Some key tips:
We always require that you build with a high-end tension gauge. Make sure that the tension meter is calibrated and reading correctly.
Our high tension target is 115kg/f or 1130 N/m. Do your best to keep all tension within 2% from one spoke to the next on each side of the hub. If you can achieve better, the better the wheel will be, and the longer it will go without needing maintenance.
DO NOT build our wheels without a tension meter. It will lead to premature failure and undue stress on the rim.
All of our rims must be assembled with Sapim spokes and Sapim Polyax nipples. Sapim makes by far the best nipple in the industry, and we do not rely on anyone else in-house.
The shape of the Polyax nipple is ideal for building without washers and provides the best possible nipple to spoke articulation to date.
Tools and Truing Stand
Using high-quality tools always gives the best outcome. If you have taken on the job of building up your wheel, please ensure you have the required tools to do so.
A professional Parktool truing stand, lateral dishing tool, and high quality 4 sided spoke keys are an excellent place to start.
Take your time and enjoy the process. Building wheels can be very rewarding and the outcome, if done right, can last a lifetime.
