Putting a new spin on the wheel.

Rider engineered composite spoke wheelsets.

A Better Riding Experience.

From the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, we are riders releasing the brakes on a sophisticated line of innovative bike components designed, engineered, and tested in one place. With trailblazing composite technologies and unique processes, we have the total handle of our products, giving us a unique advantage in the composite marketplace. We are committed to offering tough, reliable components that make every ride a ride worth bragging about.

We Push The Limits. So Can You.

Handmade in the USA - for over a decade, we have grown and developed our
expertise in composites manufacturing for the industrial world.

Design

Our whole process was holistically engineered specifically for the function of a spoke in a multitude of environments. No corners were cut, allowing for an optimized product that will push the boundaries and capabilities of cyclists and products alike. 

Reinventing the wheel one spoke at a time.

Build

Hand-built in-house, quality guaranteed.  Our team of composites engineers control the process from start to finish.  Once spokes are finished and in hand, they go to our wheel department to be hand-built into the highest quality wheels money can buy.

Built like your ride depends on it.

Test

Stress, Fatigue, Impact, Destruction.  Our products are tested beyond the limits of current test standards, and when no standards exist, our engineering team creates their own to replicate real world extreme use.  Each product undergoes a barrage of tests, ensuring optimum performance over the product life-cycle, as well as the ability to withstand use and abuse out in the field.

We push the limits.  So can you.

Run

Western North Carolina (WNC) and Pisgah National Forest are home to some of the highest and most rugged mountains in the Eastern US, making our home territory the perfect testing arena.  From grueling road and gravel adventures, to over 400 miles of rugged mountain bike trails, we make sure our products can take it all.

Lighter.  Stronger.  Farther.

Our bread & butter—the G-1 Carbon Spoke.

Our carbon spoke wheels will give your bike a distinctively quiet, active, and
lively ride while adding stiffness and dropping rotational weight.

hp-spoke-1

Strength

Higher tensile strength than steel and superior impact toughness.

hp-spoke-2-1

Weight

Our spokes weigh under 3 grams, only 40% of the rotational mass of traditional steel spokes.  They are the lightest replaceable spokes on the market.

hp-spoke-3

Feel

The G-1 spoke absorbs energy without the elongation of steel spokes. This helps maintain a truer rolling wheel under load and provides a comfortable, smoother yet more responsive ride.
