The Apex is a lightweight category
wheel system that delivers extraordinary value and ride performance.
These hand built race/trainning wheels are light and aero and offer the
performance of wheels twice the price.
wheel size: 700c
weight: 1610g set [630g/980g]
spoke count: Aero 20F/24R
hubset: Apex wheel systems orbit around a
proprietary hubset design. Patented Differential Flange Diameter™ on the rear
hub lends a mechanical advantage effectively doubling the number of functional
pulling spokes; increasing wheel durability. Black, CNC machined, hub shells
with oversized axles provide high strength, stiffness and light weight.
Optimized flange contours provide full spoke elbow support, increasing spoke
life. Precision cartridge bearings are easily serviceable.
freehub mechanism: forged aluminum freehub body has
3 independently driven hardened steel pawls. The system is strong, simple and
rims: This 440g rim is 22mm tall and has a uniform
wall thickness for added impact strength and toughness. The brake sidewalls are
brushed for optimized weight savings.
spoke & nipple: Silver, butted 14/15 gauge spokes
with wrench flats and internal alloy nipples with nylon inserts contribute to
clean aerodynamic performance and superior, long-term durability. Patented
Self-Aligning Nipple™ technology and Dish Reducing design™ reduce spoke bending
loads and rear wheel dish to increase spoke fatigue life.
extras: Rolf Prima Apex wheel systems include
custom reinforced rim tape and steel quick release skewers (105g / set).
