What is the Fore Technology?

Originating from aeronautics, Fore appeared in 1999 on the design of aluminium rims (Ksyrium and Crossmax), then extended to the carbon range in 2021 (Cosmic SLR).

FORE ALLOY (1999)

Forming the equivalent of an insert drilled directly in the material. By pressing aluminium on the lower wall of the rim, a threaded tunnel is created allowing us to screw the spoke nipples directly.

FORE CARBON (2021)

With carbon, the process differs, but the result remains the same. An aluminium insert is moulded into the rim between the carbon layers to ensure a reinforced junction between the spoke and the rim.

The result

THE RESULT

Aluminium or carbon, both processes mark the end of the drilling of the rim's upper deck. Smooth, intact, without any roughness: no longer need to tape!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Thanks to Fore technology, we have managed to considerably lose weight, without losing stiffness or durability.

What are the benefits?
Increased durability & Better stiffness

INCREASED DURABILITY

The precision of our tools allows us to reinforce the rim only at the critical points and leaves the upper bridge of the profile totally integrated, without any mechanical weakness. This allows us to design rims with greater durability.

 

BETTER STIFFNESS

The wheel is 30% stiffer because the upper bridge of the rim isn't drilled.

EASIER TIRE MOUNTING & MAINTENANCE & WHEEL SEALING

There's no tape needed as the rim isn't drilled, this benefits the weight and sealing of the wheel. In addition, the absence of holes ensures that the wheel is fully sealed.

 

TUBELESS COMPATIBILITY

With a naturally waterproof rim, it is then possible to use a tubeless tyre without the addition of a rim tape and without the risk of air leaking during the entire life of the wheel.

Weight

WEIGHT SAVINGS

Due to the stiffer and more durable rim, we can reduce the number of spokes to make the wheel lighterThe absence of rim tape saves 30g per wheel as well.

EASY SPOKE REPLACEMENT

If a spoke breaks, you no longer need to remove the rim tape, the tire, or the cassette! Simply unscrew it and remove it from the insert.
