Product Info

It takes a whole steaming cauldron of magic to reinvent the wheel, but that's just what Evil has done with their Evil Loophole Boost Wheelset. The rims are made from FusionFiber™, a material that's stronger, quieter, and cleaner than traditional carbon. These mystical rings are laced to Industry Nine Hydras, stalwarts of high end wheelsets that just will not let you down. A wheelset made for the type of riding we've come to expect from Evil, the Loopholes are clean and dialed. No technicalities here, just straight up trail ripping!

Product Details

Features

A Quieter BikeLoopholes 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.

Stiff Yet CompliantBut 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.

Deadened VibrationLoopholes 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.

Removable DecalsDon’t want to rep Evil on your ride? Prefer the clean look? Loopholes feature removable decals so you can let those sweet, sweet black wheels shine. Want to fly the Evil freak flag? There is a a rainbow of decal color options available.

Metal Where It MattersThe little details matter, like robust high-quality 6061-T6 aluminum valve stems and valve core tool integrated into the alloy valve cap.

Rims

Superior Impact ResistanceLoopholes 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.

Fusion-Fiber™ CarbonLoopholes 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.
