Lyne Components launches alloy wheelset range

Lyne Components is known for their dropper posts and MTB components that won’t break the bank. They have now expanded their product range to include performance alloy wheelsets.

Our main aim when developing our new wheelsets was to find the right balance between weight, width and durability for each wheelset and their intended use. The demands of modern mountain bikers are far higher than before due to the level at which riders are pushing their equipment and the technicality of race courses and trails. Riders are going faster, riding longer and pushing their limits and we wanted to offer wheels that could meet these demands and encourage confidence.

Pulse 25 Wheelset

The Pulse 25 Wheelset strikes the right balance between weight width and durability to improve the ride of your XC/Marathon bike.

 

Weigth vs Width


SPECS.jpg

 

Efficiency is key when referring to XC/Marathon wheels, this is achieved by keeping weight down and distributing mass as close to the centre of the wheel as possible. Wide rims have shown to have multiple benefits including increased traction and tyre stability but are often heavier or suffer durability issues. The challenge is to create a balance between weight and width that doesn't compromise durability. We have opted to use a 25mm internal width for the Pulse 25 wheelset as it creates a stable platform for tyres up to 2,25” while still being lightweight and durable. The overall weight of 1580g ensures good acceleration and efficiency.

AMP 30 Wheelset

The AMP 30 wheelset has just the right numbers to improve your ride. A durable package that was designed with weight in mind results in a stable yet playful trail wheelset.

 

Increase Tyre Stability & Traction


SPECS-2.jpg

 

Unstable tyres are a thing of the past. The wider footprint of the AMP 30 wheelset sets a stable base for your tyres. This helps combat lateral forces that would typically cause tyre roll and burping. Predictability is key when pushing tyres to their limits and having a stable predictable wheelset makes all the difference.

Spoke and Hubs

LYNE-wheels-10.jpg


Our wheels use Triple Butted Pillar PSR TB2016 spokes which are strong and lightweight. Pillar's PSR technology allows spokes to be up to 30% lighter without compromising strength. We have paired these with alloy double square nipples to ensure weight is kept to a minimum.

 

Lyne JB01 hubs are made by Chosen and are lightweight, serviceable and reliable. The sealed cartridge bearing design means bearings are protected from the elements and are easily replaced when worn. JB01 Hubs are available in boost and non-boost options with replaceable end caps to convert between Thru-Axle and QR.

They missed one crucial thing in the promo videos - people want to hear what the hub sounds like :)

splat, Jan 24 2018 08:02

They look good and seem like good value for money.

 

Any word on a rider weight limit ?

 

If the hubs are available separately, are the rims also going to be available for purchase?

I asked them that same question yesterday. Answer was a preliminary no for now.

Thermophage, Jan 24 2018 08:25

I just ask WHY the alloy nipples!? :(

splat, Jan 24 2018 08:50

Interesting that the Pulse is 29'er only, but the Amp comes in both sizes.

 

Glad to see that they are both have Boost spacing as an option

Cant be many wheels around that come in under 1600g and cost less that R5,5k - will be interesting to see what the feedback is from people who ride them.

 

Certainly seems like incredible bang for buck! And LYNE also make those funky bottle caps heads sets :)

Hi Splat

 

Rider weight limits are as follows:

 

Pulse 25: Under 90kg

AMP 30: Under 120kg

 

We will be offering rim options soon, but not right away.

 

Cheers

Nice one!

 

So not as in your face as Hope, but louder than Shimano...

I was also wondering about the weight limit on the AMP but never mind my fatass will break these.  :blush:

If that Pulse 25 rims came in 32 hole options, I'd be all over it - if the rims were available loose. It would be perfect for an upcoming wheelbuild I have to do. Old school American Classic hubs stripped out of unused 26er wheels with Boost conversion axles sourced from EVOBikes, probably DT Swiss Revolution spokes... and the jury is still out on the rims. These would have been ideal, but would have had to be 32 hole to match the hubs. The AMP30 is also nice, but probably a tiny bit too heavy for me. Granted, I don't know what any of these rims weigh.

 

Lyne, what are your rim weights?

I must be honest, I have no idea what you are asking here...

It's one of the "Shreddit" boxes to tick. Similar to a scandi-flick, it doesn't make you faster, just makes you look fast (because, to be fair, you have to be hauling ass to make them look good).

aha, you learn something new everyday.

I am in the market for a hoop. Hope Lyne brings them soon.

Thats a very decent rim weight!

MTBeer, Jan 24 2018 02:07

why would that destroy your spokes?

El Guapo, Jan 24 2018 09:23

Alloy nipples is a fail for me. Down at the coast that’s normally the first things that goes. Brass all the way!

Would be interested in that rim if they end up being sold separately.

TheJ, Jan 24 2018 10:31

Don't think Lyne was quite expecting the demand for loose rims...

Still rate they should offer the Pulse in 32h as well, otherwise its pretty useless on the "loose rim" market with 28 holes.
