- What happened to ‘MAG’ wheels
Posted 6 months ago
Optimised braking force distribution leaves you in control of your experience.
The unique carbon blades give complete control back to the rider, providing confidence in every turn.
The sculpted blades that form the SPENGLE Carbon Monocoque wheel help minimise turbulence, increasing stability at high speeds. The revolutionary carbon elbow reduces the effect of trail shock before it reaches the rider, helping keep your ride in focus.

The original Mongoose wheels were cast magnesium which is where the name (and the weight) comes from.
Later versions were plastic. Much lighter but a bit wavy. This gave rise to the urban myth that you could make them perfectly straight if only you could somehow get them into your mother’s freezer overnight.Posted 6 months agosanernameSubscriber
Never told this story, but why not… My mum died when I was 16 and for my 18th birthday i got a bit of money from her will. I bought myself a Ti Merlin frame with one of the first Judy forks, some Paul’s mechs and Spinergy wheels. It was undeniably beautiful, but everything other than the frame was utter rubbish.Posted 6 months ago
