hubset: Each Rolf Prima wheel orbits around a proprietary hubset designed and manufactured in the USA. Patented Differential Flange Diameter™ on the rear hub lends a mechanical advantage effectively doubling the number of functional pulling spokes; increasing wheel durability. CNC machined, black anodized hub shells with oversized axles provide high strength, stiffness and light weight. Optimized flange contours provide full spoke elbow support, increasing spoke life. Hubs also feature precision cartridge bearings with low drag supplementary contact seals and bearing preload adjustment on both front and rear hub shells.

freehub mechanism: CNC machined steel freehub body has 3 sprung steel pawls for a bomb-proof torque transfer system. Pawls are driven by 3 hardened steel leaf springs. The system is strong, simple and dependable.

rims: This 500gram rim looks very similar to the Vigor rim, but slightly shorter at 31mm tall. The rim section has a more uniform wall thickness for added impact strength and toughness. The brake sidewalls are brushed for optimized weight savings.

spoke & nipple: Black, custom aero profile, 14 gauge spokes and internal alloy nipples with nylon inserts contribute to clean aerodynamic performance and superior, long-term durability. Patented, Jacketed Nipple Design™ and Dish Reducing design™ reduce spoke bending loads and rear wheel dish to increase spoke fatigue life.

extras: Rolf Prima Echelon wheel systems include custom reinforced rim tape and steel quick release skewers (105g / set).
