Rolf Prima 2013 Vigor 700C Clincher Road Wheelset

Paired spoking is when the spokes meet at the rim in pairs. In conventional wheels the spokes are evenly spaced. Tensioned spokes pull not only down toward the hub, but also outward toward the flanges. When spokes are paired at the rim, these left and right pulling forces are neutralized. Pairing the spokes allows Rolf to use fewer spokes on lighter rims than anyone. The Delta Rim Technology is a shaped profile that improves tire fit, creating a more aerodynamic interface with the tire as well as better tire support. Our wider tire bed fits tightly to the tire sidewalls smoothing airflow and better supporting the tire sidewalls. This improves turning precision, ride comfort and overall handling. Rolf Prima's Differential Flange Diameter technology transmits drive torque in the rear wheel across both flanges to increase the number of pulling spokes. This means even with Rolf Prima's low spoke counts, you still have the same number of pulling spokes as a traditional spoked wheel. Rolf Prima's Dish Reducing Design reduces the dish of the drive side spokes, increasing stiffness and making for a more stable and smoother ride. Dish Reducing Design technology is used on all Rolf Prima wheel models.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, something a bit different
My SuperSix came with a set of rs10s which are fine for training and winter work but first upgrade on my list were a new set of wheels for general use ... and I am delighted with them.
I wanted a quality wheel that provided a balance of aero and lightness, I took what appears to be a usual route of agonising over whether I should buy C24s, Mavic Kyseriums, Fulcrum zeros but the Rolfs won through.
They are well crafted, live up to their hype in all respects and who doesn't like a set of wheels that have pimpy lacing!
