Unique Spoke Lacing in These Custom Handbuilt Carbon Wheels from Colorado

Over his career, former pro Jamas Stiber destroyed dozens or maybe hundreds of wheels. Seeking to find a solution to the problems he was having, including breaking spokes from time to time, Jamas set out to create the best wheel he possibly could. His solution involves multiple spoke gauges and nipple materials strategically placed to customize the ride and balance forces within the wheel. 8150 refers to this as Truth Lace Technology which is now patent pending. In this design, "drive pulse spokes" are a smaller gauge with an aluminum nipple to help save weight, because these spokes don't see a large amount of force, and "brake pulse spokes" are a larger gauge with brass nipples, which helps keep things from winding up as drastically under heavy braking loads.

The rim features a high-modulus, T700 carbon material and offers a 36-mm internal width, a hookless rim bead and weighs 460 grams per rim. The rims also feature 3mm offset spoke hole drilling to help minimize dish.

8150 custom builds wheels for every order which includes a discussion about the customer's preferences with regards to how they like their wheels to ride. The design takes into account various factors including an evolution of ideas to better accommodate disc brakes, the forces incurred in a wheelset, and dishing.
