The E.22 X4 is the deepest, lightweight aerodynamic aluminium wheelset on the E.22 arsenal.
It is bold, with a 38mm depth to maximise aerodynamic benefits, but proves lighter than carbon competitors of similar depth. The X4 handles beautifully in the cross-wind, and maintains a high quality ride at high speeds and on bumpy roads.
It boasts performance, but most importantly, the X4 presents value and strives to lead the alloy rim market in the Industry's current reform.
Like the X3, the X4 has a different cross section from its predecessor, the X2, which featured a traditional box-section design. With this new rim shape, we were able to increase lateral stiffness of the overall rim, with a minimal trade-off in weight.
The X4 Disc is the first disc-only rim in the X (Experimental) series. It is designed to be tougher and more stream-lined than the standard non-disc variant.
Our E.22 wheelsets are offered in an array of premium hubs to fulfil the needs and preference of the rider.
Each E.22 wheelset is handbuilt by one of our in-house wheelbuilders. Upon purchase, our wheelbuilders will get in touch with you, to confirm the colours of your components.
Our X4 rims are sandblasted to create a rough finish. The surface is then hard anodised to ensure longevity. Logos are laser etched on.
There are several factors that attribute to the strength, weight and durability of our rims.
If you refer the cross sections above, there are two things you would notice about the competitor's rim.
The first is, there are voids that surround the cross section, and this runs throughout the entire joint section of the rim.
Second, the competitor's rim has walls that are thicker than the E.22. We were able to achieve unparalleled strength and weight qualities in our rims because of a unique alloy that was used in its creation. Nothing is spared, starting with the base material which is largely, high quality aluminium from Australia and proprietary processes after extrusion. The result was a material with twice the tensile strength of conventional alloys.
