FSE300 » At about $1000 per set, these might be some of the best wheels on the planet.

Over the past 5-10 years, there has been a lot of homogenizing of the marketplace. So when I see something truly new, I tend to get excited. Today we're looking at rims by FSE, which are made by an entirely different process from most carbon wheels in the industry. It's made by a filament-winding process. That's right in the name: FSE stands for Filament Spin Evolution. Instead of being laid up in a mold with individual sheets of carbon, FSE rims are wound from a spool of tensioned carbon thread, in a continuous fashion, reducing the number of manual processes in the creation and resulting in a more uniform construction.
