Real Speed 3/5 Carbon Clincher Wheelset
The successor to the Realspeed RS ¾ model are here. Introducing the Real Speed RS 3/5. The result of hours in the windtunnel that takes versatility to another level. The RS 3/5 is light enough for the steepest of climbs but still boasts legitimate aerodynamic performance to increase speed while maintaining exceptional stability.
Similar to the RS ¾ the new RS 3/5 features staggered rim depths, which delivers an optimized balance of aerodynamics and overall stability. The front and rear wheels react differently and that is primarily due to how they are exposed to the wind, along with the front wheel being hinged and the rear being fixed. The yaw angles which the front wheel are subject to are vast and change more frequently. Through our development, we have discovered that a shallower front rim, and deeper rear rim is most efficient. The RS 3/5, depths have been revised to 38mm at the front and 50mm at the rear.
The external widths of the RS 3/5 are 27mm for the front and 28mm for the rear. This combination is set for optimal aerodynamic integration with a 25mm tire. The stagger also plays an important roles in maximizing the performance of the tire, providing more comfort, reduced rolling resistance, and improved grip.
