INNOVATION INSIDE


As the industry is moving ahead, so is Mach 1. Our team of passionate people strives to bring you innovative solutions to improve your wheels by providing you with answers to the challenges you are facing. Easy Tubeless Ready and Wide Angle System are just two examples of Mach 1’s drive to move ahead.





EASY TUBELESS READY


  • Easy mounting
  • Better grip of tyre on rim
  • ETRTO patent compatiblity



MACH1 WIDE ANGLE SYSTEM


Better alignment between nipples, spokes and hub



SPOKES FINISH


Cataphoresis:

A surface finishing, which is particularly adapted for steel spokes because of the roughness of its surfaces. This process can be used for stainless steel spokes with prior treatment.

Oxidation:
In-depth treatment, within the material, which is adapted for stainless steel spokes.



STAINLESS STEEL 18/8 WHY?


18% CHROMIUM / 8% NICKEL = THE IDEAL MATERIAL FOR MAKING SPOKES
Its characteristics are:

  • Excellent break resistance: 1160N/mm2
  • Excellent elasticity: 1060N/mm2
  • Stretching point up to 14%
  • Corrosion resistance

All of these mechanical characteristics result in the production of stable, tough and robust spokes. They are also, and this is not their only quality, perfectly suited to machine and robot wheel assembly. The stainless steel 18/8 spokes adapt to fit the stresses of torsion which they undergo and enable efficient assembly productivity.
The final and most important reason to use stainless steel spokes is their strong resistance to a wet and salty environment.
After 1008 hours exposure in salt chamber testing no evidence of corrosion is observed.

STICKER DESIGN


For OEM customers, Mach1 rims are available in 5 kinds of cosmetics :



Mach1 stickers as introduced by pictures through this catalogue.


Mach1 stickers colour-coordinated with your branding or bike frame.


Black normative patch for a neutral and sober design.


Co-branded stickers with graphics and colours up to choice, but keeping the Mach1 logo and legal information.


Tampon-printed graphic – a different solution to have your logo on the rims with increased flexibility at a better price. This is possible for overlap logos of maximum 15 cm x 2 cm with Mach1 Logo and legal information included.
