Corima Wheelset are here!

The Corima wheels are designed and manufactured in France
Corima is a world leading company in the design and the manufacturing of high performance composite parts. In 1998, Corima puts its technical skills into the manufacturing of wheels and bike frames. Corima’s know-how is unique and their company is well known for its constant innovation. Innovations that involved a real revolution of all the materials in all the cycling disciplines. In this very competitive market, it’s the quality and the innovation of the Corima products that establish the worldwide reputation of the brand.

Due to their experience in working with composite materials, they control all of the steps in the manufacturing process to make your product “unique”: the design, the production, the control and the after-sales service, everything being made in their plant in Loriol sur Drôme (26) in France.

3D – CAD – Tooling – Design
ToolingThe ability to design and produce all the molds, tools and special machines required to properly implement the manufacturing process. This global experience allows them to offer you a range of products of excellent quality and very good value for money.

DesignIn the development of a product, they determine the technical specifications, where they include both their sales department and their customers to clearly understand the product requirements then arrives the phase of conceptual design of the product as well as the design of the production process. They design their own machines to make the products, and this allows them to control the process and to respond quickly to repair, maintenance and quality issues.

Production / Controls
All of Corima products are manufactured at their plant in Loriol sur Drôme (26) in France and are carried out by their qualified, skilled and attentive personnel. To achieve its desired level of performance, Corima has chosen to manufacture its prorducts from pre-impregnated carbon sheets and fibres. Each pre-impregnated part has to be put in position, ensuring that the fibres are correctly orientated in a vital, determined order and with a strict eye on the quality procedure.

Corima have the ability to design and produce all of the assemblies and machines to check the quality and characteristics of the manufactured parts and to ensure the tracking of each manufactured part. Their products are guaranteed against all manufacturing defects for 2 years from the date of purchase. The conditions of use are indicated in the “Owner’s Manual” included with their products.

The aerodynamic of Corima Carbon
At Corima, they place a great deal of importance on the aerodynamic performance of their wheels. Over 20 years ago, they developed a high-performance composite disc wheel. In 1993, Chris Boardman used their equipment, frame and wheels to achieve the most symbolic of records in technological terms.

Since then, they have constantly innovated to maintain their lead, and this has made the Corima range of wheels the most sophisticated in the world for aerodynamics, which is so vital to the cyclist’s performance.

Their experts carry out computer simulations to constantly try and reduce drag. This research involves optimising friction pressure on the various surfaces of the wheel and tyre. They also work to improve the air flow speed and air flow separators on the wheel to obtain a wheel that requires as little power as possible to move forward and spin.

They have designed dozens of prototypes and repeatedly cross-referenced the precise results achieved by their various models on their test benches. When they then validate their best projects in the wind tunnel, they know that the hours of experience that they have accumulated and the use of the most sophisticated technologies make their wheels unique in the world.

The latest aerodynamic research carried out in their research centre has led to a new rim design that they call Concept 2D. This new shape improves air flow and increases the rigidity of the tubular rim.

Concept 2D
Concept 2D, which was first used on the 3 spoke carbon wheel, which is positioned as the best suited wheel to the triathlon and time trials, has now been transposed to the Disc, VIVA “S”, UP “S”, AERO+, WINIUM+ and MCC wheels.

concept_2D

The spoking of corima carbon wheels: 12 spokes on the cassette side and 8 on the left
All their spoked wheels are hand-built. The rear AERO+, WINIUM+, VIVA “S” and UP “S” wheels are built with 20 spokes whose positioning in the rim was very well studied.

The drive side (cassette side) is built with 12 spokes crossed 3 times, a setting that has proven over the years to provide the best transmission of power from the cy- clist to the driving wheel. The left side of the wheel is built with 8 spokes.

This arrangement allows for a more uni- form tension across all of the spokes. This makes the wheel faster providing excellent stiffness. It also improves the wheel’s ability to remain running “true” and in- creases the spokes durability. In addition, this specific spoke arrangement gives the rear wheel a very modern and technical look.

This arrangement allows for a more uniform tension across all of the spokes. This makes the wheel faster providing excellent stiffness. It also improves the wheel’s ability to remain running “true” and increases the spokes durability. In addition, this specific spoke arrangement gives the rear wheel a very modern and technical look.

Carbon and aluminum hubs for carbon wheels
Corima has been designing its own hubs for more than 20 years. The hub is very important on a wheel and it must be designed in the same time of the composite part (rim) in order to optimize the product.

Developed by their design office, their aluminum hubs are made in France from the best alloys by precision engineering specialists using the most up-to-date machining equipment.

The “S” version in chromeplated aluminium benefits from the latest innovation with, for example, a 30-tooth free-wheel ratchet ring and a Ø 17 mm titanium/aluminium spindle.

The carbon model is made with an exclusive moulding technique combining strength and lightness with an exceptional finish. Corima hubs are also fitted with top of the range cartridge bearings.

Carbon AERO+ MCC : The most innovative carbon wheelset
The full carbon wheelset (Including the spokes) “made by Corima” has a unique design* with the most innovative** technical specification. Both the front and the rear aero+mcc wheels are built with only 12 carbon spokes. The aero+mcc wheels will truly be the stars of your bike!

The most appropriate, high performance carbon fiber is used to provide the aero+mcc carbon wheel with excellent rotational inertia without sacrificing its strength. A brand new carbon fiber layering technique has allowed Corima to create the aero+mcc carbon wheels with the minimum number of spokes for improved aerodynamics and lateral stiffness that is far higher than any other competitor’s wheels.

The exceptional quality of these carbon spokes reduces the ground drift while riding and improves your performance. Riding Corima aero+mcc wheelset is pure pleasure! The pleasure of feeling light when climbing, of being faster than ever on flat roads and of being oh so responsive in the sprints!

Carbon AERO+ : Design and performance
The aero+ 2D carbon wheel is the perfect combination of design and performance. This is the ideal wheel for lovers of fine materials looking for optimal performance and versatility.

You will enjoy the design and the finish of the carbon hubs that are built on the aero+ carbon wheels. The aero+ wheelset is the perfect synthesis of the four criteria that have prevailed to its manufacturing: the weight, lateral rigidity, aerodynamics and low inertia in rotation.

The rear aero+ carbon wheel is built with 20 CX spokes, whose positioning in the rim was very well studied. The right side (cassette side) is built with 12 spokes crossed 3 times, a setting that has proven over the years to provide the best transmission of power from the cyclist to the driving wheel. The left side of the wheel is built with 8 spokes.

This arrangement allows for a more uniform tension across all of the spokes. This makes the wheel faster and provides excellent stiffness. It also improves the wheel’s ability to remain running true and increases the spokes durability. In addition, this specific spoke arrangement gives the rear wheel a very modern and technical look.
