The Maker AR: A high performance 35mm or 50mm customised carbon wheelset guaranteed for life and designed for the modern generation of disc brake equipped bikes which are capable both on- and off-road.
This is the most versatile wheel we build and is equally at home on a go-fast road bike as an Open UP or similar adventure bike. The Maker AR allows you to explore the countryside around you wether on tarmac or off the beaten path and removes the limits of traditional road wheelsets.
The Maker AR’s 23mm bead-width allows you to install any tyre from 25mm to 45mm. It is tubeless-ready to work with the latest generation of tubeless-road tyres and has been painstakingly designed to be as easy as possible to install these often tight-fitting tyres. Matched to the tubeless design is a hooked bead which allows the use of non-tubeless tyres and to provide uncompromised safety.
Light Weight Without Compromise
Versatility doesn’t have to come at the cost of weight. We’ve engineered the Maker AR to have class-beating light weight to retain that fun, responsive feeling that a great pair of wheels provides without compromising on the wheelsets ability to attack rough gravel sections with confidence.
Disc Brake Specific
Disc brakes are nothing new to us at Wheelworks: While the rest of the industry tries to catch up to this ‘latest trend’ our staff bikes have been using discs for years. The Maker AR is the latest addition to the Maker family and sports a wide profile to match the current crop of disc-road frames with ample tyre clearance. By combining the advantages in stopping power from discs, with the wind cheating profile of the Maker rim, the Maker AR Carbon Disk is a true neoclassic of carbon wheels
