Details

Want to ride faster? Check out Rolf Prima's Echelons and feel the speed. These hand-built aero wheels feature blade-like 31mm-tall rims with 16 paired spokes in front and 20 in back for slippery aerodynamics. The Echelons are light enough (1,715 grams) to make training partners tremble and make you ponder why your "favorite" hill is suddenly easier. Plus, these wonder wheels are strong enough for daily training and boast an aluminum freehub body to keep the weight down.

The use of paired spokes (the left and right spokes almost meet at the rim) allows Rolf Prima spokes to neutralize the lateral force of the opposed spoke (the one on the other side). As a result, Rolf Prima wheels can use incredibly high spoke tension for exceptional strength, which also allows the use of a minimal number of spokes and light rims. The result: strong, aerodynamic wheels that are significantly lighter than most of the wheels on the market.
Rolf Prima wheels feature a Rolf rear hub with Differential Flange Diameters for greater strength. The higher, non-drive-side flange allows the use of shorter spokes, which helps balance the overall spoke tension. It also effectively doubles the number of pulling spokes capable of transmitting pedaling torque. The resulting wheel is stronger and stiffer for optimum reliability and pedaling efficiency.
