    Rolf Prima Ralos 9 CXC

    Does anybody have time on these?

    Rolf Prima Ralos 9 CXC

    I have the Rolf Vigor wheelset on my road bike and have been happy with them.

    And this seems positive...

    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Re: Rolf Prima Ralos 9 CXC

    I've been considering some of those as well. I also have vigors (rs model) on my road bike and like them. Friends that have run Rolf mtb wheels have had good luck. Doesn't seem to be much info on these in actual use. I'd sure rather support Rolf than spec, the warranty and price of the specialized wheels is making it tough though.

    It would be nice to see both a rim profile view and an interior measurement. CX in the name suggests a lack of width.$1200 price point would be more competitive.

    The outside width looks to be 27mm. I'd say they are probably at least 21mm interior. I'm going to fire off an email to them to find out.

    I'd venture to guess that the "CXC" denotes "Carbon XC", not "CX" as in "Cyclocross".

    I know in the past Rolf has used White Industries as their hub supplier, not sure if this is the case with this wheelset. So, if these hubs are made by WI, US manufactured hubs and hand built wheels in Eugene, Oregon is a plus in my book.

    At 27mm outside width, these would fall between the Enve 29 XC and AM rims.

    I got an email back, and they are stated to be a "hair" under 21mm internal width.

    I am considering purchasing these wheels as well... anyone has actually ridden them? I am 220 fully loaded rider wight and aggresivee all mountain rider, My previous wheels usually get a lot of side hits due to loose rocks where I ride. I am wondering if these wheels being carbon would hold up. Any insight is appreciated.
