A limitless all-road riding experience
The Essentia 40 is the ultimate all-road wheel. Destined to erase the borders between road and gravel, the hookless rim is designed to maximize comfort and control with wider tubeless tires using lower pressures. Fast, lightweight, ultra-versatile and produced in France at our workshop in Loriol-sur-Drôme. The Essentia benefits from the full extent of CORIMA's unmatched experience and capabilities in creating wheels with the ultimate performance, reliability, and design aestetics.
A hookless rim
The Essentia 40 is designed for use with tubeless tires for improved comfort, grip and puncture resistance. At CORIMA we have chosen the hookless technology for the rim. The straight inner profile saves weight and is more versatile, while the lack of hooked sides also means the wheels are sturdier and offer better handling by allowing the tire to perfectly follow the shape of the rim.
As a result, the Essentia 40 is formidable on asphalt combined with 28mm tires and can accommodate gravel tires up to 50mm to take on the most demanding surfaces.
Performance meets strength
To ensure even power distribution, optimal performance and improved sturdiness, the Essentia 40 is equipped with our new Ratchet system with 36 teeth and a 10 degree angle of engagement.
The CORIMA touch
Efficient, versatile and accessible, the Essentia 40 all-road wheels are 100% Made in France in CORIMA’s own workshops. 24 stainless steel spokes, arranged in an exclusive CORIMA-specific pattern, take care of stiffness and reliability, while the hub is custom-designed to withstand intense gravel use.
The rim construction draws on the very best of our expertise: structural foam inside the rim, selection and master layup of the best 3k carbon fibers, an elegant and distinctive look all come together at a value unique on the market today.
This mechanism inside the hub has been specifically designed to handle higher levels of torque in order to guarantee exceptional reliability when faced with intensive use on rough roads.
Tips and restrictions
Running tubeless tires requires specific care when it comes to installation and maintenance.
