RLR 50s are designed to be fast. Fit for any road surface including gravel, RLR 50s excel as speeds increase!

RLR 50's combine the aerodynamics of their 50mm deep, WindShadow™ shape with outstanding lateral stiffness, to create a quick-accelerating, fast-rolling, sharp-handling weapon. 

Vertical ride compliance, torsional stiffness, and aerodynamic performance is improved by the use of our US-Built, lifetime guaranteed, SPDR™ straight-pull, centerlock, hubs and 24 Sapim CX Ray semi-areo spokes per wheel, laced two-cross (straight-pull hubs from many other hub makers count the spoke lobe as one of the crossing points and call this design "3-cross") .   

The 23mm internal width and 30mm external width of the RLR offers the versatility to run tire widths ranging from 25mm-48mm.  RLR 50s employ a traditional hooked bead allowing them to be run with tubed tires as small as 25mm (although they ship set up tubeless ready-to-ride with Ride Lock™ Tubeless Tape and Nut Jobs™ Valves).  Aerodynamic performance is optimized on the road with 28c tires.

Performance by design

The Difference is in the Details

At RF, we're obsessed with the belief that the "whole" should be greater than the sum of its parts.  It's why we build our wheels in-house, by hand.  It's also what leads us to design and manufacture almost all of the components that we use to build our complete wheels.  From hubs & rims, to tubeless tape & valves, we design each and every part to work together flawlessly as well as to excel individually.

I can't believe how much I've enjoyed these Livewire wheels...I'm glad I was introduced to this small, SoCal company because these cross-country wheels have been a revelation to me!  MTBR.com Gear of the Year

We have to give it to RideFast for building such top quality equipment.  If trusty and durable carbon wheels are on your wish list, check out the Hotlines.  MBA Field Test
