Rebel HS 55/80
The Rebel HS 55/80 wheelset is our take on specialist tools for racing on flat and rolling courses. They are engineered and optimized for high sustained speed and the perfect choice for Time Trials or Triathlons.
HUB / DTswiss 350
The heart of the wheelset is the bombproof DT 350 hubs. The 350 hubs are widely known as almost indestructible due to the high focus on build quality, high-performance bearings, and DTSwiss’s Star ratchet system. The outcome is a hub system that is genuinely high-performance, very reliable, easy to service, and will last close to forever.
SPOKES / Sapim CX-Sprint
The Rebel HS 55/80 wheelset uses Sapim’s CX-Sprint aero spoke.
These spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes worldwide and provide unique strength and flexibility.
RIM / HS 55/80 Carbon Rim
The Rebel HS 55/80 carbon rim uses Ultra Smooth Molding technology to reduce the rim weight, maintain strength, and ensure rigidity when racing. This also means a smoother rim surface and finish. The rim features a dual fit option so that it can be used with a standard tire/tube setup and a tubeless setup with no need for rim- or tubeless tape. Furthermore, the HS 55/80 rim is made with a hooked rim bead that provides safety and high tire compatibility.
Lastly, the Rebel HS 55/80 rim features a no temperature limit brake track that significantly improves braking performance and gives the rider a more secure and consistent braking performance on a highspeed descent or in wet conditions.
Profile / 55mm / 80mm
The Rebel HS 55/80 features a 55mm rim profile in the front and a mighty 80mm rear profile that provides the rider with pronounced aerodynamic gains and advantages.
Width / 26mm external / 19mm internal
The Rebel HS55/80 rim follows the trend on wider rims. A wider rim width provides more support for the tire’s sidewalls, which improves cornering and will give the rider more control.
A wide rim also allows riders to run much lower tire pressures and increase the amount of comfort on the bike. Lastly and most importantly, wider rims and squared-off tire profiles have superior aerodynamic properties.
The End Result
When these components all come together, the result is a super-stiff, aerodynamic, efficient and very fast wheelset.
The HS 55/80 will be the perfect weapon for being fast on the flats and cheating the wind!
