We produce all wheels in Leipzig. This guarantees that distances are short and a high level of transparency is maintained. The wheels are manufactured manually in an elaborate process with meticulous perfection by our wheel specialist. Before shipment, each wheel is checked again. Perfect true running and the uniform tension of all spokes are of particular importance.
The asymmetrical profile of our rims ensures that the spoke tension is nearly the same on the right and on the left sides. Special attention is also paid to the homogeneous tension of all spokes of each side. The more homogeneous the tension is, the longer is the life of the wheel. No spoke is loaded more or less than, for example, the next spoke in the wheel – the risk of spoke failure is near zero. The concentricity of a wheel is not less important. It is responsible for the straight running ability and the stability of cycling.
Our production of wheels focuses on all these requirements which are made on a perfect wheel today. Besides, repeated pressure tests during manufacture ensure that the nipples make a perfect sit in the preformed nipple seat and the spoke bends it the spoke hole of the hub flange. All aspects that we apply in the manufacture of a wheel set result in a high-stability product for great cycling experience and the pleasure of using it for a long time.
|tune King/Kong hubs|
For years the King has been at the top of the hub world.
King is milled, lasered and produced in Buggingen. And Tune disassembles it even again in case you need a spare part. Regardless of which. But this seems to be implausible:in it there are the most durable bearings which we know and a 17mm thick axle. Together with our the rear hub Kong, the KINGkong is a combination as strong as an ox.
Unique construction: due to adjustable play no bearing deadlock even at hardest lacing. Solid, uncomplicated, high-quality materials and precision bearings. Perfect manufacture – and absolut robust even under hardest conditions.
