Spank Unveils New Mountain Wheelsets
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.
