Wheels with graphene to make them lighter, but at a price of almost 1.600 euros

The wheel weight is only 1,3 kg, but the tire only weighs 345gr

Known as "material of the future," the graphene, is beginning to break into the market. Its new application has been on bicycle wheels by the hand of the Progress specialized manufacturer, which takes a technological leap by incorporating graphene in its new Atom wheels

The wheel weight is only 1,3 kg, but The tire only weighs 345gr, with its internal width of 27 mm. That is the magic of graphene: more resistance with less weight.

They have managed to reduce 20% weight regarding some carbon tires although they have agreed that they have achieved another 20% improvement in the impact tests and start of radios made by the brand.

All these improvements in addition to an aluminum core and other finishes of the highest quality have put these wheels with a price of 1.590 €.

In the design of this rim Progress adapts its width measurement to the most modern standards using 33 mm, which not only provides a more impressive aesthetic, but also an increase in the resistance of the whole.
