We proudly present: the new ROSE design of the hand-laced ROSE RC-Fifty Rim Carbon wheelset for your road bike with rim brakes. With a medium-high rim profile of 47 mm on both the front and rear wheel, the ROSE RC-Fifty is ideally suited for long, flat stages. But also in competition, when it comes down to performance and time, this carbon wheelset cuts a fine figure on your road bike thanks to its excellent aerodynamics, agility and manoeuvrability.

Everything stands and falls with the rim

The elegant carbon rims of the ROSE RC-Fifty Rim road bike wheelset were developed completely in-house and have a special construction that makes them very light and yet stable and resistant. Of course, we follow the trend towards wider tyres and therefore gave the rim a full inner width of 19 mm and “tubeless-ready” compatibility - no upgrades needed. You can also ride the RC-Fifty carbon wheels of course in a conventional way with conventional tyres and inner tubes.
Thanks to the asymmetrical and bellied rim profile, the carbon rims not only minimize air resistance, but also reduce annoying air turbulence. Even strong crosswinds are optimally dissipated. As a rider you can feel full control over your road bike in every riding situation and save valuable energy for the really important duels on the track. Be it against your competitors in the sprint, against the mountain on a 15% gradient or simply against you and your weaker self.

The hub is the "heart"

We didn’t want to compromise on the hubs! That is why they come from Newmen – a small but excellent material forge for high-end components. The CNC-milled hub body with the lowest tolerances has a high material thickness at the neuralgic points, e.g. the highly loaded transition between the front disc holder and the spoke flange, and thus large safety reserves. At other points, the material could again be reduced to such an extent that a very low hub weight was nevertheless achieved. In the rear wheel hub, a freewheel with a precise ratchet system also ensures direct traction and maximum propulsion. The high-quality, double-sealed industrial bearings with our specially developed high-performance grease filling ensure reliable and long-lasting function as well as extremely simple operation. An often complicated adjustment of the bearing clearance is not necessary.

Robust aero spokes and inverted nipples

Strong SAPIM CX-Sprint Straightpull Aero spokes provide a stable and reliable connection between the Newman hubs and ROSE RC-Fifty carbon rims. 20 spokes in the front and 21 spokes in the rear wheel, plus the 2-fold crossed spoking, are designed to handle high loads when used with the modern, powerful disc brakes. The reliable SAPIM aluminium spoke nipples lie aerodynamically inside the rim and are mounted inverted, so basically “wrong way around”. The nipple is supported on conically shaped SAPIM nipple washers, which ensures an even distribution of the load and thus a relief of both the spokes and the rims. This drastically reduces the probability of spokes breaking.

Nothing beats honest craftmanship

In line with our long-standing company tradition, we completely dispensed with machine spoking in the ROSE RC-Fifty rim wheelset. Instead, each individual wheel is spoked and centred by hand at our company headquarter in Bocholt. This way, our experienced wheel builders guarantee the best possible quality in spoke tension and concentricity.

Due to our high-quality and very durable grease filling and the fixed bearing clearance, the hub bearings can run somewhat heavier at the beginning. However, this has no effect on the riding and improves after a short running-in time.
