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.
The following parts are included with the R5 wheelsets.
1 pair of Scope quick releases
1 set of Scope carbon brake pads
10spd spacer ring (Shimano free hub)

Our hubs are compatible with a wide variety of axle configurations. You can adapt your Scope wheels to nearly any frame of your choice by switching the end caps.
The maximum rider weight for the rim brake version is 95kg. There’s no weight limit for the disc brake version.
