Rolf Prima has released another limited edition of their Vigor wheels, this time for standard road bikes. Last month it was the Vigor FX for track bikes, and this January it’s the Vigor Alpha road wheels.
Their best selling model, the Vigor Alpha comes in at just 1450g with their 33mm deep rim. These special edition ones add two more spokes to the front and come in at 1510g for the pair. Rolf’s folks told us the extra spokes (which is the same count they use on their Vigor Alpha tubulars, BTW) ads just a bit more stiffness and gives them a slightly differentiated look beyond color.
Rim width is 22mm, and they include the usual premium features like Enduro ceramic bearings, titanium freehub body and bladed Sapim CX Ray spokes.
Decals are a muted gray. The rims are extruded and wheels built in house in their Eugene, OR, headquarters.
Retail is$1,399 per set, a $100 premium over the standard black anodized model.
