If you have a specific technical query that is not covered here, call out technical support line on +44 (0) 1249 446438
Will my Dymag wheels fitted to my current bike fit my new bike with new spacers or other modifications?
All of our wheels are manufactured to specific applications to fit that make, model, and year of bike, it is unlikely that fitments will be interchangeable. Hub swaps are available direct from the factory and are quoted on a case by case basis.
What sprockets fit Dymag wheels?
All Dymag wheels are supplied with a Dymag standard sprocket fitment and you can purchase additional sprockets or spares through us directly or through a distributor.
What Colours can I have my Dymag wheels?
Matt black, gloss black, gloss white, gold, and gunmetal are free colours available but other colours are available subject to a surcharge and we recommend using RAL numbers to pick your colour. Please note we cannot paint our carbon fibre wheels.
What warranty do I get with my new Dymag wheels?
One full year from receipt of purchase of all labour, parts, and manufacture. This information is also included in your wheel care booklet included with every wheel we manufacture
Can my wheels be refurbished?
Yes, we offer a full refurbishment service for all our wheels; please contact us for more information and for a custom quote (See wheel refurbishment terms below)
Can I straighten my Dymag wheels?
No, we do not recommend straightening wheels because this can lead to work hardening of the material therefore affecting the fatigue life of the wheel
Can I modify my Dymag wheels or hubs?
No, any alterations or machining of the hubs or wheels can affect the quality or safety of your Dymag product and voids your warranty. We do not recommend any major modifications by anyone other than our trained manufacturing team.
Can I get spares or replacement parts for my Dymag wheels?
Yes! Small spares are listed on our website and are also available through your Dymag distributor, however larger repair jobs are required to be carried out by the Dymag wheels team and are classed as a "refurbishment".
I have a custom bike project or a modified bike that differs from the OEM specifications; can I still use Dymag wheels?
Yes! Get in touch with a distributor or us directly to enquire about getting a custom drawing done for your wheels.
Can I have my carbon wheels painted?
We do not provide a carbon fibre painting service as we do not use lacquer on our wheels. However if you wish to have your Dymag carbon fibre wheels painted then there are independent specialists who may be able to help.
Are Dymag carbon fibre wheels safe to use on the road?
YES! All our wheels are tested to international wheel standards JWL, DOT and BS AU 50 for both race and road worldwide.
What is the difference between aluminium, magnesium, and carbon wheels?
There are lots of difference in relation to performance, read our technology section here to learn more.
How long do Dymag carbon wheels last?
Carbon fibre has an excellent fatigue life which means that over time it degrades more slowly than metallic wheels. This means that it should out last alternative materials by a large margin, and it is also not susceptible to corrosion like magnesium wheels.
How do you manufacture Dymag carbon wheels?
We use a press moulded technique which involves applying the resin to the carbon fibre in a mould, and then applying heat and pressure to create the wheel shape. The wheels are then post cured and trimmed before the specific bike model hubs are bonded in. Our hubs are bonded in with a structural aerospace grade adhesive and then move onto final assembly. Check out our technology pages here to learn more.
How much lighter are Dymag carbon wheels over O.E.M wheels?
This is variable, but as much as 40%! Check out our technology pages here to learn more and see the improvements carbon fibre wheels can make.
Why are Carbon Fibre wheels so much more expensive?
Carbon fibre is an expensive material and manufacturing carbon fibre wheels is a low volume and high skill task. All our carbon fibre wheels are made to order by a team with over 30 years’ experience of manufacturing carbon fibre wheels.
