The RX50 Disc brake wheel set offers some of the most cutting edge technology in the world of road disc brake application and offers maximum braking performance for cyclists riding a road or CX bike with disc brakes. The 50mm profile rim featured in the RX50 differs quite significantly in comparison to its rim brake counter-part.

Specifically built to go fast and stop fast

The vast majority of so called “disc brake” wheelsets are nothing more than rim brake wheels built up with disc hubs. One of the most primary concerns with disc application on the road is added weight of its components. The evolution of disc brakes on roads bikes has come a long way in the elimination of unnecessary weight. Removal of the braking surface from the rim subtracts rotational mass, increases structural properties to improve aerodynamics and better tubeless applications.

The RX50 Disc brake wheel set offers some of the most cutting edge technology in the world of road disc brake application and offers maximum braking performance for cyclists riding a road or CX bike with disc brakes. The 50mm profile rim featured in the RX50 differs quite significantly in comparison to its rim brake counter-part.

By removing braking surface, it provides the ability to change some of the specifics of the rim. Lighter weight because the material used for heat dissipation under heavy braking is eliminated.

Increased structural integrity, as more room has been created to focus on those characteristics. Asymmetrical rim profile allows for equalized spoke tension which creates a stronger wheel that holds true.

Angled holes allows the nipple to pull straight in line with the spoke for reduced stress. This results in fewer broken spokes and nipples.

Dual tire applications for tubeless and clincher, and the rim has been optimized for use with 28mm tires, but is still capable of running narrower and wider tires.
