I have worked with AX Ligtness thru Fairwheelbikes and I can say nothing but very positive results.

I do love my now soon to be 7 year old AX Lightness Sprint saddle too!

While I am not a carbon frame consumer I do find it of the new frame of great interest especially since it embraces the thing we love. Function, reliability, longevity and light weight.

Sorry EightFiveTwo, i did not answer your question.

During this summer we concentrated on clincher/Tubeless MTB rims. Our technologies worked out to be extremely good. Those rims are superstiff and can carry impacts better than any other CF rim . The weight is 318g @ 25mm internal width ans 29" .

This technology is now runing into a road clincher rim. Our plan is to introduce it in late December .


Thank you for your answer. I have the SRT 42, and would love to get my hands on the clincher version when they become available ! :thumbup: Any idea on when the clincher may become available for us to order?

Good luck to you and your company.

We are in contact with several US companies regarding dealerships. I hope to contract two or three of them until the end of this year. I will keep you posted.

Care to give a bit more infor (sneak peak) at the new clincher rims? i would love to know more about them, especially if they are close to the weight of the current mtb clincher.

i think i might support the site sponser and order this frame from starbike.

btw, strictly bicycles had told me they were in talks with you to carry your wheels.

Hello Spytech,

we will start with a low but aero profile of 28mm . 20/24 spokes. The rims are 26mm wide . The weight is going to be arround 1000g for a wheelset. Price arround 2600 EUR .

I don´t know how to post some CAD pictures of the final version of the frame . But if someone wants to see them just send me a email . This someone could then post them here ( sorry, computers are a nightmare for me )

Greetings from Bavaria ! Axel

This is an email response from Axel from AX::

"The rims will weight aprox 260g . Like all of our rims they have no limit for spoke tension.

Please find attached some screenshots of the VialEvo. The dropouts and brakemount are missing because we do not want to show them yet."

Here are the images spoken of ::

hi, axel, welcome. i provided the name for your crank, MORPHEUS.

i also have been an ax lightness customer for well over a decade and have almost every ax lightness product ever made.

the vial is a very drool worthy frame.
