Hope Technology RD40 Carbon Clincher Centre Lock Disc Rear Wheel
Hand-built in Barnoldswick, Lancashire with the attention to detail that Hope Technology are renowned for, the RD40 Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel is strong and reliable. Suited to both cross and road bike setups, the rim widths of 19mm and 26.5mm, internally and externally respectively, are perfect for larger volume tyres. The tubeless-ready construction means you can convert with the addition of just tape and a valve, and run lower tyre pressures for improved protection against punctures and improved performance, ride feel and comfort.
The RS4 hub engages fast for efficient power transfer, and the sealed stainless steel cartridge bearings and forged aluminium shell improve reliability and longevity. Ride faster thanks to the reduced drag 2 pawl ratchet mechanism. 24 Sapim CX-Ray black straight pull spokes lace the hub to the 20FIVE carbon rim. With a rim depth of 40mm, you get a great balance of low weight and aerodynamics.
Offerings of both Shimano/SRAM and Campagnolo freehubs make this a versatile option that will suit all riders on an 11-speed setup. Complete your bike by pairing this wheel with the RD40 Carbon Clincher Centre Lock Disc Front Wheel.
