Elevate Cycles has always enjoyed custom wheels. Seems like over the years, Elevate Cycles has built 1000’s of wheel sets. Probably every wheel size you can think of from 20″ BMX Race wheels to Carbon Fat Bike. While there is a bit of science be hind wheel building, it requires patience. Rather an art form of patience is required by one to be in tune with spoke tension and the number of turns each spoke nipple has on it.
Custom Wheels have a noticeable ride quality to them above and beyond anything else out there. Mostly the stability in corners and the responsiveness during acceleration. At times one will find a company that takes the care and effort to produce wheels of this caliber. With that said, technology is what regulates the price tag on these wheels along side quality of build. Consequently, Zipp Firecrest comes to mind.
While some riders are interested in a full custom build including their choice of spokes, nipples, rims and hubs to assemble, pre-built is an option. Due to the level of stress these activities can put on wheels, Elevate takes the extra time to hand tension for quality control. Especially relevant when building wheels for performance during Road, Mountain and Fat Bike cycling. As a result, the final product is non other than a beautiful performance driven wheel.
Elevate Cycles is here for the riders far and near to help them through the steps of choosing cycling gear to make their riding more enjoyable.
