Fratelli Industries, which has operated a wheelset factory in Taiwan for the past two and a half years, recently started to produce its own rims. According to a spokesman the start in rims was out of frustration with its suppliers that instead of the required 6061 alloy frequently delivered the rims in 6005 quality.
With its enhanced product portfolio Fratelli Industries is now going global and celebrates that with a presence at Taipei Cycle 2012.
Fratelli Industries’ 2012 rim range includes the FX Series made from Dynamal alloy. Fratelli claims that this material is 50% stronger compared to 6061-T6. The Dynamal FX Series offers 4 different versions of double wall rims. Each one is specifically targeted to certain bicycle models. The FX25 XXX series is especially suited for use in downhill and electric bikes.
