REBEL ROYAL 45 Disc
Get The Royal Treatment
The Rebel Royal wheelset is our approach to a mid-range wheelset. Like our entry wheelset, the Royal is also characterized by its lower price point than the Royal Pro or the Rocket wheelset. But the Royal certainly makes a name for itself because of its use of high quality components, which you usually see in much more expensive wheelsets.
HUB / DT Swiss 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 wheelset uses superstrong aero CX-Sprint spokes from Sapim. The CX-sprint provides the Royal wheelset with strength and flexibility.
RIM / The Royal Carbon Rim
The Royal 45 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 Royal 45 rim uses advanced machinery and Diamond Polishing Treatment for the braking surface, which allows braking directly on the woven carbon fiber, which improves braking performance in both wet and dry weather conditions.
Furthermore, the Royal 45 carbon 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 / 28mm profile
The Rebel Royal 45 rim follows the trend on wider rims. A wider rim width provides more support for the tire’s sidewalls. This improves cornering and will give the rider more control. A wide rim also allows riders to run much lower tire pressures and through that, 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 ingredients are mixed, the result is a light, aerodynamic, durable, and stiff wheelset that is capable of taking on whatever possible challenge you throw at it., no matter terrain or discipline.
Heading out chasing KOMs and Strava-segments, doing local bike races, or Gran Fondos – The Rebel Royal wheelset will deliver!
