In this week’s gear roundup, we’re taking a look at some crazy limited edition wheels from SPENGLE, celebratory helmets from Kask, breathable workout tees by Kitsbow, and a derailleur hanger alignment tool from Unior.
SPENGLE reveals their insane wheel Collection
Swiss wheel manufacturer SPENGLE has a lot to show off at Eurobike this year. As you may have noticed, the Collection series of wheels includes some incredible design collaborations with artists from Europe and the US. They used their fail-safe monocoque tri-spoke wheels as the canvas for crazy designs. The series includes Chromeo ($5,900), Lava, Popping Cherry ($3,500), Iridescent ($7,100), and Neon Glitch ($7,300) paint schemes. Some of which take over 40 hours of detailing to finalize and are limited to as little as 1 set. Each pair is 650b and has an internal width of 24mm. They use Centerlock disc mounts and will have the axle width finalized before being delivered. There are a total of 10 sets available.
Additionally, SPENGLE will be showing off some 3D printed previews of their upcoming 700c wheels at Eurobike. So be sure to check back with us during our coverage for updates.
