When it comes to adventure riding there is no substitute for a set of Woody's Superlite & Superlaced Wheels.
Born and bred on the dirt race tracks of Colorado, Woody developed the concept of Superlacing during his days on the racing circuit over 40 years ago. Woody re-engineered the standard lace pattern to allow for a stronger, safer & more dynamic wheel that can take punches without compromising integrity.
After studying the problem of broken spokes, Woody discovered that it would be possible to strengthen the structure of the wheel by altering the lace pattern so that each spoke was routed as closely as possible to a 90 degree angle between the hub and rim. This allows for the most direct transfer of energy through the spoke to the hub and rim. Since this method requires drilling the rim holes to point in a new direction, Woody decided to add to the strength factor by drilling and countersinking the rim to allow for oversized spokes and nipples. Called SUPERSIZING, this process spreads the workload over a larger surface area under the nipple. The net result is the ability to torque the spokes tighter than possible with OEM spokes and nipples making a stronger, more durable wheel.
Through the years we've seen a lot of stock wheels come through the shop in all sorts of conditions. After witnessing the poor state of stock hubs, Woody designed a lighter, stronger & better looking "Superlite" hub for BMWs & KTMs. Our expert wheelsmiths combine our Superlite Hubs with Excel Rims, beefy American made stainless steel spokes and nipples & Superlacing to form the strongest and lightest wheels available. On average, the front wheels are 5lbs lighter and the rear are 4lbs lighter! Experience the Superlite difference.
