compliant front wheel improves handling and control in turns, while the stiff rear wheel enhances stability and tracking at speed. In the Alloy range, these differing characteristics are achieved by variations chosen in spoke tension, spoke weight, spoke count, rim width, and rim weight.

The Crankbrothers Synthesis Alloy Range will feature Enduro, Cross Country/Trail, and E-MTB models, aiming to accommodate as many riders as possible. The Range will include two hub options in the Enduro and Cross Country/Trail models; a Crankbrothers hub, and an Industry Nine 1/1 hub, providing 4 degrees of engagement. Rim-only Cross Country/Trail and Enduro options will also be available.

The Crankbrothers Synthesis Alloy Range will complete the overarching Crankbrothers Synthesis Wheel Range, joining the existing carbon wheel selection to provide riders of all disciplines with a broad selection of options.
