Nimble CROSSWIND in USA Olympic paint -- Click to enlargeWho is Nimble?
Nimble designs, manufactures, and sells high performance bicycle wheels. We make our own composite materials, and fabricate our own specialty metals.  We manufacture our own products.  We sell direct to riders worldwide - to buy just call or e-mail. We manufacture in Austin, Texas USA.

The Nimble CROSSWIND - click for an enlarged imageCROSSWIND
is pure performance. Materials, process technology, design, and testing create the ultimate in aero, without compromise in acceleration, weight (1526g/set), or handling. It is the fastest and most-tested bicycle wheel ever developed.  Complete wheels include bodies and hubs. Carbon composite wheels and wheelbodies indefinitely delayed by fire.

CROSSWIND rear cassette hub -- Campy 9/10 spineShimano 8/9/10 
Campy 8/9/10 
These 100% compatible interchangeable CROSSWIND rear hubs (since 6/2000). CROSSWIND rear hubs (before 6/00) can be upgraded to the new design for less weight, less noise, and less drag. Rear hubs delayed.  Some front hubs available.

FLY  is exhilaration.  We used our composite materials, process technology, design, and testing to make the ultimate in acceleration and handling with no compromise in aero properties.  Available only in tubular tire models. The ultra low total weight 490g (16 spoke 700C tubular front) sets an acceleration standard. FLY carbon rims indefinitely delayed by fire.  New FLY tubular and clincher versions using exotic metals coming.  New models will have properties similar or better than FLY carbon models.

is an all performance metal clincher road wheel at a great price. Nimble designed a better rim extrusion and rim airfoil to balance rotating weight and side-on aero performance.  Weights are down, stiffness is up, spoke counts are down, aero
efficiency is improved. Spider sets a price performance standard.
