Race Face is company of mountain bikers, so when they set out to design a new product, their goal is simple. To make a product they would want to ride. It is with this philosophy in mind that they proudly introduce the Turbine-R wheelset. The Turbine-R wheel is tested and proven to meet the needs of today’s riders who put their components through more abuse than ever before. It is wheelset created to provide the optimal balance of durability, stiffness, serviceability, engagement, weight, and cost.
The asymmetric rim design of Turbine R shifts the nipple bed resulting in more balanced spoke tension and a wheel with improved strength, durability and longevity. Race Face chose to off-set the nipple bed by 4.5mm which, when paired with the new Vault hubs, gives an equally balanced spoke tension between driveside and non-driveside spokes on the front wheel and a 50% improvement in tension balance on the rear wheel.
The Vault hub is the first Race Face branded Hub built from the ground up. The engineering team set out to design the best hub on the market, one that would stand up to the performance and quality the Race Face brand is known for. The over-sized hub shell provides opportunity for performance gains: increased rear drive torsional stiffness by up to 20%, and increased lateral stiffness. Perfecting engagement was a priority at the outset of the Vault hub design. The hub features a 60 tooth drive ring with six pawls which have two teeth per pawl. There are two sets of three pawls offset from each other resulting in 3 degree engagement for almost instant power transfer. All pawls feature low-drag springs to ensure quick and positive) engagement while retaining low coast drag. Proven 6902 bearings were selected due to their large ball diameter and durability. Wide bearing placement was designed to decrease load on the bearings improving lifespan. Protecting internals from the elements is key to hub longevity. To ensure product durability and less service over time, Race Face designed low-drag labyrinth seals specifically for the Vault hubs.
