Schmolke SL TLO 45 on Industry Nine Hubs
Schmolke might be a brand most associated with the weight conscious obsessed among us, but if you’re riding a carbon bar on your road bike, you may have Stefan Schmolke to thank for that. Supposedly the first to build a carbon road handlebar, Schmolke has usually been ahead of the times when it comes to carbon fiber wizardry.
Following in the footsteps of other Schmolke products, the rims are made in Germany and feature an improved resin that should make the rims more heat resistant. The claimed heat resistance (Tg) number of the rims is now listed at 230ºc – which is the glass transition point or where the resin would begin to break down. The actual Tg numbers of most rims are hard to find, but 446ºf is fairly high.
