Details

The NOX Falkor 36D Road Disc Carbon Rim is a CFD optimized rim designed around road disc brake bikes and meant for road racing or everyday road riding. The Falkor 36D carbon rim is the result of a new design process NOX calls Weighted Performance Matrix (WPM). What this means is that they consider all aspects of a rim during the design phase, things like the bike it will be on, the terrain it will be used on, the hubs it will be built with, typical head and cross winds, tire sizes, and the list goes on. In the end NOX ended up with a matrix with over 20 parameters and they use this to fine tune aspects of the rim so that the performance is optimized for the specific application. Every aspect of the Falkor rims from the rim profile to the carbon layup schedule to the spoke exit angle is designed using this philosophy. Key characteristics that make the Falkor 36D stand out are it's width and asymmetric offset. During CFD modeling NOX centered aerodynamic studies on 25mm (actual width) tires, so if you are looking for the fasted road rim/tire combo that is what they recommend. The inner width of 20mm and the outer width of 27.7mm create a seamless tire to rim transition at 25mm which is key to maintaining airflow around the leading and trailing edge of the rim. Tire sizes from 23-30mm work just fine as well (some 23mm wide tires measure 25mm wide on the Falkor 36D and are optimal.) Designing an aerodynamic rim with an offset spoke bed is a real challenge, and you won't find many other rims like this out there. The offset of 2.0mm boosts the low-side spoke tension by 13-15% and improves the net bracing angles for a stiffer wheel. The same rim can be used on the front or back by flipping it around. Limited 2 year warranty and crash replacement policy. Rider weight limit of 220 lbs.

Select Number of Rear Spokes - 24, 28 or 32

Details

High spoke counts (having a lot of spokes) and 3X lacing increase the robustness and durability but come with a weight penalty (heavier). Low spoke counts (having less spokes) and 2X lacing decreases the robustness and durability but come with a weight advantage (less weight). You can run a lower spoke count on carbon rims because of the stiffness/strength of carbon. If you need some help or advice, feel free to call or email us. We'll make recommendations based on your unique needs. 1-800-688-8600 or support@coloradocyclist.com.

Description

Your Chris King custom rear wheel with NOX Falkor 36D Disc Carbon rim is proudly handbuilt in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.
Every wheel we turn out is built completely by hand to your specifications. All wheels are tensioned, stress-relieved, then re-tensioned before final truing. We have been building custom wheels since 1977 and take great pride in building the finest wheels available.

These rims can be used with standard tires and tubes, or tubeless tires. (For tubeless ready, please order tubeless tape and valves.) Never exceed your tire's recommended tire pressure.

Please Note:

  • Our wheels are built with a 2-cross or 3-cross lacing pattern (3-cross recommended.)
  • If you intend to use tubeless tires, make sure to select tubeless tape (from the rim tape pull-down menu) and to purchase tubeless valves (available in optional items at the bottom of your build.) Further, select tires from the "Tubeless Ready" tire selection.
  • If you choose to select optional items they will be installed on your wheels (with the exception of the sealant) unless otherwise specified. The sealant is not added because it can leak during shipping. If you are picking up your wheels at our retail location, we can add the sealant for you.
  • Manufacturer warranties are honored for the parts included in your build.
  • Custom wheels typically ship from our shop between 1-3 weeks after you've placed your order depending on how busy our shop is. However, if a part is not immediately available - from us or from our vendors - your build may take longer. We do our best to keep you updated on the situation, and are always happy to provide updates if you reach out. The easiest way to contact us for updates is to send us an email to support@coloradocyclist.com and we will respond as quickly as we can.
Nipple Information
Alloy nipples are much lighter than brass nipples (approximately 20g per wheel) and are recommended for light weight builds. Brass nipples are stronger and less expensive. We've been successfully building wheels with both for many years.

Spoke Information
Colorado Cyclist primarily uses DT Swiss stainless spokes in our builds. This has been our choice for wheel building since the late 1970's and we certainly owe part of our wheel building success to the strength and longevity that DT Swiss spokes offer. We also use the very popular, lightweight and bladed Sapim CX-Ray spokes and have had excellent success with them. Spoke weight, as well as a spoke Performance Chart, are provided in the pull-downs that you'll use to pick your spokes. The Perfomance Chart should be used as a guide to compare the various spokes. However, there are so many variables involved in building a wheel properly (ie. rider weight, terrain, intended use, price, etc.), you may end up with questions. If you need some help or advice, feel free to call or email us. We'll make recommendations based on your unique needs. 800-688-8600 or support@coloradocyclist.com.
