Retrogression RG50 carbon/Gran Compe SF wheelset
For this wheelset we started with rims made to our specifications by one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality carbon rims in the world, who also produces rims for several larger brands (no, we won't tell you which ones).
The 50mm deep full carbon rims have an outer width of 25mm and an ovalized U-shaped profile for increased rigidity and aerodynamics.
Laced to low flange Gran Compe SF track hubs using Sapim Race double butted spokes and Polyax brass nipples, we built these wheels to be a perfect mix of strength, durability and light weight in order to ensure they will be just as mighty on the street as they are velodrome-worthy.
Hand built by Scrod himself, so you know they're damn good.
