They are made of lexan. It's the same stuff they make those Nalgene (practically) unbreakable water bottles out of. VERYYYYYY strong and hard stuff, and light.

I would 100% trust those wheels to hold up well on a bike. The only concern I would have is sharp impacts. The only way to easily break that stuff it is a very pointed and hard impact (i.e. go at it with a big icepick or something). Not sure if that's really a concern when riding anyways, so I think they'd work great, and be VERY light.

I don't know, they could be polycarbonate too. Thats what they make lightweight glasses lenses out of made and designed not to chip, break or shatter. They are using poly for many materials for other things like race windshields, and lots of others.

Its not plexi.....

Its a clear polycarbonate and they are actually Department of Transportation approved!!! There are plenty of people that have tried to bust these wheels and they haven't. They are expensive, about 6-10k for a set depending if you order them from Europe or have them made here in the U.S.

Watch for completely clear wheels in the future as well, even the hoops will be clear!

I use lexan with a led light source to color the plastic. I wonder if you could do it with these rims... The lexan I use is a bit grey in color so I wonder what property differences the wheels have (assuming they are lexan).

so slick!
