Wheel Warranty

Our wheels come standard with 1 year of wheel truing and 3 years of spoke replacement. 

For riders outside of the Portland area:

We include spare spokes and nipples with the wheels to repair any damage from trauma. You may also take advantage of our warranty; if you ship your wheels to us within the warrantied period, we will true them and ship them back to you free of charge.

Aluminum Alloy Nipple Warranty

We use DT Swiss high grade 7075 series alloy nipples that have been dual-stage anodized by Pace-Line. These are some of the most durable, corrosion-resistant aluminum nipples available. Still, aluminum is not as durable as brass. Even with a precision, high-quality wheel build, aluminum alloy nipples are susceptible to failure. For this reason, Sugar offers a limited 90-day warranty for aluminum alloy nipples.


Some of our high-performance production wheels come standard with aluminum alloy nipples. If requested, we will substitute them with brass at no extra charge.

Crash Replacement - Alloy Rims

We want you to confidently purchase the wheels of your dreams. All alloy wheels purchased through Sugar come with a one year crash replacement policy: replace your damaged parts for 20% off msrp and 50% off labor.

Crash Replacement - Carbon Rims

All carbon rims come standard with a generous lifetime crash replacement program from their manufacturers. As with alloy Rims, Sugar will offer replacement hubs, spokes, and nipples at 20% off regular price, and labor at 50% standard rates for repairs with in the first year of ownership.
