Most people know Spank Industries for their role in developing components to service the niche gravity segments of our market over the past decade. Last year Spank turned a lot of heads, offering a World Cup DH proven, sub 2,000 gram wheelset, retailing at just € 400.
However at Eurobike 2012 Spank will launch a whole new line of highly weight optimized All Mountain and Trail products. Oozy is a line of cockpit and wheel components designed to offer all the performance of Spank’s burlier freeride and downhill gear, but in a sleek, light weight package.
All new Oozy EVO Wheelsets are a step forward for the Trail and All-Mountain segment. Based on Spank’s patented “Oohbah” Profile, 21 millimetre inner width, Dynamal Alloy Oozy EVO Rims, they afford a trim contour without compromising responsive performance and durability.
Laced to a polished straight pull 28H hub, with legendary Sandvick T302 triple butted spokes and alloy nipples, the Oozy EVO Wheelset weighs in at a respectable 1,600 gram in 26-inch (1,750 gram in 29-inch).
Spank is showing prototype 650b versions too, and will be offering several models of aftermarket rims in 650b (both 28H and 32H) immediately.
