The difference between Constructor and assembler :
Builder or assembler? Two similar words, but the differences and substance between the two words are huge.
In Italy and in Europe there are many good wheel assemblers. You buy the X hub, assemble it together with the Y rim and Z spokes and make a wheel. Everything OK. We are sure?
The vision of RaceFactory™ is very different. The cycle world is vast, and most of the mass-market components (even considered top level, at more than esoteric prices) are manufactured to go "quite" well in a multitude of configurations.
An example? The geometries of the majority of hubs on the market are designed to go well with alloy rims and are not suitable for giving the maximum on composite rims. But the big differences don't stop there.
At RaceFactory™ we think totally differently. The product must be designed in unison, and must function as a whole, to give the maximum to the user.
That's why we design our rims for our hubs, and vice versa. The heights of the flanges, their distance, the intersections of the spokes are engineered to give the maximum with the section and laminations of our composites and vice versa.
The reference smoothness of RaceFactory™ hubs, unknown to the vast majority of products on the market, is only obtained with a very deep knowledge of the CNC process and mechanics in general. Latest generation machines and engineering are not enough.
All this requires know-how, research, time and a lot of costs. But the result really makes the difference, ours and we believe your satisfaction too. Ask any customer or athlete who uses our wheel sets, and you'll get the idea.
After all, companies are made up of people and their passion.
