The over-achieving aero performer.
Combining Rolf Prima's wind-cutting paired spoke technology with their Delta rim profile, the Ares4 7.0 Carbon Wheelset is both feather light and incredibly responsive. With 42mm of depth and 26mm of width, the wheelset provides exceptional aero performance – especially when paired with the modern wider road tires.
We decided to take their 7.0 upgrade, so these wheels feature upgraded spokes (Sapim CX-Ray and Sapim Speed), a Ballistic Armor coated TdF5.5 hubset with Enduro XD-15 Ceramic bearings, and their new-for-2018 T2 High Engagement drive mechanism.
The Rolf Prima Ares4 7.0 Carbon Clincher Wheelset includes rim strips, valve extender, and a QR set.
