STOX by Hand has gained UCI-approval in the past, meaning some of their wheels are legal for use in UCI sanctioned races. The UCI approval requires one impact test at 40 joules of force. STOX by Hand has tested their rims up to 160 joules of force, starting at 40 joules and going up by 5 joule increments until reaching 160. Same rim impacted at the same place. The rim would have still passed the UCI post impact requirements. They offer a variety of wheelsets for different types of road/gravel bikes, including rim brake and disc brake wheelsets, aero wheelsets, and climbing wheelsets.
The company's wheels are made with high-quality materials and are built to last. The STOX hubs are made in France and the hubs shells / axles come with a lifetime warranty. Our rims are either EPS molded or filament wound.
