2011 Rolf Prima TT85, TDF Wheels
Rolf Prima has not been known to make a lot of waves in the bike world, but it must not be taken for granted. Coming out in 2011 are the Rolf Prima TT85 and the TDF deep section carbon tubular wheels. These are made around 23mm wide and 85mm deep carbon rims carefully hand-laced with 12 spokes from front to rear for stiffness and aerodynamic performance. The two wheelsets are created on Rolf’s Tdf 4.4 hubset of titanium freehub body and quick releases, which maintains a much lighter weight. The TT85 weighs 1685gms and Tdf 85 weighs 1695gms each pair respectively. The two deep-section wheelsets have a cost price of $2200 per pair.
In addition to these new releases, Rolf Prima upgraded the Tdf 58 with 16 spokes to the front and 16 at the rear for added stiffness. To complete its expanded range of paired spokes for 2011, it is issuing a couple of new wheels with aluminum clincher wheelsets, the 58RSC 58mm deep and the 38RSC 38mm deep, both manually laced with 16 spokes up front and 20 spokes at the rear.
