Realspeed RS 3/5 Carbon Clincher Wheelset - DT Swiss 240s Hubs
The successor to the Realspeed RS ¾ model is here. Introducing the Real Speed RS 3/5. The result of hours in the wind tunnel 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 to 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 the 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 role in maximizing the performance of the tire, providing more comfort, reduced rolling resistance, and improved grip.
