Realspeed RS50 Tubular - DT Swiss 240
Through all that we have learned from our original RS5/6 model, we have identified that the most balanced profile is 55mm. Even though the RS5/6 staggered profiles of a 50mm front and 60mm rear wheel provided some compelling performance. Overall, the 55mm rim profile provided what we believe is the most optimized depth for peak aerodynamics at a multitude of different yaw angles. When rim depth increases past 60mm, they are faster at more closed angles, but less efficient at wider yaw angles. The 55mm depth also provides less of weight penalty, resulting in a perfectly balanced aero focused wheelset, with little compromise.

The RS 50T rims are tubular tire-specific constructed carbon rim The undeniable choice for those seeking every ounce of performance.
50MM RIM PROFILE
The RS50T features a 50mm depth rim profile. Providing a lighter and more agile ride, while still retaining a great amount of lateral stiffness and aerodynamic efficiency.
Rim Brake or Disc Brake
The Realspeed RS50T wheels are available in either rim brake or disc brake application.
DT SWISS 240 HUBS
The RS50 DT240 are built with the latest generation of the 240 hub from DT Swiss. The strengths have been further enhanced. The latest DT Swiss Ratchet EXP® freehub system increases the bearing lifetime thanks to the increased bearing distance. The hollow-machined ratchets transfers the energy invested directly into acceleration thanks to the 36 teeth.
