Our road technology

Carbon rims & wheels technology

From basalt brake surface to special aero designs. We use the last innovations to build the strongest, lightest and most efficient wheels on the market. Every year we introduce the best production processes and materials to give you a wheel ready to survive all your adventures.

i01E.C.S.

Extra Carbon Strip. Provide extra stiffness on spoke holes. Ensure the rims will not be damaged if a spoke brakes and allows a better spoke tension. Our rims are capable of withstanding a spoke force of 300kgf.

i02C.S.T.

Carbon stabilizer.
The incredibly strong Cyanacrylat composite center is the backbone of our brake walls.
Makes our clincher rims 90% stronger than regular carbon rims.

i03B.S.T.

Basalt Brake Surface.
Braking process under control.
More safety for riders high durability of braking area, wear will be significantly reduced.

i04T.I.F.

Titanium Reinforcement.
A stronger structure that helps to resist impacts and heat generated by continuous braking.

 i05W.A.D.

23mm Wide Aero Design.
More aerodynamics, can run lower pressure.
For comfortable ride, better cornering and pinch flat protection.

 

i06HI-TG

Multilayer High Modulus Carbon with High TG Epoxy Resin. Enhance the toughness maintain the stiffness of the resin system. Resist the deformation of continuous braking.

i07FREEWHEEL Interchange

Freewheel compatibility 10/11 speed
Shimano™ SRAM™ Campagnolo™

i08HAND BUILT

Extremely durable hand built wheel.
High durability and high precision.

i10TURBINE HUB Inside

Alloy 7075T6 CNC machined Light hubs.
Big ENDURANCE and low rolling resistant bearings.
A very strong 15mm rear hub axle and aluminum cassette body with three pawl ratchet mechanism.

i09ULTRALIGHT

As much as possible less weight.
Light weight wheels provide much better acceleration and climb

i11TURBINE ULTRA HUB Inside

Alloy 7075T6 CNC machined SUPER Light hubs.
High precision low rolling resistant bearings.
A very strong 15mm rear hub axle and aluminum cassette body with three pawl ratchet mechanism.
Upgrades available: Titanium ratchet and ceramic bearings.

i12CRASH POLICY

A unique service for those who crashed their wheels!
In case of bad luck, PROGRESS supports you by offering replacement rims for half the regular price during 1 year after purchase.

The third generation carbon rims

Over six years’ developing, PROGRESS’s carbon rims have been upgraded from the first generation to the third generation.
Comparing with the second generation carbon rims, the new rims produced by more advanced technology with better materials, therefore, they possess better stability and security.

Our evolution, from 1st to the 3rd generation.

(PURGATORY Carbon Clincher)

We only use the best carbon fiber

The biggest feature of PROGRESS is quality first.

From material purchasing, producing, testing, packaging to shipping, PROGRESS has perfect manage system which makes sure every customer receive high quality items.

We not use UD carbon for the rims

We actually use multiple layers of different types of carbon.
Only the outer layer is made from a UDF (Uni-Directional Fiber).

A mixture of different angles to resemble a uniform material. Because carbon fiber can handle tension very well, we have to mix up the layers to make the rim stiff and strong enough.

Pressure is not a great feature of a fiber. Just think of a string being pushed. But when mixed correctly, the different angles interconnect through the resin to make it resistant to all kinds of forces.

Why PROGRESS wheels aren’t the lightest on the markets?

Durability is one of the goals set by PROGRESS from the get-go.

Therefore we demand more of our rims than we would if we had lower spoke tensions in our wheels or if we had weight limits for our wheels. For instance, our rims have reinforced strips where the spoke holes are placed, to ensure that high tensions are not an issue.

In a regular rim, you can’t control the specific stresses by layup only. The spoke force is concentrated around the nipple hole. With a pre-defined reinforcement strip [3], we can put the right fibers at the right place. The spoke force is spread out through the reinforced strip and distributes the stresses over a larger part of the rim.

The rims are now capable of withstanding a spoke force of 300kgf. This force is around the same as the ultimate strength of the spoke itself. And we only use the best and the lightest spokes available on the market today, so you can imagine how durable the wheels are when the rims are laced up by professional wheel builders.
