The Scope R5 is our most aerodynamic wheelset. The rim brake version weighs 1.595 grams, the disc brake version 1.632 grams. With a rim width of 26 mm and a depth of 55 mm it is tailored for high speed. It is extremely stiff, accelerates fast and does allow you to maintain your pace, even in crosswinds. The R5 will, therefore, save you valuable watts to ride faster longer: An eye-catcher that redefines the standard!
DEVELOPED TO PERFORM
All Scope wheelsets are developed as a system. The hubs feature a characteristic wide flange distance and as such allow for an equal spoke tension. Combined with our road specific wide full-carbon rims the R5 offers a very high lateral stiffness, to minimize power loss and guarantee predictability and efficiency.
The rim shape of the R5 is based on the findings of iteratively used computational fluid dynamics and efficiently reduces drag and negative crosswind influences. Tests have shown that the R5 outperforms the competition from other premium wheel brands while setting a new performance benchmark in its category.
The tire bed of the R5 is optimized for tubeless tires and offers an internal rim width of 19 mm. The wider rim allows for an increased diameter of the mounted tire. As a result, a 25 mm tire will have a diameter of 26 mm. Additionally, the tire will perfectly sit on the inner sidewalls of the rim.
The Scope R5c, our rim brake version of the R5 wheelset, has a special braking surface which works best in combination with our Scope brake pads. The brake pads are developed in house and offer a powerful yet linear braking behavior. Even in rainy conditions or the most challenging descents you’ll be able to effortlessly dose your riding speed.
