ENGINEERING A BETTER WHEEL
Giant WheelSystems are the result of a holistic effort to create the best-performing wheels for every rider in all types of conditions. The design philosophy is called System Engineered Performance. It’s an evolution in wheel design and a departure from conventional thinking.
Bicycle wheels have traditionally been viewed as an assembly of individual parts. Rims, hubs, spokes and other small parts were produced individually and then assembled to form a wheel. That was the old way of thinking. To create Giant WheelSystems, engineers studied the ways the individual parts of a wheel affect each other. This research pushed Giant to develop wheel components that work together to deliver best-in-class performance. Every rim, spoke and hub has been designed to function as a system to improve overall performance.
Each individual wheel component complements the others to form an integrated system.
Each WheelSystem is precisely designed, engineered and handbuilt to produce best-in-class performance for weight, stiffness, aerodynamics, comfort and control in its designated category.
Every WheelSystem is purpose-built to address key performance factors: weight, stiffness, aerodynamics, comfort and control—-all to produce a better ride quality.
