Corima presents new shape of the MCC DX wheels

Three years of research and development with a single clear focus : designing and producing a disc brake wheelset to cover all aspects of racing, from lightweight and superior stiffness for climbing to optimizing aerodynamics and control for fast descends and flat roads.

Carbon aero spokes
The new shape of the MCC DX wheels has been designed to reduce air drag. This new design results in a 9% (front wheel) and 18% (rear wheel) aerodynamic improvement (compared to a 2019 model).

MCC wheels are assembled using only 12 spokes (FR and RR). This pairing of the spokes leads to a considerable reduction in resistance and influence from cross winds. Giving the rider more control.

The placement of the 6 anchor points of the spokes inside the rim, uniformly distributes the extra weight of these anchors. This setting creates a very low level of rotational inertia, perfect for high-speed climbing and for rapid accelerations during races.

D2T: Double torque technology
Corima’s D2T system on the rear wheel overcomes the biggest obstacle for full carbon disc brake hubs – torque in both directions from pedaling and braking. The company succeeded in producing a full carbon disc brake rear hub that is strong enough to withstand these forces.

Front wheels only need to be strong enough to deal with this torque when braking. Rear wheels need to be able to handle these forces during acceleration and braking. The Y-shaped carbon configuration where 2 spokes are joined ensures the distribution of forces during acceleration and braking.

The Y-shaped joint allows to produce a full carbon wheel that is unrivalled in performance, weight, strength and stiffness with a unique and race-ready appearance.

Torsion box technology
Corima ’s secret behind its incredible stiffness : weight ratio is hidden in the rim structure.

All Corima wheels are filled with a structural foam and a horizontal UD carbon fiber bar to increase overall rigidity and strength. The Torsion Box concept created and patented by Corima in the 90’s, significantly reduces the flex found in all hollow carbon rims. This stiffness allows for enhanced power transfer in the most direct way possible to the ground, to push the bike forward. Because of this internal structure, the wheel is able to keep its trueness better under load. This core also helps to absorb both vibrations and sound for a quiet and more comfortable ride.
