The Perfect Climbing Wheelset
Looking for a wheelset to KOM your local climbs or win this season's uphill time trial? Check out the ARES3:
The Rolf Prima ARES3 Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset is lightweight and wicked fast. With paired-spoke technology and 32mm, depth rims offer an aero advantage but at the weight of a pure climbing wheel. Perfect for taking your pull on the front, then claiming the KOM on the climbs.
The tubeless compatible, 19mm internal rim-width supports wider tires and guarantees premium handling. Coupled with a rim profile that minimizes side-wind interference, this is the wheelset for the hills – up and down.
Rolf Prima's US-made hubs featuring Enduro bearings, titanium freehub body, and T2 high engagement drive guarantee snappy accelerations and incredible durability.
All Rolf Prima wheels are by hand in Eugene, Oregon.
