STRADA SAYS: new for 2018 the Scope Cycling rim range offer genuine aero profiles, quality carbon layup and value for money rims in disc and rim brake profiles from 35 to 55mm deep. Tubeless ready, with a 2 yr warranty and hand built in Sussex with quality hubs by expert wheel builders. Use the drop down configurator to order your Scope R5 wheels today.
The main objective of the Scope R5 is to build up and maintain high speeds. The 26 mm wide and 55 mm deep rim provides excellent aerodynamics, saving a significant amount of watts. In addition, the R5 is extremely stiff, making it ideal for sprints where the bike is pushed to the limit. Contrary to what one might think, the R5 can also be used in cross winds due to the wide shape of the rim. Above all, the R5 just looks great and is a real eye-catcher.
AERO AND TUBELESS
Computational Fluid Dynamics are used iteratively in order to reduce the drag and crosswind influence from all angles, while benchmarking and outperforming other premium brands. The tyre bed of the rim is optimised for tubeless tyres while being compatible with all clincher tyres. The internal width of the rim is 19 mm, when mounting a 25 mm tyre the actual tyre width will become 26 mm thereby perfectly aligning the sidewalls of the rim.
Fast wheels mean that you also have to brake hard. For the rim brake series Scope has developed a special braking surface compound and brake pads that are tuned to fit this brake track. Even in rainy conditions you will feel confident in the longest and steepest descents. The unique resin used by Scope in the carbon rims can handle an industry leading high temperature of 260°C.
