ROLF PRIMA ARES 6 ES (60MM) CARBON WHEELSET
Ares6 ES and Ares 6 ES Disc
Workhorse Wheel for the Masses
Get the benefits that make the Ares6 the Race Across America’s official wheel, with price that won’t break the bank. The light-weight carbon rim keeps things quick on the climbs, while the deep rim maximizes speed all-day-long. With the Ares6 ES, aero-advantages are no longer just for the biggest spenders.
The updated 20mm (internal) rim-width and tubeless compatibility further enhances ride quality and wide-tire compatibility over previous models and our reliable yet budget-friendly 3.0 level hubs for rim or disc brake things running smooth and fast. For even more performance advantages, level-up to the standard Ares6 model.
Available in disc and rim brake options. Add a tubeless kit to your order and you’ll have what you need to get set up in a snap.
