At a weight normally found on higher priced wheels, the Aspin SL is a secret weapon for anyone who rides them. Named for the famed climb in the French Pyrenees, the Aspin SL is an upgrade to our long popular Aspin wheelset. The Aspin SL is based on the technology of the Elan and designed for racers and enthusiasts who want the high end climbing performance with added rim toughness for everyday use.
The Aspin SL's are built around the TdF2.4 proprietary hub with CNC machined flanges to remove excess weight. The front hub has a wide flange placement which increases the lateral wheel stiffness. The rear hub features our Patented Differential Flange Diameter, which effectively doubles the number of pulling spokes and creates a more durable wheel. Black, CNC machined, hub shells with oversized alloy axles and sealed cartridge bearings provide high strength, stiffness and light weight.
The forged aluminum freehub body has 3 independently driven hardened steel pawls. The system is strong, simple and dependable.
The Aspin SL rim is designed for the rigors of everyday use. The 22mm tall, single cavity, alloy rim offers excellent lateral and torsional stiffness with additional toughness at a new low weight. The brake sidewalls are CNC-machined for smooth, consistent braking performance. Built for everyday use - including race day.
Spoke and Nipple
The Aspin SL wheel set features paired, 14/17 gauge [front] and 14/17 and 14/15 gauge [rear] custom butted spokes with wrench flats and internal alloy nipples to create a quicker accelerating, faster climbing wheel with superior, long-term durability. Self-locking thread technology ensures wheels stay true longer. Our patented, Self Aligning Nipple™ design significantly increases spoke fatigue life by allowing the nipple to orient to the spoke angle with less bend.
Rolf Prima Aspin SL wheel systems include custom reinforced rim tape and steel quick release skewers.
