About Handsling Wheels
Do you know who made your wheels? I don't mean which company; I mean which person? Handsling wheels are built by hand in the UK by master wheelbuilder, Ian Lynch, who is the most obsessive person we know. Everything has to be just right, perfect actually, otherwise he will not accept it. It is all about the details with Ian.
Wheelbuilding used to be thought of as some sort of dark art but Ian works another way. He doesnt rely on feel to build a wheel. He uses science and fact. Everything is planned in advance, calculated in minute detail and then built up using only the best precision tooling.
For example, unable to find anything suitable on the market, he went as far as to develop his own software in order to help him build better wheels. It helps calculate spoke lengths and record tensions for different combinations of various rims and hubs. It even calculates the weight of various combinations so we can give you an idea of that special wheelset's final wheel weight.
He uses this software to record the tension of every spoke in every wheel he builds so he can provide better service to clients in the future. Think about that: every rim we produce has a unique serial number embedded into the carbon so with a Handsling wheel we can tell you the exact tension of every spoke in your exact wheel and can provide a certificate of proof with your wheel.
Our rims are built by a specialist rim manufacturer in China. They do not build frames, just rims. We chose to work with them as they are the best at what they do and their rim quality is second to none. They only use Toray carbon when making Handsling rims and they are one of the few OEM manufacturers to have UCI approved rims of their own.
As with our frames, Handsling rims are built alongside rims for some of the biggest wheel brands in the world.
We only use Sapim cx-ray spokes in our wheels. Strong, light and aero, they are the best in the business. Period.
They stretch a lot and so can be tensioned perfectly to build an energy efficient, fast wheel.
Our hubs are made in Taiwan by one of the largest hub manufacturers in the business.. The rear hub features 6 pawls instead of the usual 4 resulting in more immediate pick up. They are lighter than anything else we could find on the market and they are very easy to service.
The Handsling hubs are black and have the round HANDSLING headtube logo laser etched in white onto every hub. They look super cool.
We can upgrade your hubs to ceramic bearings using our excellent HSC Ceramic bearings for a small extra cost. Please enquire when ordering.
