A Guide to Hookless Rim Technology
Hookless rim technology is becoming increasingly popular in the construction of road wheels yet it isn’t new, it was first developed for mountain bikes. The reasons for its development were driven by 3 major advantages it could provide:
- Increased rim wall strength and durability
- Lower weight
- A better seal between the tyre and the rim
This technology can now be found in many road and gravel wheels, including the CADEX wheelsystems, which are constructed using very lightweight but also very strong carbon fibre. This technology offers the same advantages as mentioned above and more. Here we’ll take a look at what exactly Hookless rim technology is and the benefits it brings.
