Nox Composites Interbike 2016

Taking function over form approach to product design

Interbike Sponsored post Wheels
Nox Composites

Nox Composites was founded in 2012 by two engineers and former bike racers in Knoxville, TN. From humble roots, they have grown the company using a grassroots approach, relying primarily on word of mouth, solid product reputation and exceptional customer support. Nox has been innovators since the beginning, bringing game changing ideas to market such as wider rims, asymmetric offset rims, and hookless beads that are now nearly standard in the industry. Nox takes a “function over form” approach to product design, a unique position in an industry which is too often driven by fads and loud colors. Proven at the highest levels of racing, their products have a near cult following and fill a needed niche of high-quality carbon rims at a more obtainable price point. Nox is currently offering eight mountain rims ranging from 23mm to 36mm internal widths, two cyclocross rims, and is developing a full line of aerodynamic road rims for release in spring 2017. Nox also runs a wheel shop out of their Knoxville office, hand building quick-turn custom wheels using top shelf components.

The Skyline rim is a no-holds barred rim aimed at giving racers and “weight conscious” riders the ultimate weapon – a light yet stiff set of wheels with mind blowing acceleration. With an internal width of 23mm, the Skyline matches well with tires in the 2.0-2.25 sizes.
  • Skyline 29 inch weight of 345 grams (per rim) .
  • Skyline 27.5 inch weight of 335 grams (per rim).
  • 23mm internal width, 29mm external hookless bead construction.
  • Disc specific 2.6mm asymmetric spoke offset to increase lateral stiffness by improving net bracing angles. Nox invented the process of building strong asymmetric offset mountain rims and they continue to do it better than anyone else.
  • Patent-pending rim construction techniques including UniWeave and the Anti-Burp Bump.
  • The Skyline is built with a proprietary blend of temperature controlled, short-cycle ultra-high and high modulus fiber.

Nox Farlow 29 & 27.5

The Farlow was designed to provide the advantages of extra-wide mountain rims: lower rolling resistance, increased traction and improved sidewall support, all while keeping weight in check at a respectable 420-430g. The Farlow has proven its durability with success on the World Cup Enduro circuit. As one of the first hookless rims on the market, the Farlow was perfected on the double-black Devil’s Racetrack in Nox’s hometown of Knoxville, TN. With an internal rim width of 29mm, the Farlow works great with tires ranging from 2.3-2.5. The Farlow is at home on 4”-6” travel bikes and is an extremely flexible rim, capable of daily XC/trail rides with weekend trips to the bike park.
  • Farlow 29 inch weight of 430 grams (per rim).
  • Farlow 27.5 inch weight of 420 grams (per rim).
  • 29mm internal width, 35mm external hookless bead construction.
  • Available with a DH-layup adding additional internal support (50g).
  • Disc specific 2.6mm asymmetric spoke offset to increase lateral stiffness by improving net bracing angles. Nox invented the process of building strong asymmetric offset mountain rims and they continue to do it better than anyone else.
  • Patent-pending rim construction techniques including UniWeave and the Anti-Burp Bump.

Nox Zolder Tubular 700c

The Zolder tubular is the industry’s first asymmetric disc-specific tubular composite rim. Designed for CX or Disc-road racing, the asymmetric offset improves the bracing angles of the wheel to improve net lateral stiffness and overall wheel durability. Nox developed a 23mm wide C-shaped gluing surface that contours perfectly to the most common 30mm-38mm tires. This shape saves significant effort during the installation process and provides a secure bond.
  • Zolder 700c tubular weight of 315 grams (per rim)
  • 23mm gluing surface, 26mm at widest point
  • 23mm C-shaped gluing surface designed around cyclocross tubulars
