The "++Black 90" wheelset is the final development stage of a model series that aims to make the velomobile increasingly suitable for mountain use and therefore also more suitable for long descents at high speed.

Sturmey Archer drum brake hubs in the 90 mm version are used.
The ++Black hub has been equipped with significantly more cooling surface. The space between the hub flanges is optimally filled with this design. The heat sinks have only 0.5mm thick fins and an aerodynamically shaped root. This draws the heat from the drum base and then dissipates it into the surrounding air via the extremely thin slats

The hub is extremely resistant to corrosion. While original silver drum brake hubs develop a gray layer of corrosion over time, the anodized hubs remain almost intact even after years of use in summer and winter. Another advantage is that with the anodized hubs there is less corrosion within the spoke holes. This means that the spoke hole/spoke fit remains very good. With silver hubs, years of exposure to salt can cause the bore to enlarge and thus reduce the spoke tension.

Together with black laser spokes and brass nipples from Sapim, these become our tried and tested Ginkgo velomobile wheels. The DD spokes used are low-fatigue, light and resilient spokes.
By using Polyax nipples in conjunction with special nipple washers, the spokes can run more diagonally into the rim. This is necessary when using hubs with large bolt circle diameters.

The spoke tension in our velomobile wheels is chosen to be very high. This is necessary to counteract the expansion of the drum under heavy thermal loads due to braking maneuvers. The very thin laser spokes absorb part of the voltage drop due to their elasticity in the thinner middle section. This and the spoke tension being as uniform and high as possible ensures that the wheels have a high mileage.

To select the right rims, select the appropriate rim and the number of spokes for the variants.
Most rims are tubeless rims. The reason for this is security. If there is a sudden loss of air, the tire bead gets stuck behind the tubeless hump of the rim. This means that the tire cannot jump off the rim so quickly, safe rolling is guaranteed and the rim is protected by the tire.

Of course, our wheelsets can be supplied for use with 12mm and 15mm axles.
The default is 12mm. When used in A7, W9, M9, A9 and other vehicles with 15mm axles, this can simply be specified when ordering.

All wheelsets are built ready to ride. The wheels were pressed and the spokes were stretched. Nothing needs to be re-centered or re-tensioned here.
Of course, a suitable, high-quality rim tape is already installed upon delivery. We always use tubeless straps twice to ensure the highest possible safety.
In addition, a wheel report is included in which the key data of the wheelset such as concentricity, materials used and spoke tensions are recorded. This data is also stored in our company database so that we can quickly provide the appropriate replacement in the event of damage. To identify the wheels, a 4-6 digit serial number is engraved in the rim well near the valve hole.

If you have any questions when selecting a suitable wheelset, we are happy to advise you by email or telephone.
