Matrix 1/8th Xtreme rims
Matrix have introduced their newly designed Xtreme rim for 1/8 featuring new plastics following a year and a half research with a large European plastics company. The new design offers higher cornering speeds and lots of rear stability and will be available in three different types, normal (white plastic), carbon (with carbon) and a lightweight version. The light version uses a modified nylon which has a mass less than the polypropylene used by other manufacturers, the benefits of which is weight, these rims being the lightest on the market but with the same strength as the normal nylon rim. The weight of one set of 1/8 rims is only 62 grams. matrix will soon produce 1/10 rims with this special plastic.
