Classic Beauty with Modern Dynamic Performance and Safety Combined
Supplied complete and ready to install, the unique and proven Kineo system enables the "Classic Spoked Look" to be truly available for your bike... but with all the dynamic handling and safety benefits provided by the most modern tubeless tyres. They are also fully compatible with tubed-type off road tyres too.
Produced from 7000 grade Aluminium using a new and unique process, the one-piece - and completely airtight - Kineo rim is precisely CNC machined, carefully coated in its durable finish and then finally has its Aluminium valve inserted.
5 Rim Colours available (all Powder Coated - except Silver, see below)
- Black Glossy, Black Matt, White Matt, Anthracite Matt (Dark Grey)
- Silver Glossy/Shine (polished Aluminium with clear protective coating)
- Special rim colours are also available with a supplementary charge - please contact HPS with your request for a quote
To provide optimal distribution of the material's grain - for the maximum strength essential at the heart of the wheel - the 7000 Aluminium alloy Kineo hub blank is initially forged to a shape similar to the final finished item. After precision CNC machining it is then coated with its attractive, corrosion resistant anodised finish. Bearings are protected by supplementary external oil seals and external spacers are CNC machined and coated with hard anodised finish.
5 Standard Hub colours available (all anodised)
- Black Glossy, Black Matt, Silver Matt, Shine silver (as per rim),
- 6 Special hub colours available for a supplementary charge
Titanium (darker "Bluey" Grey), Gold, Orange, Red, Blue and Green
The double swaged 5/4mm spokes are produced by turning from a drawn high-resistance bar and galvanised for corrosion resistance. The 28 front and 32 rear spokes are perfectly rectilinear and tensioned at the hub with a normal Hexagonal Allen key/wrench. If ever required, individual spokes are easily accessible for replacement without disassembling the wheel or even removing the tyre.
Spoke Colours available
- Silver is standard colour
- Alternating Silver & Black
The Light Alloy Spoke end design is one of the most significant innovations within the Kineo wheel. The ends are inserted externally on the rim in a transverse orientation (i.e., parallel to the wheel axis) and require no holes through the rim at all for absolutely guaranteed tyre sealing integrity.
8 Spoke end colours available (all anodised)
- Black, Titanium (darker "Bluey" Grey), Silver, Gold, Orange, Red, Blue and Green
The Kineo hub and bespoke brake disc carrier system (one or two for the front wheel and a single carrier for the rear) enables straightforward installation the original stock/OE (or OE compatible aftermarket) brake discs with no modifications required and ABS sensors are also installed as originally designed. Brake disc carrier components are supplied in a Black anodised finish.
For some applications, special specific bolts, nuts and washers are supplied for standard/OE braking discs installation.
CUSH DRIVE & SPROCKET CARRIER
Kineo wheels are supplied with a specific 8-pin Cush Drive which is completely external to the rear wheel hub. This feature is entirely independent of the wheel and has its own a double-row bearing to support the radial load induced by the chain to supplement the wheel's two integral bearings. Cush Drive and Sprocket Carrier components are supplied in a Black anodised finish.
