Having brought rim production to our Oregon facility in 2014, Astral expands into traditionally laced rims making the quality, craftsmanship, and ingenuity that Rolf Prima has long been known for available for all types of builds.
“When we made the investment to bring rim production to Oregon, we got immediate inquiries if we could make rims for other companies, but we were too busy building for the Rolf Prima line. Now that we have our feet under us, we are at the point where we can expand beyond making rims just for our own wheel systems.” said Brian Roddy, owner of Rolf Prima and Astral Cycling. “Over the last 20 years building Rolf Prima wheel systems we’ve found there to be a lot of inherent benefits with paired spokes, but we know not everyone wants a pre-built wheel system and some prefer to build it their own way. We’ve already done the engineering to make great rims and now we can share those rims for all wheel builds."
Astral is powered by the same team from Rolf Prima in Eugene, Oregon. Benefiting from years of knowledge, Astral’s rims are derived from the engineering and testing used by Rolf Prima. Rims will be available in traditional lacing patterns and will come in a variety of spoke hole configurations. Astral's line of rims include those for road, road plus, tandem, touring, cyclocross, gravel, adventure riding, cross-country, and all-mountain conditions.
