Cube Action Team Reveals 2019 Stereo Team Bike
They are brushed with colorless anodizing = silver. I agree it is hard to tell with the pictures taken in the bright sunlight.

Review: Newmen Evolution A.30 Wheels
@wowbagger: the 157mm SP hub is in the works. We do offer the 32h J-Bend hub with 157mm spacing and it is available right now.

First Look: Newmen Components' New Wheels Have Spokes Made of String
the point is that the spokes get lenghtened by 8mm when they get tensioned while building the wheel. Under riding situations the forces of the spokes in a regular wheel get distributed so unevenly that under extreme breaking for example certain spokes lose almost all of their tension when they were tensioned to 1200N. With the fibre spokes the forces are distributed much more evenly onto the different spoke holes, since there would have to be much more movement in the wheel before a spoke loses as much tension as a steel spoke does - thus the fibre spokes last much longer on our drum teststand than any other wheel we have tested so far (the rims for example dont crack at the nipple hole). The stiffness of the wheel is basically the same though.

@SuperstarComponents: sorry but if you don't even know that spokes in every regular wheel behave like this under high braking forces and slightly less so under acceleration and impact forces you have probably not fatigue tested any wheel yourself properly yet and looked at what is happening with the wheel. That the rim holds up so much longer at the spoke holes than the rim of any other wheel we have tested on our drum teststand yet, just underlines our point. The forces in the wheel are distributed much more evenly onto all of the fibre spokes under stress instead of having the forces peak on certain spokes in the wheel under certain riding situations. I can also assure you that every wheel we have tested has been properly tensioned by my very self but considering your aggressiveness I am not sure if you are even trying to have a proper discussion.

@MikeBikerson: Maybe you spoke too soon and at a claimed msrp of 1200€ for a 1230g trail wheelset there might be a string of hope some people can afford one?

he is actually right tho - the spokes are woven from vectran fibre yarn by PiRope in Germany

We found that 36 teeth in our star ratchet strike a nice balance between engagement angle and noise. Pawls weren't really an option for the level of durability we are aiming for. Also personally I find 36t plenty for technical climbing while I do agree that 18 can feel like a compromise after you have used a hub with more engagement points.

it's just a way of fixing the "problem" of wheels with normal hubs tending to be really fiddly to fit into torque cap forks

no rider weight limit, no usage limitations is all I can tell you ;)

the rim it was compared to was a bit heavier even
