Colored carbon fiber bike wheels

Hypertex and wheel manufacturer Parcours have manufactured bicycle wheels featuring gold-colored carbon fiber.

The wheels are made with Hypetex’s Zlatan uni-directional material and are lighter than the traditional painted alternative, the company said. The material features water-based eco-resins and can be molded using a sustainable curing process, Hypetex said.

Only 10 sets of the limited edition wheels will be available, with prices ranging from £1,799 to £2,499.

“Colored carbon fibre has endless possibilities with applications in almost every sector,” said Marc Cohen, Hypetex CEO.
