2015 PLAYELL PRO ROAD CARBON WHEELSET - CLINCHER 38C
The Wheels Suitable For All Conditions & More Aerodynamics
UPGRADES FOR 2015
Time To Make It Wider
Now 2015 new wheels can accept 25mm wide tires. Because at the same
air pressure, a wider tire encounters less resistance of rolling
than a narrower tire.
We don`t have to make it a complicated report in this case. It is
all attributed to the contact patch. At equal pressure, a 25mm tire
has a "wider but shorter" contact patch, while a 23mm tire has a
"slimmer but longer" contact patch. As it was very well explained
by the chart below from Continetal, at the same inflation pressures
and tire loads, it needs to cost more energy to deform the tire.

It is obvious from the above photo, with a wider tire at same
pressure, rider wastes less energy on deforming the material. And
in other words, this means that rider will go faster, get more
speed, comfort, and handling.
In certain condition, you may need 23mm tire as well, but there
should be no worry, you can still mount 23mm tire on a 2015 Pro
Wheel, which is both compatible with both 23mm and 25mm tires.
When riding in a windy condition, rider has to fight against the
drag from the cross wind. With bladed spokes used in most of th e
road wheels, the spokes become part of the drag source. To improve
the crosswind performance, we make the spoke width from 3.2mm to
2.3mm, but matain the bladed shape. It`s is a small change but cut
back the contact with cross wind, without losi ng aero performance
in none-wind condition.
Furthermore, to cut through the air better, we change the spoke
shape from a "Box" to be a "Olive", this shape is sharper on both
ends, it lets the wind from ahead pass smoothly, slightly result in
faster wheels spinning and riders energy saving .

Specialized Package For World Wide Shipping
Shipping damage used to be a problem in the world wide delivery, in
order to solve this, we designed a new box with strong inside
structure. It will protect your wheels from violently throwing and
pressure on the long trip.
Inside the box, there is uniquely designed structure to fix the 2
wheels in position, so it can handle the strong shaking during the
The box may be damaged during the shipping, but you will get
complete and brand new wheels finally.
- We guarantee the wheel sets purchased from us to be free from
manufacturing defects for a period of 1 year since the date you

DESCRIPTION OF THE PRO SERIES
Safety Is The Essential Demand
To be sure that our wheels are strong enough to be safe, all of our
wheels endure lots of testing in the lab. We test wheel prototypes
at varies pionts, including Forward Strength, Lateral Tortion and
Spoke Hole Tension. Here we only present the test reports for 38mm
Just like the 38mm depth wheels, all our models have been tested in
different conditions, they are proven to be able to handle riders
LIGHT BUT DURABLE
Reaching Balance Between Weight And Quality
Carbon rim is mixed up by layers of carbon material in different
angles, the more layers we put in a rim, the stonger it becomes, as
a result, the weight is also increased. So we have to find a
balance between weight and strength. After testing a lot of
prototypes in different amount of layers, we found the balance, now
the rims we are using for Pro Series are strong enough to handle a
heft of 300kgs, but their weight are still controlled to be light
enough for you to build a lightweight bike.
By a limitation of the weight, if the single layer carbon fiber can
be stronger, we will be able to bring more durability to a rim, so
the carbon fiber is all-important for a rim. We have choosen Toray
Japan to be our exclusive carbon fiber supplier, their ability to
supply stable quality is well known by the industry. Our whole
product line is using their T700SC carbon fiber, which supports us
make our wheels strong and durable.
High Tensile Carbon Toray T700C
Material is crucial for a rim, so we select material very
carefully. There are 3 main places producing carbon fiber material,
they are Japan, Taiwan and China Mainland. Toray Japan is the
largest and best carbon producer in the world, their products are
used in many of the airplanes.
The carbon we use is T700SC from Toray, although Toray's price are
almost 2X than those from Taiwan and 3X than China Mainland,
comparing the durability and stiffness it brings, it is definitely
Carbon material is 8 times as strong as steel by weight, but is not
so good at handling impact forces. We mix 9 layers of the carbon
material in different angles, a mixture of different angles
resemble a uniform material,and they make the rim body resistant to
all kinds of forces.
35+4 Layer Spoke Hole Wall
Spoke hole burden most of the weight, for the spoke hole wall, we
use as many as 39 layers to make it, these layers make the rims
extremely stiff and durable.
Extra 4 Layers On The Braking Track
By adding 4 extra layers of carbon material to the braking track,
the braking track is much more durable, but not add much extra
Basalt Fiber Braking Surface
Heat can result instability to the Carbon Fiber, but not to the
Basalt Fiber, a Basalt material can maintain it's stability under
760 Centigrade. By applying a layer of Basalt fiber on the braking
surface, our Pro series can take much more higher temperature than
other full carbon wheels. We have tested this by riding the Pro
wheeset 450C on a 5km long descending at 35km/H average speed.
The Smoother, The Faster
It's simple to understand that the smooth rolling can make your
work more efficient, then you go faster, and the smooth braking can
make you have more control, then you have more efficiency on the
turn. We make our wheels rolling and braking smoothly by applying
some special material into the wheels design:
How fast of a bicycle is most determined by the performance of it's
revolving components, wheels are the main components of a bicycle.
This makes it reasonable to upgrade the bearings, as by upgrading
to ceramic bearing enjoy a lot of benefits over the steel
|Higher hardness of rolling element|
- Better wearability
- Greater durability
- Longer service life
- Lightweighting the system
- Lower centrifugal force during rotation, consequently less
bearing wear and heat generation and bearings can run at higher
- Increase the rigidity of system
- Less sphere deformation under load and this will transfer energy
|Higher precision and better surface finish of ceramic balls|
- Less friction between ceramic balls and races
- Less wear
- Less maintenance or maintenance free
- Races will not block due to rusty
- Less magnetic contaminations to be magnetized into the raceway
that can affect smooth rotation and destroy the raceway
- No galvanically stimulated corrosion
- Can be used in application that requires electrical isolation
Our patened brake pads are made of the Ceramic Fiber material, they
match perfectly with our Basalt Braking Surface, to provide QUIET
and SMOOTH braking experience.
Also they have some great features other than then the traditional
brake pads material,
- They work normally even in the rain.
- Maintain the temperature under 248 Fahrenheit when braking.
Carbon Fiber can deal with tension very well, but it's not good at
handling high temperature, in order to provide the smooth braking,
we have to increase the Temperature Resistance for Clincher wheels.
We use the Basalt material instead of Carbon Fiber when making the
braking track, it increases the rim Temperature Resistance for
about 150 Fahrenheit and conducts heat much better than Carbon
Fiber. Basalt material increases the brake performance in wet
condition without increasing the wear and tear on the braking
This means that our rims can last longer than ordinary carbon wheel
rims with the Basalt material. And this technology can also help
our rims to stand wear and tear.
Quality Should Not Be Luxurious
We hold the whole supply chain to support us provide the affordable
price while present the high quality products.
