Like all NEWMEN EVOLUTION SL components, the rim consists of a high-strength aluminium alloy and impresses with first-class mechanical properties and low weight.
The exposed flanges not only make this wheelset more resistant to dents and external forces, they also give the tyre a rounder shape and thus more cornering grip. Material usage only where it has to be. The rim profile with straight nipple contact surface is specially designed for use with special washers and ensures very high spoke pull out values, with low wall thickness in this area. Compared to rims of the same weight class, the rim flanges, are much more solid and therefore more robust and resistant. The perfect rim for a wide, light and fast All Mountain wheel set for tyre widths from 2.35" to 2.6". MG-Washer One of the weak points on rims - whether made of aluminium or carbon - are the nipple holes in the rim. Looking at the point contact surface of the nipple on the rim, it is easy to understand that these holes are a weak point. All forces transmitted via the spoke and the nipple (maximum value approx. 300 kg) pull on this small contact surface. You can easily imagine what will happen sooner or later: The rim gets cracks in exactly these places. Looking at the different solutions of the different rim and wheel manufacturers, one can quickly see that there are many different approaches to solve this problem. Newmen did not let this "problem" rest, because all existing solutions could not completely convince Newmen. Last but not least, the MG washer prevents the nipple from "eating" and ensures even friction between nipple and washer. The MG-Washer can also be used for non-NEWMEN rims. The prerequisite is a straight rim base in the area of the nipple hole.
