Red Passion 3 27,5

Never known to compromise, it sets the bar in terms of steering precision for such a light wheel.
Red Passion 3 is a very special wheel. All its components were designed and sized in synergy.
So materials, dimensions and tensions work together for maximum harmony.
This is what enables Red Passion 3 to make the difference when it comes to racing and fighting for victory – its natural environment.

The rim

The aluminum mtb rims have an ultra low, milled profile to keep the lowest peripheral weight possible, making the wheel extremely reactive. This specific shape also provides excellent impact resistance.
Asymmetric: the rim shape has been studied to improve the tensions, balancing the forces coming from the brakes and cassette.
Tubeless ready: over the time tubeless has been established as the preferred solution for the high-end wheels, as it ensures better handling and protection against punctures.
Red Passion 3 is ready for the transformation: thanks to a special contoured and reinforced rim profile that adheres more easily to the tire, while fitting is easy and safe.

The hubs

The hub bodies are made entirely of aluminum which combined with an oversized axle enhances both power transfer and reactivity. Sealed bearing help with stand the effects of use over time.
20mm axle: extremely lightweight – very high rigidity. Improves steering precision.


A solution that allows the mtb wheels to adapt to different standards on the market in a fast and simple way.
Different adapters can be fitted in a few easy steps to allow the mtb wheel to be fitted to any frame standard.

Spokes and nipples

Aluminum nipples: make it possible to reduce the peripheral mass of the mtb wheels to the minimum, thus increasing its reactivity.
