This is one trippy wheel. Crank Brothers has entered the wheel market.

Very cool and innovative design. If it works well, they will set a new standard.

That is wild. Check the detailed shot of how the spokes are attached.



Edit: attached not threaded

Are there plans for a more FR/DH oriented version.

If we ever find out what the difference between FR/DH is.

Well, it's really just very similar to--though cooler looking than--Rolf's paired-spoke design. So, Rolf already set the standard, these guys just honed it or, at the very least, did it their own way.

Only Ti Candies? Really? I guess the Smarties are becoming the new lower end Candies.
