Prime RP-50 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset

The Prime RP-50 Carbon Clincher Wheelset is all about straight-line speed and the transfer of power from pedals to the rear wheel for maximum acceleration. Ideal for crit racing, Time Trials and rolling terrain where speed and reduced aerodynamic drag are key; Prime's 50mm carbon clinchers are the performance edge you are looking for.

Lightweight Deep Carbon Clincher

The Prime RP-50 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset offers a 50mm deep aero rim profile to deliver increased speed for less physical input. That's free speed! This is achieved by increasing the aerodynamic benefits across a wide range of yaw angles. This combined weight of this Prime RP-50 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset is 1,546 grams.

Wide Rim Profile: Comfortable Carbon Clincher

This Prime RP-50 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset has a 25mm wide rim profile that is optimised for use with wider tyres ranging from 25c to 33c. Using wider tyres offer many benefits, such as a wider contact patch for increased traction and cornering grip, reduced rolling resistance, and added comfort. For gravel and cyclo-cross use tyres ranging from 28c to 33c will easily be accommodated.

Quality Rim and Hubset

The RP-50 features Prime's CC-50 rims with R010 hubset and is hand built with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and Sapim Secure Lock aluminium nipples. For optimum braking performance, it is recommended that you only use Prime Carbon Pro brake pads.

Prime RP-50 Carbon Clincher Wheelset
Score: 8.2 / 10

Indeed, the RP-50s largely matched the performance of the Bora 50s and Roval CLX 50s...the differences were a matter of nuance.
