  • Prime RP-50 Carbon Tubular Road Wheelset

    The Prime RP-50 Carbon Tubular Wheelset is all about straight-line speed and 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 the key factors in performance gains!

    Our 50mm deep aero rim profile offers increased speed for less physical input by increasing the aerodynamic benefits across a wide range of yaw angles.

    Our 25mm wide rim profile is optimised for use with wider tyres ranging from 25c to 33c. For road use 25c to 30c tyres can easily be accommodated with our preference swaying towards 25c for all round use.

    The use of wider tyres provides a wider contact patch for increased traction and cornering grip, reduced rolling resistance and increased comfort.

    For gravel and cyclocross use, tyres ranging from 28c to 33c will easily be accommodated.

    The RP-50 features our CT-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 we recommend you only use Prime Carbon Pro brake pads.
