The Rolf Prima Ares3 Disc carbon clincher bike wheelset comes with free shipping and no sales taxes!
New for 2017, we’ve added a disc brake hub compatible version, for precise stopping power.
Why BUY This Rolf Prima Wheelset:
1) Paired Spokes
Our Paired Spoke technology broke new ground when it was introduced in 1997. Bringing the spokes to the rim in pairs neutralizes the left and right outward pulling forces allowing us to build true wheels on lighter rims with fewer spokes. Fewer spokes and lighter rims help create increased aerodynamics and faster performing wheels.
Watch this video explaining Paired Spokes!
2) Delta Rim Technology
In skydiving, the Delta track is the fastest position for gaining forward airspeed. Our Delta profile takes that cue using increased width and sidewall shaping to improve airflow and stability in straight on and crosswind situations. This wider rim is not just faster, but the additional tire support improves cornering and handling in all riding conditions.
3) Internal Nipples
By using internal nipples Rolf Prima is able to reduce stresses on the nipple because the nipple is in compression. Building with internal nipples also decreases overall wind drag of the wheel, increasing aerodynamic benefits. Internal nipple technology is used on all Rolf Prima road and triathlon specific wheel models.

4) Jacketed Nipple Design
The deeper the rim, the more a spoke must bend along its path to the hub flange. Our patented Jacketed Nipple Design moves the bend of the spoke away from the high stress area of the spoke threads and increases spoke life significantly.

5) Self Aligning Nipple Technology
This patented design allows the nipple to rotate in a ball and socket configuration to minimize bending in the spoke and increase spoke life.
6) Differential Flange Diameter
Our patented oversize non-drive Differential Flange provides the leverage to transmit drive torque in the rear wheel to the non-drive spokes, thereby increasing the number of torque absorbing spokes.

7) Dish Reducing Design
This patented technology increases the bracing angle of the drive side spokes to improve wheel stiffness.

Your words are too kind, Cindy R. You're making us blush!
We started as a company selling only scooters and evolved into one featuring thousands of products. Check out our transition video.
With that being said, we know "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." We still uphold certain company traditions- our annual company hacky sack race, and adult tumbling classes (it's a team-building exercise!). Yup, those still exist.
