EVIL Loopholes are currently available as a 29" wheel set in both boost (148x12) and super boost (157x12) rear wheel configurations. Along with 6-bolt and centerlock brake mounts, 15mm standard or Torque Caps and XD or microspline drivers there is an option to fit most bike set ups.
Loopholes are made with FusionFiber which utilizes long-chain polymers instead of the brittle and toxic epoxies and resins used in typical carbon fiber.
This makes it possible to absorb impacts through microscopic flexing in the fibers and to radially dissipate shock throughout the rim. As a result, rims made with FusionFiber offer a smoother ride and much higher impact resistance.
Loopholes feature a 20% improvement in impact resistance over comparable carbon fiber rims. What does it mean for riders? More confidence. These wheels stand up to the abuse mountain biking is known for.
Loopholes are noticeably quieter than traditional carbon wheels due to our unique noise-eating material. The quieter ride is attributed to the rim material working in the background to make your ride not only more stealth, but smoother and more controlled.
But what does it mean? Vertical stiffness is important for strength and control. Too much vertical stiffness can reduce ride quality. “Compliant” is a bike industry engineering nerd term which measures how much the material is allowed to deflect. Loopholes offer a perfect balance of stiffness and compliance which allows the wheels to absorb more of the vertical and side-to-side shock that happens as you hold the straight line through rocky, challenging sections. Long story short: they make for easier, radder riding.
Loopholes absorb bumps in the road with a mind blowing 50% improvement in vibration damping. This lets less trail travel up into your hands and feet. That means longer days and less effort to enjoy all your favorite single track.
Reinforced spoke bosses boast greater than 950lb pull through force. That’s a full 15% improvement over non-reinforced spoke faces.
