Interbike show, Las Vegas, USA, September 26-30, 2005, Las Vegas, USA, September 29, 2005
A single spoke runs uninterrupted
from one side of the rim to the other. The hub is still mounted in the centre of the wheel, of course, but the hub doesn’t encounter nearly as much stress as in traditional wheel construction. This apparently allows Topolino to make their carbon hubs much lighter since the spoke end isn’t actually anchored there.
