R&D; Commitment to Excellence

Research and development underpins all our technology and product evolution. The search for the ultimate layup, the best materials, refined handling characteristics, improved durability….. all start with an idea. This idea however needs to be thoroughly tested to validate it. This is where sound R&D comes to the front with lab testing, analysis, field testing [...]

Features & Function; The Unspoken Details

Good design and innovation are often the things you don’t notice, because it works. Tubeless tyres that inflate easily, rims that take abuse for seasons on end, wheels that stay true and without nipple failures, these are just a few. These are invisible details in design, technology, manufacturing processes and material science that are incorporated [...]

Form Follows Performance

5 heads are better than 1. We design what we want to ride, and our designs follow the form of performance. Designers are dreamers, engineers are data driven, riders offer unique insight and feedback, mechanics are practical and customers are the true test. This is the perfect crossover of skills and insight that make up [...]

Not is all Equal; Material Science & QC

Just like baking a cake, composites can have vastly different results just by changing the recipe or ingredients. Our strict process control, molding technology and material science all play a huge part in ensuring high compaction, low void, uniform fiber orientation and part consistency. Bouwmeester rims use a complex laminate using optimized modulas fibers and [...]

Carbon is no Black Magic

Carbon is no black magic. It is a highly refined and controlled manufacturing process with huge design potential for innovative products. It does require significant intellectual property and strict process and quality control to deliver world class products. Our experience in composites spans nearly a decade and with this knowledge we have the ability to [...]
