From humble beginnings in 2015, South Industries has steadily been improving and expanding our range of products. Extensive investment in our production facility has allowed us to improve accuracy and repeatability in our processes which has enabled us to manufacture our rims to even higher quality and improve the performance.
We are very proud to still be the only 100% locally manufactured composite bicycle part manufacturer in South Africa with 100% of our #handgemaak carbon products being design and manufactured right here in South Africa.
Over the last four years our #handgemaak rims have been race proven winning numerous titles across all mountain biking disciplines. These include 6 Elite South African National XCM titles, Cape Epic stage wins, 3 African Continental XCO Championship gold medals, 4 Namibian National XCM titles, 4 Namibian XCO titles, 2 South African National Enduro titles and an age group podium at the Trans Provence Enduro.
Having our products raced at the highest level has enabled us to constantly test and improve them to the point where we can now offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY on our range of carbon rims. All new South Industries rims will now be covered by our lifetime warranty to be free from manufacturing defects in material and/or workmanship and we also now offer a lifetime crash replacement policy. More details are available on our website.
We are also excited to launch our new GX all road rim. Designed to meet the needs of the new generation of disc brake-equipped all-road bikes. The 22mm internal width and hookless bead was designed to pair faultlessly with the latest generation of tubeless gravel and road tyres. Suitable for 28mm to 45mm tyres. Extensive field testing has shown this rim to be very capable on and off road.
