Red Metal 5

Red Metal 5

The Red Metal 5 is our new wheel designed specifically for trail and all mountain use.

From training to racing these wheels are the perfect companions for the most disparate situations, including downhills and technical sections, where resistance is key.

The new hubs share the same shell as the hubs used in the Red Zone Carbon and Red Zone 3. The differences are found in the axle and the bearings: in the Red Metal 5 we have used sealed, long-lasting and efficient bearings, which can be micro-adjusted with a specific adjustment ring.Red Metal 5 feature a 2-WAY FIT READY rim with a height of only 18.6 mm and a new asymmetrical section, which has been redesigned specifically to ensure the optimal balance of the spoke tension.

The width of the rim is wider compared to previous versions, so that they can be used with lower pressures, for improved grip and control in the most extreme conditions.

A tone-on tone design, with a partly glossy and partly matt finish, wraps the rim profile around the valve area, whilst the traditional red box, with the logo, can be found on the opposite side of the rim.
