The most lightweight and responsive downhill racing wheel available, 2 more World Cup wins in 2014
We’re not usually ones to boast, but Deemax Ultimate holds an iconic place in the history of downhill mountain biking.
Ridden by the pros
Developed with and used by some of the fastest racers on the world cup circuit, Deemax Ultimate is among the lightest downhill wheelsets, taking Sam Hill to the top step of the podium twice during the 2014 season.
Featuring the distinctive yellow paint, the alloy rim has been developed using our patented ISM weight-reduction technology. This technology creates a central line of standard alloy thickness along the rim. This means the weight of the rest of the rim can be reduced to help acceleration and handling, while it stays just as strong – a key element in downhill.
Steel spokes for big hits
The spokes are steel made, double-butted and bladed, with 28 in the front and 32 in the rear to cope with the huge hits that are part of racing the clock downhill. And the ITS 4 freewheel system, with 4 poles and only 7.5° between engaged positions, reduces the time out of a corner to get back up to maximum speed.
Deemax Ultimate is compatible with multiple axle standards and comes delivered with 20mm front (9mm and 15mm adaptors are optional but common to other wheels in our line up) and the downhill specific rear hub has a 150mm spacing with adapters to convert it to 157mm delivered in the box. The Yellow Deemax is available in 26” and 27.5”.
