  • Bright polished finish on any rim

    We are pleased to finally be able to introduce our polished rims, after various in house attempts at stripping and buffing over the last year we have left it to the professionals and all our rims can now be ordered in a professional bright shine or sateen finish.

    Our polished NoTubes ZTR Flows are shown off here on a pair of Mango Chris Kings. Polishing adds £39 to the price of a wheelset.  These instock mango Chris Kings with polished flows are £712.

    The quickest way to get the new polished finish in use and on the trails was to buff up Jamies mountain bike wheels, hence the used hub and tyres. We've restickered the NoTubes ZTR Arch, unfortunately we won't be able to resticker all rims but most NoTubes decals are available.

    The polish may affect the braking surface on road rims with a machined brake track but this should not adversely effect performance.


    Sateen

    Sateen finish

    Sateen is a brushed finish and looks similar as if it were a bare aluminium with visible stroke marks, it gives a more industrial or raw finish on your wheelset.


    The professional finishes should last some time but will need occasional polishing.
