The well-known Italian brand, Gipiemme wheels, now available in South Africa, is proving popular among local cyclists, with a strong demand for the product.
The wheels became available in South Africa from mid-year following an agreement between the European producers and Positive Sports Solutions.
The SA company is the sole distributor of Gipiemme wheels in the country, continuing its drive to create attractive options for local consumers.
“Positive Sports Solutions is trying to make cycling affordable to the public again,” said a company spokesman.
“In terms of the Gipiemme wheels, you are getting one of the highest quality carbon wheels at an affordable price.”
He added that there had been a strong response from the public to the product.
“With Gipiemme’s wide range of road, mountain-bike, track and time-trial disc wheels, it makes it easy to cater for everybody’s needs,” he said.
“Our stock has arrived and anything not in our range at the moment can be ordered separately and delivered within seven to 14 days, depending on the availability at Gipiemme in Italy.”
He said that among the most popular models in the Gipiemme road range were the C32, C47 and the Manta Disc wheel. The disc wheel can be used by triathletes, time-trialers and track riders.
The most popular mountain bike wheel was the T289ER carbon.
