Scope has launched a new range of carbon fibre wheels named Artech. Artech wheels will be available for Road, All road, gravel and triathlon applications. Dutch wheel manufacturer Scope says the lightweight and aerodynamic wheels are inspired by nature. 

Scope claims the Artech wheel series will be ‘a revolution for the cycling industry’ and the collection appears to have some unique design features according to the brand’s press release. Eye-catching details include very low overall weights, 3D-printed hub shells, algorithm-enhanced aerodynamics and aero inspiration from fish scales (yes, fish scales).

Scope has garnered attention in the past for its Atmoz self-inflating tyre system which was tested by teams like DSM ahead of Paris-Roubaix in 2023. The system hasn’t been used in action yet but we will be on the lookout again in the run-up to this year’s edition of Paris-Roubaix next month.
