And complete wheelset prices start at just £900…
Prime Primavera light, affordable wheels
First noticed by us as the premium house-brand components of Vitus bikes, Prime Bike Components are also available consumer-direct from their parent partner retailer Wiggle – aiming to establish themselves as an affordable upgrade for any bike. Cutting out the middleman means great value, but like Vitus, Prime hasn’t really been skimping on the product R&D either.
These new Primavera carbon road wheels set a new benchmark for the brand with all-new blunt-nosed CFD-optimized aero rim profiles, depth-optimized material layup reinforcement, and a new in-house developed hub with ratchet freehub since DT’s patent expired.
Each of the new rims shares a T800 UD carbon base material with a 23mm wide internal (30mm external) hooked tubeless-ready profile – 32mm, 44mm, 56mm & 85mm deep – making them both more aero and structurally stronger. The two deeper 56 & 85mm profiles add a thin layer of Kevlar through the middle of their taller rim walls to increase impact strength & durability, while keeping weight low.
The new 24-hole straight-pull centerlock 6063-T6 alloy hubs feature proven DT-style heat-treated carbon steel star ratchet internals with a 36T ring standard and dual springs – upgradable to 54T.
The new 12mm thru-axle hubs rotate on oversized alloy axles, spin on premium Japanese steel sealed bearings, and are laced to the carbon rims with DT Swiss Aerocomp/Aerolite spokes & alloy DT nipples. Freehubs are available for Shimano HG, SRAM XDR & Campagnolo cassettes.
Complete wheelset weights are claimed 32mm deep at 1272g, 44mm deep at 1378g, 56mm deep at 1482g, and 962g for the 85mm deep rear wheel.
