You've probably seen Rolf Prima's own complete wheels which have been a regular in the pro peloton since the early 2000's and while these are excellent wheels their proprietary hub system and lacing pattern were not for everyone.

With Astral however, Rolf have addressed this in creating a rim & wheel range that can be built with any regular hub, allowing much greater flexibility and customization to build the wheel that's right for you and your intended usage. To make things even more appealing Rolf's choice of hub for their factory built Astral wheels are White Industries excellent T11 and CLD hubs which we're already big fans of here at AVT thanks to their lightweight Ti freehub, great range of colors and great value for money.
