The Optima Roche is our alloy road wheelset for serious cyclists who are looking for their first wheel upgrade, especially anyone wishing to have the option of running tubeless tyres.
Also available as a centerlock disc brake wheel set, making this an option for the ever growing market of road bikes with discs and a superb wheelset for cross.
The tubeless compatible rim design means that tubeless tyre beads snap in with ease to create an airtight seal. The rim itself is a wide 24mm, which compliments the current trend of running wider tyres. We suggest that 25mm are used with the Roche wheels for optimum performance. The wheels are supplied with Continental Grand Sport Race tyres as standard.
Our SuperG black anodized hub is handmade in Switzerland at our factory which has been making bicycle components since 1902. The hub body is guaranteed for 8 years whilst all other parts are covered for 2 years.
The Roche wheel is also covered by our crash replacement policy – see here for further details : http://www.edco.ch/edco-service/ecp-crash-program.html
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.
