Rolf Prima Wheel Systems hand builds wheels one-at-a time in Eugene Oregon. Rolf Prima fits with the Métier Vélo ethos of building by hand, one-at-a time, using US-sourced parts. You can recognize Rolf Prima wheels by their distinctive paired spoke design. The company, owned by Brian Roddy, is a reincarnation of the original Rolf Prima , which died due to the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent retirement of founder Rolf Dietrich. Each Rolf Prima wheel comes with a card signed by the individual who built it. Rolf Prima wheels are built around their proprietary hubs, most of which are manufactured in the US. The rear hubs feature Differential Flange Diameter to transfer driving forces and a Dish-Reducing Design to further strengthen the rear wheel.
