Prime RP-38 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset

The Prime RP-38 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset is the perfect partner for those looking a 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 the 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.

For optimum braking performance, it is recommended that you only use Prime Carbon Pro brake pads.
