  • 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 have 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. The 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 cyclocross use tyres ranging from 28c to 33c will easily be accommodated.

    Quality Rim and Hubset

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