Oregon Handmade Show 2013: Rolf Prima shows Ares 4 road disc wheels
Back at EuroBike, we spotted new wheels and updates from Rolf Prima. On hand at this years OHBS Rolf Prima had a murdred out example of their new Ares 4 road disc wheels. Those custom graphics can be had in multiple different colors for an small up charge. As Tyler learned across the pond, the disc hubs and additional spokes (20f / 20r) added 215g to the wheelset’s weight. But, you do get ceramic bearings and a Ti 11s compatible freehub. Oh, and while it looks like a brake track is there, the surface of the rim isn’t coated, and should you try to use rim brakes you will be sorely disappointed.
