Rebel HS80 – Full Speed!
The Rebel HS80 wheelset is our take on a specialist tool for racing on flat and rolling courses. They are engineered and optimized for high sustained speed and are therefore a perfect choice for Time Trials or Triathlons.
HUB / DTswiss 350
The heart of the wheelset is the bombproof DT 350 hubs. These hubs are widely known as almost indestructible because of 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 Royal Pro 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 / The HS80 carbon rim
The Rebel HS80 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 HS80 rim is made with a hooked rim bead that provides safety and high tire compatibility.
Profile / 80mm
The Rebel HS80 features a mighty 80mm profile that provides the rider with pronounced aerodynamic gains and advantages.
Width / 26mm external / 19mm internal
The Rebel HS80 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 HS80 will be the perfect weapon for being fast on the flats and cheating the wind!
