PRESS RELEASE: Logos Components




Lōgōs Components is expanding its award-winning Omnium Collection of performance wheels to include XC and All-Mountain | Enduro models. Using the same open standard design philosophy and non-proprietary dual-spring star ratchet architecture as their Aéras aero road, Epoché Road | CX | Gravel, Atara Gravel | Adventure, and Eudae Trail offerings, each is engineered to deliver the transformative responsiveness of a boutique race-day wheel, but in an affordable package that prioritizes lifetime reliability and serviceability.

Backed by Lōgōs’ lifetime warranty, lifetime incident protection, and US-based support team and warehouse for same/next-day shipment of service parts, they are available for $1299 via www.logoscomponents.com or your favorite local shop (more on this below).

• 1395g with 130kg max system weight

Key benefits include:
• Asymmetric 37W|31IW|24.5D profile
• 1765g with 130kg max system weight
• Non-proprietary arché OS dual-spring star ratchet hub architecture

Design Philosophy

Lōgōs utilizes proven open standards, non-proprietary parts, and precision manufacturing to deliver the transformative responsiveness of a boutique race-day wheel, but in an affordable package that prioritizes lifetime reliability and serviceability.

Arche OS hub boost Logos Components


At the heart of every Lōgōs wheel is the arché OS hubset. Based on the original star ratchet architecture patented by Hügi in the 90s and later popularized by DT Swiss, the dual-spring design offers legendary reliability along with tool-free serviceability and adaptability via readily-available endcaps, freehubs, and ratchets.

Logos Components g da carbon wheelset

A refined mixed-modulus rim layup with individual nipple seat reinforcement and offset angle drilling puts the right carbon in the right places, while the same state-of-the-art process used to achieve a stunning raw matte carbon finish straight from the mold also eliminates excess resin, voids, and the need for fillers or clearcoat.


Standard counts of Pillar Wing spokes deliver extended fatigue life and an aero benefit at a low weight, with precision assembly and a universal-length spare further ensuring a durable build that’s easy to service. These are paired with external brass nipples to avoid the seizing, splitting, and failing common with aluminum nipples as well as the complexity of accessing hidden ones for routine maintenance.



Local Shop Program

Lōgōs is available through a growing network of local shops. If you would like to support your local shop by directing your purchase through them, or you are a shop employee interested in learning more, simply reach out to Lōgōs with your name, shop info, and the products you’re interested in and their team will facilitate for you.



About Lōgōs

Lōgōs was created by some of the people behind Thesis Bike, The Gravel Ride Podcast, and The Ridership online community to make high-performance components more accessible through a commitment to proven open standards, non-proprietary parts, and lifetime rider support. Their name reflects the reasoned discourse and principled approach that underpins their product and support philosophies while providing a tongue-in-cheek commentary on status symbol marketing and a reminder that riding bikes is about having fun.

 Literally my first thought too.

"uh, thats the half life logo".

Double checks image search.

Yep, almost identical. Only difference is a rounding on the top, and bottom right ends. Curious how that is considered different "enough".

 Testing carried out at the infamous Black Mesa test facility, hand laid by Gordan Freeman

 Thesis was notorious for taking a $500 open mold Carbonda frame from China and charging top dollar for what is essentially just a paint job. The owner, Randall Jacobs, is a supply chain hack that whitelabels cheap knockoffs and passes it off as engineering. Do your research before you buy anything from them.

 Randall here. Please feel welcome to reach out to us directly if there’s something Thesis or I can help resolve for you.

With Thesis, we’ve been transparent about starting with an open mold frame, which we modified to address areas where we saw opportunity to improve utility and durability. We also bring frames into our facility raw so we can do our own QC, finish work, and paint to ensure they’re up to our standards before having a single professional mechanic assemble each into a custom-spec bike for a superior build relative to cheaper assembly-line production.

This model, together with our 1-on-1 consults, has enabled us to offer high-quality builds, dialed to each rider’s unique fit via custom-sized cockpits and proportional crank lengths, fitness via custom gearing, and terrain via wheel//tire packages and optional dropper posts, at a competitive price point. We’ve built a community along with a company on our commitment to supporting riders, regardless of whether they ride our products.

Anyone interested in learning more about our approach might enjoy this interview with Russ Roca over at PathLessPedaled (www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI6bRB9jaXY), or my work with The Gravel Ride Podcast (thegravelride.bike/size/5/?search=randall). And if anyone has questions, ideas, or feedback about what we do or how we do it, please feel encouraged to send them our way.

 Pretty cool. What is the hub POE with the star ratchet? Or is it literally a DT star ratchet. So options are 18/36/54 I think?

 36T comes with the XC wheelset. They look identical to the DT's but not 100% sure.

 ztto hub and ali carbon rim?))

 Not quite, though there’s nothing proprietary about our hubs (a core value of the brand).

Our manufacturing partner for Logos is the same one we collaborated with on Thesis’ rims starting in 2017. Thesis wheels incorporated DT350 hubs due to their bombproof design, and when that Hugi-designed architecture came off patent, we worked with that same partner on the acquisition of a hub-maker to bring rim and hub manufacturing, along with wheel system co-development, assembly, and packaging, under a single roof with a hub based on the lighter dual-spring DT240 (with bearings from Enduro).

 Nice, clean and simple wheels. I dig it.

 23 spokes? Really ? I wonder how the spokes are distributed to have a even tension and true wheel.
  • 15 0
 Wing 23 is the model of spoke used. Both wheel models use 28h hubs and spokes

 @jackrogers21: Thanks! Somehow had missed that.

 @EnduroManiac: I definitely read it as 20 and 23 spoke as well. Glad @jackrogers21 cleared it up
