The Prologue Series is a series of budget-friendly, economical wheel builds. By utilizing a more automated layup process (which adds approximately 20 grams per rim), we are able to keep costs down to spec a wheelset that has incredible performance for half to one-third of the costs of premium models. The Prologue rims feature a hooked tire interface so you can use any tire brand at any pressure and not worry about the catastrophic tire blow-offs that a road hookless rim can suffer.
All Prologue series wheels come with the Skyuka hubs featuring 10-degree engagement and Abec 3 sealed cartridge bearings. The Skyuka rear hub is available in a Shimano Hyperglide or Sram XDR freehub body and requires no tools to swap between the different freehub body standards.
Built with Pillar Aero 1423 spokes and external brass nipples, the Prologue is built to be a great budget upgrade that can be used for everyday riding.
Prologue – It’s time to start something.
The 44mm Clincher Disc is the ideal blend of weight, aero gain, and crosswind stability. Our most popular wheel since 2015, the 44mm depth in disc brake makes its way to the Prologue series for an unrivaled price to performance ratio. At just 1675 grams this wheelset is equally at home on a mountain road, flying along the coast, or hammering your local group ride. If you need one wheelset to do it all, the 44mm disc is the wheelset for you.
In a word – everything. We have often said that the mid-depth 44mm clincher is an all-purpose wheelset. With the wide 19mm internal tubeless rim, you can comfortably run road tires in the 25mm to 32mm width. Gone are the days when you would need a heavy alloy wheel to ride every day and then swap to the fast wheels for special purpose. Use the special wheels every day, every ride, everywhere.
Chances are unless you spent multiple thousands of dollars on your bike, the wheels are lacking in quality. You’re not going to want to spend more on wheels than your bike, but you always want an upgrade. The Prologue 44mm clinchers will be that upgrade that will have the most impact on your bike’s performance and one you’ll enjoy every day.
