Warranty Policies: Prowheelbuilder i.e. PWB custom built wheels come with a 1 year warranty from the date of purchase. See details below:
A. SPOKES: PWB will replace all broken spokes regardless of the cause.
B. LABOR: PWB will cover all wheel related labor i.e. wheel re builds and truing.
C. NON MANUFATURER WARRANTIES: PWB will replace any non manufacturer warrantied rim or hub at 25% off the current retail.
D. MANUFACTURER WARRANTY: PWB will facilitate the manufacturer's warranty, if the manufacturer deems the product warrantable. Manufacturer's warranty is only good as long as the manufacturer is in business.
E. SHIPPING: The customer is responsible for shipping to and from PWB.
Shipping Time Policy: Stock products will ship within 7 working days of order, based on availability. Wheel orders should ship within 15 business days of your order date. This date is independent of the actual shipping time. If there is a problem such as back ordered product / unavailable we will do our best to contact you as soon as possible.
Domestic Shipping Policies: Prowheelbuilder is not responsible for damage that may occur during shipping. However we will be happy to help resolve these matters through the package handler. All packages are insured thru the package handler by Prowheelbuilder. We require a signature for all packages. If you request no signature, Prowheelbuilder takes no responsibility for any stolen product.
International Shipping Policies: Duties and Taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser. Prowheelbuilder will not alter the customs value.
Return Policy: If you are not completely satisfied with our product you may exchange it for any product we sell within 7 days of receiving your purchase (there will be no refund issued for a difference if a lesser item is purchased). Please note that if the exchange is for a component of one of our hand built wheels there may be a 10% fee associated with the exchange. Product must be in new condition and in the original packaging (spokes do not qualify for this return policy). Buyer is responsible for shipping back to seller.
Order Modification Policy: If you are exchanging your product for a different color there may be a 10% order modification fee.
Refund Policy: Once an order has been placed, no Refunds or Cancellations are allowed. You may alter an order with in 24 hours, providing the order has not been built. If a cancellation must happen a 15% restocking fee will be charged. For any item(s) that is returned or declined a 15% restocking fee will be charged along with the shipping / handling fees.
DetailsThe Falkor 36D is a CFD optimized rim designed around road disc brake bikes and meant for road racing or everyday road riding. The Falkor 36D rim is the result of a new design process we call Weighted Performance Matrix (WPM). What this means is that we consider all aspects of a rim during the design phase, things like the bike it will be on, the terrain it will be used on, the hubs it will be built with, typical head and cross winds, tire sizes, and the list goes on. In the end we end up with a matrix with over 20 parameters and use this to fine tune aspects of the rim so that the performance is optimized for the specific application. We truly let the science drive the design rather than the marketing department (which we don't have by the way.) Every aspect of the Falkor rims from the rim profile to the carbon layup schedule to the spoke exit angle is designed using this philosophy. Key characteristics that make the Falkor 36D stand out are it's width and asymmetric offset. During CFD modeling we centered aerodynamic studies on 25mm (actual width) tires, so if you are looking for the fasted road rim/tire combo that is what we recommend. The inner width of 20mm and the outer width of 27.7mm create a seamless tire to rim transition at 25mm which is key to maintaining laminar airflow around the leading and trailing edge of the rim. Tire sizes from 23-30mm work just fine as well (some 23mm wide tires measure 25mm wide on the Falkor 36D and are optimal.) Designing an aerodynamic rim with an offset spoke bed is a real challenge, and you won't find many other rims like this out there. However, it's impossible to deny the benefits of using an asymmetric rim on today's disc brake bikes so this is a challenge we took head on. You'll notice the offset is slightly less than many of our other rims and that's because 2.0mm is the maximum offset we could make before the wheel saw differential torque moments (one side is pulled more by crosswinds than the other which can make it unnerving to ride.) It's still enough offset to boost the low-side spoke tension by 13-15% and improve the net bracing angles for a stiffer wheel. The same rim can be used on the front or back by flipping it around.
