Realspeed Radium RS30 Ceramic Wheelset
The Radium30 Ceramic features the same 30mm depth profile, and a width profile at 21mm as the Radium30. Adding to all the great features of that rim is a set of RS Ceramic hubs,that catapults the efficiency of the Radium30 wheels to a higher level of performance. The addition of ceramic bearings decreases rolling resistance, and reduces mechanical drag. The result is a smoother operating, faster, and more durable set of wheels
The Radium30 Ceramic wheels are also tubeless ready, so dialling up those characteristics is only a set of tubeless tires away. With all that rolling performance the Radium30 Ceramic wheels have incredible braking performance. All Radium rim brake specific wheels have BLKO anodized braking surfaces. The anodized surface is more than just cosmetics. The hardened braking surface dramatically increases braking performance by regulating the heat retention of the braking area, maximizing braking performance in all weather conditions.
- Handbuilt in Canada. Like all Realspeed wheels, the Radium series wheels are 100% handbuilt in Canada, using the highest quality components and attention to detail. The results is the most reliable performing wheels you can ride.
- BLKO braking surface: Brake like no other. All Radium rim brake specific wheels feature black anodized braking surfaces. The result is a wheel that looks fast, but more importantly stops fast. The treated surface increases heat regulation of the braking surface, ensuring ultimate braking performance in all weather conditions.
- Lightweight: Having durability doesn’t mean you have to significantly sacrifice performance. At 1540 grams for the set, the Realspeed Radium wheels are lighter than most carbon clinchers, but provide greater durability from its anodized alloy rim, backed by its hand built construction using only the best quality hubs, spokes and nipples.
- Ceramic Bearings: Implementation of ceramic bearings to the cycling industry has been one of the most impactful performance enhancements. Arguably the most crucial part of a bike are the wheels. Applying the benefits of ceramic bearings, dramatically reduces rolling resistance, mechanical drag, and increases the longevity of the bearing compared to traditional stainless steel bearings.
*Please be advised that wet and/or dirty road surfaces will contaminate your brake pads. Regularly inspecting, cleaning, and replacing your brake pads will help prolong rim life.
Use of clean alloy rim specific rubber brake pads will result in the longest life of the BLKO brake surface. Brake pads should be inspected before each use to ensure that road grit and debris are not embedded in the brake pads, as this will cause the anodized surface to wear much faster and affect the rims’ appearance and life span.
