Prime RR-50 Road Wheels
The Prime RR-50 Carbon Tubular wheelset is all about straight-line speed and transfer of power from pedals to the rear wheel for maximum acceleration! Ideal for crit racing, time trials and rolling terrain where speed and reduced aerodynamic drag are the key factors in performance gains! Our 50mm deep aero rim profile offers increased speed for less physical input by increasing the aerodynamic benefits across a wide range of yaw angles. Our 25mm wide rim profile is optimised for use with wider tyres ranging from 25c to 33c. For road use 25c to 30c tyres can easily be accommodated with our preference swaying towards 25c for all round use. The use of wider tyres provides a wider contact patch for increased traction and cornering grip, reduced rolling resistance and increased comfort. For gravel and cyclocross use, tyres ranging from 28c to 33c will easily be accommodated. The RR-50 features our CT-50 rims and R020 hubset laced together with DT Swiss Double Butted spokes and finished off with DT Swiss Pro Lock nipples. For optimum braking performance we recommend you only use Prime Carbon Pro brake pads.

About Chain Reaction Cycles
This product is for sale at Chain Reaction Cycles, one of the largest online cycle shops in the world. Opening in 1985, and starting off as a small independent bike shop in Ballynure, it moved to Ballyclare in 1989 and is now based in Doagh (all in Northern Ireland). In addition to regular local service, Chain Reaction Cycles (or CRC as it is often abbreviated to) established itself as a mail order business via advertisements in bicycle magazines; this continued until 1999 where it launched it's now famous website at ChainReactionCycles.com. Their blue themed website stocks around 90,000 products ranging from MTB & Road cycling equipment, to triathlon, BMX and running kit. As per several other leading bike shops, Chain Reaction produce their own product ranges, under brands such as Brand X. To this day CRC sponsor many cycling events, and due to the company's size and efficiency are able to offer very competitive pricing on cycle equipment. In 2016 Wiggle acquired Chain Reaction Cycles, although the two websites continue to operate independently of each other, both with their own distinctive branding and product ranges.
