Power Block System

PATENTED TECHNOLOGY AGAINST SPOKE BREAKAGE

 

CITEC system wheels use straight pull spokes which are fixed to the hub using our patented 'POWER-BLOCK' sleeve technology.
This design eliminates the common weak spot in wheels. Neither is movement between the hub and spoke possible nor is there a spoke head to fail.
Even under constant use spoke failure is a thing of the past and it is no longer necessary to keep re-tensioning and re-centering the wheel.

We offer a 5 year guarantee against broken spokes on all CITEC system wheels that are equipped with the CITEC Power Block System. For more information, see the menu item "Conditions of guarantee".

 

Power Block Nipples

PATENTED TECHNOLOGY AGAINST SPOKE BREAKAGE

 

Internal aluminium nipples, constructed along the lines of our Power-Block hub sleeves, support the spoke. This reduces stress on the spoke where it enters the rim and again reduces the likelihood of a spoke breaking.

Concave System

PATENTED RIM TECHNOLOGY

 

The CITEC Concave System is an innovative, patented rim construction method.
It allows a decrease of weight while at the same time increasing the resilience of the rim.

This new development, comparable to the arch of a bridge, allows us to reduce the spoke number in the wheel without compromising the integrity of the rim base.
The forces acting on the rim are directed away. This guarantees long term strength and maximum resilience while saving weight at the rim, reducing rotating mass.

 

 

Hub Body

UNMISTAKEABLE HUB DESIGN


The hub body is constructed from several parts, which allows for a flexible manufacturing process, technological advantages as well as imparting a unique look.

ITS - Inverse Torquetransmission System

NOTICABLE INCREASE IN RESILIENCE


Inverse Torque-transmission System means that power is transmitted solely through the non-drive side spokes.
As these are less highly stressed, these wheels can cope with very high forces.

 

Hyper Size Flange

OPTIMAL POWER TRANSFER


The rear wheel flange has been dimensioned for maximum torque transfer while diminishing spoke load and increasing accelleration.
More of your power is used to propel you forwards!

Braking Surface

TOTALLY PREDICTABLE BRAKING


Aluminium braking surface on Carbon rims.

6000 CX for tubulars and 8000 CX wheels are equipped with heat bonded aluminium braking surface.
This guarantees smooth and progressive braking without overheating the rims.

Use regular brake pads without affecting the integrity of the carbon material.

Factory replaceable when worn.

If you want to ride fast, you need to be able to brake late!
