SUPERLACE™ is a custom solution for the recurring problem of loosening and breaking spokes. The solution can be modified depending upon the type of application, size of bike/engine, and your skill level and needs. The process involves analyzing and reconfiguring your OEM rim, spokes, nipples and hub. We essentially blueprint your wheel with optimal selected components and lace patterns transforming it into a rugged wheel that works as good as it looks and looks as good as it works.
After studying the problem of broken spokes, Woody discovered that it would be possible to strengthen the structure of the wheel by altering the lace pattern so that each spoke was routed as closely as possible to a 90 degree angle between the hub and rim. This allows the most direct transfer of energy through the spoke to the hub and rim. Since this method requires drilling the rim holes to point in a new direction, Woody decided to add to the strength factor by drilling and countersinking the rim to allow for oversized spokes and nipples. Called SUPERSIZING, this process spreads the workload over a larger surface area under the nipple. The net result is the ability to torque the spokes tighter than possible with OEM spokes and nipples making a stronger, more durable wheel.
Combine the oversize spokes and nipples with the re-angled lace pattern, and we have a wheel that is guaranteed for a full year against spoke breakage or loosening.
