Question the Norm

Our design team always asks the question ‘why?’ This is a very important moment of curiosity. As once you question the norm you can start to break free and push the design boundaries. This is our approach to product design and the evolution of a product. Our rims are unique in the market and offer [...]


Lessons Learnt; Rider Feedback & Product Evolution

From the dusty hot blown trails of Chile, to the loaming forests of Derby Tasmania, our riders have been there. Lessons learned with testing are often some of the most valuable. You can test, analyze, engineer and design in the lab till the sun sets and stars come out; but time on dirt is often [...]


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 [...]


The Ride

Nimble, smooth and precise.  Wheels have the ability to change your whole experience on the bike; performance, comfort and ability. Bouwmeester carbon wheels have this like no other wheel, our race wheels make every day riding better. Smooth - Tuned dampening through a refined carbon layup to offer radial compliance and wheel tracking through the [...]


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 [...]
