In 2018, out of an active passion for cycling, our company was founded, dealing in building carbon wheels.
The wheels which in terms of safety and technical parameters will be at the forefront of renowned manufacturers.
The wheels intended for both amateurs and enthusiasts of "two wheels" as well as future and professional cyclists.
FALCON is the fastest representative of the animal kingdom, reaching speeds of up to 400 km / h !!!
Riding on the FALCON's is like a falcon flight (agile and energetic, calms down at longer distances).
Over the four years, thousands of cyclists and triathletes have trusted our wheels, and their number is growing every day.
We are very happy about it and it confirms that passion breeds professionalism. Professionalism gives quality, and quality is a luxury that you can feel while riding our wheels.
Professionalism is a process, not a destination. This is an additional motivation for us, allowing us to build fast, stiff, reliable and, above all, safe carbon wheels.

HANDBOOK ABOUT WHEELS
1WHAT RIM DEEP SHOULD I CHOOSE FOR MY ROAD BIKE?
38 mm - perfect for mountains, hilly routes, on a flat you will also feel the difference vs lower profiles.
50 mm - perfect for mixed routes, for the mountains for more advanced riders.
60 mm - perfect for flat and hilly areas.
88 mm - perfect for flat areas, dedicated to time trial.
2WHAT KIND OF HUBS SHOULD I CHOOSE?
For road wheels with brake on the rim you can choose between Powerway R36 hubs or DT Swiss hubs (350, 240 exp, 180 exp).
The Powerway R36 rear hub has a system of 3 pawls freehub working on 24 teeth.
All DT hubs are on a rachet system from 18T - 350 (possible upgrade to 36T or 54T) to 36T - 240 exp and 180 exp.
For road and gravel wheels with disc brakes you can choose between F 101 (ratchet 36T) hubs or DT Swiss (350, 240 exp, 180 exp)
The difference in the number of teeth transmitting the drive is nothing but the so-called "Dead movement" or delay of the drive's reaction to the crank movement.
With 18 teeth, that's 20 degrees of "Dead Movement", at 24 - 15 degrees, at 36 - 10 degrees, and at 54 - 6.6 degrees. The difference is especially noticeable during long climbs and sudden acceleration.
In MTB wheels, also when overcoming technical sections, where every fraction of a second counts to transfer the moment of crank rotation to the drive.
The more teeth, the faster the reaction of the drive after crank movement.
If you don't have to fight about every second, the wheels on Powerway R36 or DT Swiss 350 hubs are fine for you.
Gdy natomiast Twój poziom wytrenowania jest na tyle wysoki, że potrzeba szukać przewagi w sprzęcie wtedy warto się zastanowić nad piastami F 101, DT Swiss 240 exp lub DT Swiss 180 exp.
3TUBELESS OR TUBE TIRE?
For MTB and Gravel / Cross-country wheels, we strongly recommend tubeless tires. Possibility of driving at lower pressures without worrying about the inner tube (called snake). Off-road, it also means greater comfort and traction.
In road wheels, tubeless tires mean higher puncture resistance, higher ride comfort thanks to lower pressure, lower rolling resistance, better grip in tight and fast turns. The disadvantages include the need to ensure the presence of air in the wheels if they are not used for a long time so that it does not go to zero, because then it may be necessary to supplement the sealant.
If for some reason you are concerned about the tubeless system in your road bike, then a tire with a tube is also a good solution.
All our road, triathlon and gravel wheels come complete with rim strips that are suitable for both tubes and tubeless systems, without the need for tape use. You can change the system at any time. Just remember to use tubeless tires (TL, TLR markings).
4WHAT PRESSURE IS OPTIMAL FOR MY ROAD WHEELS?
Tire pressure is a very important element affecting the comfort and safety of riding. For our road rims with an inner width of 20 mm, it is recommended to pump no more than:
Tubeless tires Tube tires
25 mm - 92 PSI 25 mm - 106 PSI
26 mm - 91 PSI 26 mm - 105 PSI
28 mm - 90 PSI 28 mm - 104 PSI
32 mm - 88 PSI 32 mm - 103 PSI
5WHAT DOES THE TG RATE MEAN IN THE CARBON RIM SPECIFICATION FOR RIM BRAKES?
TG TG is a value describing the maximum temperature to which a given rim can be heated without affecting its structure. The epoxy resin used in the production of carbon rims, after exceeding this temperature, changes its state of aggregation from solid to gel. At this point, the rim is damaged. Bubbles form on the braking track and the rim deforms irretrievably.
Many of the wheels offered on the market are built using rims with a TG 210 or even lower. We use carbon rims a TG = 250 !!!
A carbon rim has not yet been invented, which cannot be "burned" on a downhill.
Using the right brake pads, taking care of their proper positioning in relation to the rim, skilful braking (pulsating with both brakes at once, brakes applied no longer than 5 seconds) and "not swinging" with high tire pressure will allow you to enjoy your carbon wheels for many years.
Therefore, you can feel safe when you choose our wheels.
6Sapim cx-ray or Sapim d-light spokes?
We use only Sapim cx-ray spokes for the wheels dedicated for road bikes.
These are eliptic spokes (aero), and the road wheel should be as aerodynamic as possible.
W kołach Grawel/Przełaj można dokonać wyboru. Jeśli planujesz używać kół tylko w tym rowerze, to spokojnie możesz zdecydować się na szprychy Sapim d-light. Zwiększają wagę kompletu kół tylko o 24 gramy, a obniżają koszt zakupu kół o 250 pln. Gdybyś jednak planował/a używać tych kół również w rowerze szosowym, to rekomendujemy Ci wybór szprych Sapim cx-ray.
Sapim d-light spokes are a reasonable choice for MTB wheels, but if you want to reduce weight, choosing Sapim cx-ray spokes will take you down by 28 grams.
7WHAT KIND OF BRAKE PADS SHOULD I CHOOSE?
For riding in dry conditions, cork pads, which are free for the purchased wheels, are sufficient.
In wet conditions, we recommend SwissStop inserts for less experienced cyclists.
