Carbon Rim for Mountain Bikes with Keel-Type Design

EU PATENT PENDING

This patent application relates to a novel design for a carbon rim used in mountain bikes. The rim features a unique keel-type shape that allows for thinner sides and increased thickness in the inner rim where the spokes are attached. This design enhances the strength, durability, and overall performance of the mountain bike rim.

 

Detailed Description:

The carbon rim for mountain bikes described in this patent application includes a keel-type design that provides several advantages over traditional rim designs. The keel shape of the rim allows for thinner sidewalls while maintaining structural integrity and stiffness. Additionally, the inner rim area where the spokes are attached is reinforced with increased thickness to support the stress and load distribution during riding.

 

The carbon rim is manufactured using high-quality carbon fiber materials and advanced molding techniques to ensure precision and consistency in the keel design. The dimensions and angles of the keel shape are optimized for optimal strength-to-weight ratio, providing a lightweight yet robust rim solution for mountain bike enthusiasts.

 

In conclusion, the carbon rim with a keel-type design presented in this patent application offers a significant improvement over existing rim designs in terms of performance, durability, and weight savings. The innovative construction of the rim addresses the specific needs of mountain bikers seeking a reliable and high-performance component for their bikes.

 

Claims:

1. A carbon rim for mountain bikes comprising a keel-type design that allows for thinner sidewalls and increased thickness in the inner rim area where the spokes are attached.

2. The carbon rim of claim 1, wherein the keel shape enhances the structural integrity and stiffness of the rim while reducing weight.

3. The carbon rim of claim 1, further comprising reinforced carbon fiber materials in the inner rim area to support stress and load distribution during riding.

4. The carbon rim of claim 1, manufactured using advanced molding techniques to ensure precision and consistency in the keel design.
