With a century of real world experience Ryde knows a thing or two about the rims they create. Acquiring the well known rim manufacturer Rigida in 1989, Ryde added a wealth of knowledge and expertise dating back to 1908 to their already impressive production prowess. Hailing from the Netherlands Ryde has always been a stickler for quality control, producing each rim within their own factories, Ryde has direct control over production quality in each product they deliver to the customer. From the beginning Ryde has been producing rims specifically for cycling with valuable feedback and input from riders and mechanics.
The Pulse Sprint is the perfect candidate for your next lightweight wheelset. This fully tubeless compatible rim is in a weight class with many carbon rims. With its balance of weight to stiffness the Pulse Sprint is not only a superb race day option but also an ultra light all-round contender. Created using Ryde’s special alloy chosen specifically for its properties in strength and stiffness these rims have a surprisingly low weight while maintaining their rigidity. Featuring Ryde’s Front and Rear specific design, the front rim is manufactured with a symmetric cross section. The rear rim however has been optimized with an off center design to allow for more even spoke tension for a more balanced and longer lasting wheel build. The offset design is becoming increasingly popular as hub flanges get pushed further inboard to accommodate 11 speed drivetrains.This change is hub designs has created large differentials in drive side vs. non drive side spoke tension which can lead to premature spoke failure. Ryde’s choice of anodising produces a color unlike many of the common rims on the market today. Similar in hue to Rigida’s hard anodising from many years ago but with a softer, darker, matte charcoal look. A truly unique choice when it comes to rims the Pulse Sprint is the all around option focused on shaving weight.
Please note that Symmetrical rims are designed for front wheel use while Offset rims are intended to be built up as rear wheels.
