When the braiding process is done, the rim is laid into a mould. Under pressure and heat, the resin is pumped into the rim. The construction of the mould guarantees an even distribution and proper curing of the materials.
Now, the rim heads into the finishing process. The core is removed first, which also saves weight. After, the spoke and rim holes are drilled automatically by a robot.
The last step is painting. Here, we only use a clear coat so that the braided structure can really shine. This is fitting, as ‘Flechtwerk’ is the German word for braided goods. After a final quality control, the rim is ready to be laced up.
