ENDURO

Developed for strength, performance, and durability, Gulo’s GME 30 wheel system offers compliance in the most challenging terrain. Ready for any trail on the mountain, this wheelset is a Goldilocks blend of high performance, lightweight, and rock-smashing toughness, all built around our proprietary triaxial braided spokes, developed, tested, and manufactured by Gulo in Brevard,  Western North Carolina.

Performance

Just because a wheel can handle aggressive trail riding and take big hits doesn’t mean it should weigh or slow you down. The GME 30 wheel system combines a beautifully finished and durable carbon rim, our G1 spokes, and a user-serviceable hub to create a wheelset that can rally the toughest trails. Think of it as functionality meeting practicality with a side of high performance. While the phrase “confidence-inspiring” is far overused, confidence is what you’ll have when you’re going mach-fast through rocks, roots, jumps, and chutes, deep in the forest, or on the way to the podium.

"These wheels were built for Pisgah. They made a new bike newer. I feel more connected to the trail. I can carry more speed in and out of corners. Climbing over technical terrain I feel like I have way more control.
-  Mathew C.

Durability

Lighter.  Stronger.  Farther.

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.

"I have been enjoying my PNF Enduro wheels. They track well and keep a good tire contact to the ground through tech DH and climbing. The carbon woven spokes are tough as nails. People get hesitant when they hear carbon spokes but these cut into a branch that got sucked into my wheel with no damage, wheel Tru."
- Tim H.

Compliant

Our widest rim offering at 30mm inner rim width(IRW) for our PNF MTB series allows you to not only run up to a 2.7" tire but also provides compliance that is unlike any other wheel on the market. The G1 Composite Spoke of the GIS (Gulo Integrated System) reduces vibration and trail chatter to help minimize hand fatigue. When riding all day long, the last thing you want to be dealing with is loose control because of arm pump when you are sending it with your crew. Finally, arrive at the bottom of your favorite trail and still have the ability to grip your bars.

 "I've been running the GME-30 wheelset for almost two years now. It drastically improved bike feel and handling for me. They are stiff and compliant at the same time. Gulo promptly service the wheels when the tune-up was due. They have seen a lot of rocks, roots and rots without any major issues. If you are looking for a very light and durable wheel set — I can highly recommend them.

GIS

Gulo’s wheel system was designed around our proprietary G1 spoke as a lightweight, high-performance package. Every detail is thought out to provide the ultimate ride experience: ‘Easy Thread Interface’ hubs interface seamlessly with the spokes, providing the ideal angle for maximum performance and durability…reducing the stress and fatigue that plagues traditional spokes. Couple this with our proprietary G1 Hidden Nipple that keeps stresses on the rim bed at bay, and you have the Gulo Integrated System. We may be biased, but we think it’s simply the best approach to building the best wheels that are out there and we’re confident enough to stand behind it. No questions asked.

Why reinvent the spoke? What makes Gulo’s G1 spoke unique? Well, a lot of things…

The Gulo G1 spoke is a triaxially braided composite built out of a unique and proprietary blend of materials. When the team at Gulo developed the spoke, weight and durability were at the forefront of the design. The G1 spoke is insanely light, weighing less than half of its steel spoke counterpart. And, while weight is important, it only matters if it’s tough. Fortunately, the G1 spoke is exactly that. It’s designed to handle an impact without failing, leaving you standing on the side of the trail. How is this even possible? Well, we can’t share all that much of the actual process but, it’s a proprietary mixture of aerospace-grade alloys and bonding agents coupled with our composite spoke and some engineering techniques you’ll be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

Hooked Tubeless Ready

The GME 30 rim is specifically engineered to compliment our G1 spoke. With a 30mm internal width, 24-holes, asymmetric drilling, and a 25mm depth, it’s made for trail-enduro width tires and whatever trail you want to ride. Straight out of the mold and ready to go, there’s no sanding or adding of a top-coat necessary. The finish is durable enough to handle the rocks the mountains throw without so much as a scratch.

Gulo’s hubs are the foundation of our system wheels.

The Easy Thread Interface (ETI) hub is designed to allow the G1 spoke to pull in a straight line, joining the rim as it naturally should, creating less stress and more durability, with a longer lifespan than many more traditional wheels. Our hubs feature our patented “anti-bite” freehub body. With 6 pawl drivers (alternating in sets) and high-quality steel bearings. Holding all of this together is a precisely machined 7075 aluminum alloy shell. The hubs are easily serviceable, with anyone being able to switch out driver bodies without specialty tools.
