If you’re looking for a durable, year-round wheelset then the Optima Roches are the ideal starting point.
They are aimed at serious cyclists who are looking for their first wheel upgrade, especially anyone wishing to have the option of running tubeless tyres.
Each wheelset is handmade in Germany, and compromises of two high quality extruded 6000 rims, connected by tapered Sapim Race spokes to a SuperG hub.
The tubeless compatible rim design means that tubeless tyres fit perfectly, creating an airtight seal making inflation easy. The rim itself is a wide 24mm, which compliments the current trend of running wider tyres. We suggest that 25mm are used with the Roches wheels for optimum performance.
Col des Roches – located on the border of Switzerland and France in the Jura range, the Roches pass has a maximum elevation of 919 meters.
