Prime RP-38 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset

The Prime RP-38 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset is the perfect partner for those looking for one wheelset to cover any situation on any terrain. With a 38mm deep aero rim profile, you will enjoy increased speed for less physical input by increasing the aerodynamic benefits across a wide range of yaw angles.

Lightweight Carbon Clincher with Optimised Rim Profile

The complete wheelset weighs in at a lightweight 1,435 grams. Prime's carbon clincher wheelset is engineered with a 25mm wide rim profile, which is optimised for use with wider tyres ranging from 25c to 33c. The ability to use a wider tyre comes with many benefits, such as a wider contact point for increased traction and cornering grip; reduced rolling resistance; and, added comfort associated with higher volume tyres. Prime's carbon clincher wheelset is versatile, so you can use it for cruising over loose terrain - such as gravel - as well as on your cyclocross bike.
