REAL SPEED  RS 50 – Advanced Propulsion

The Realspeed RS 4/5 are fast wheels. The new Realspeed RS 50 are even faster.
Everything we have learned about what makes for a set of fast wheels that can excel in a multitude of different road riding situations are embodied in these wheels

Not Similar to the RS ¾ and RS 4/5, the new RS 50 feature equal rim depths at 50mm. Equalling more balance from an aesthetic and performance perspective.

The external widths of the RS50 are 27mm for the front and 25mm for the rear. This combination is set for optimal aerodynamic integration with a 25mm tire.  The rim width also plays an important roles in maximizing the performance of the tire, providing more comfort, reduced rolling resistance, and improved grip.

The result is a more aerodynamic, laterally stiffer wheel with exceptional braking performance. If you are looking for the ultimate in aero versatility, and only want one set of wheels, this is it.

QUICK FACTS:

• Revised Rim profile design, fined tuned in the wind tunnel
• Exceptional aerodynamics with minimized turbulence in cross wind conditions
• Optimized rim width for the use of 25mm tires
• Refined depth ratio of 50mm for the front and the rear rims.


- ROCK SOLID RELIABILITY

Singular Moulding, our rim is made by using one piece construction. No partitions, no seams. This maximizing structural integrity.
The RS50 also features an asymmetrical profile which allows for equalized spoke tension and creates a stronger wheel that stays true. Furthermore, angled spoke holes at 7 degrees allows the nipple to pull straight in line with the spoke for reduced stress. This results in fewer broken spokes and nipples.

- STOP ON A DIME: VOLCAN Technology

The amount of effort we placed on improving aerodynamic efficiency we equaled to improve braking performance.
For the RS50 we chose to build the rims using prepreg carbon fiber, which is carbon that already has a high TG resin impregnated into the material. This allows for more precision when shaping the rim, reducing the amount of material and resin being applied to reduce weight and heat retention. Our New VOLCAN braking surface uses a Basalt finishing treatment, which is a naturally fire-resistant hard and dense volcanic rock to minimize heat buildup and improve overall stopping performance.

The result is a rim that is provides a high rate of heat dissipation under heavy braking loads, maximizing the performance of the wheel.

- HAND BUILT

As always, all our Realspeed wheels are hand built in Canada with precision and great attention to detail. We use Belgian CX Ray spokes and nipples, along with your choice of Realspeed Japanese bearing hubs. All our wheels are built and quality control tested to the highest standards, ensuring that you are getting the perfect set of wheels that will provide many seasons of reliability and performance.
