Matrix have introduced their updated 1/8th scale rim called the ‘Five’. Maintaining the same overall look and main characteristics of its predecessor it has some really important innovations. Firstly it is more rigid on the outside to ensure greater cornering, better balanced for better handling and has increased stability to prevent any nervousness. The introduction of holes around the outer edge allows the insertion of tungsten headless screw with calibrated weight for perfect balancing. Matrix say the rim is only the first part of a new, more complex and articulated concept, which will take balancing to a higher level, with more information on the system coming shortly. The wheels are available for front and rear in Light, Carbon, Precision and Flex versions.
