Is there a weight limit for Scope wheels?

Scope wheels have been thoroughly tested in all areas of road cycling. With field-testing on different terrains and lab tests for brake performance, the maximum rider weight for all Scope Rim Brake wheels has been defined at a point of 95kg. No weight limit applies to all Scope disc brake wheels.

Why are scope wheels build with exposed nipples?

Due to the unique shape of our rim, external nipples have the same amount of drag as internal nipples at all wind angles. This allows us to keep the nipples external for ease of wheel maintenance without compromising on aerodynamics.

Are Scope wheels 11spd compatible?

Yes. All Scope wheels are compatible with 11spd derailleurs. In addition, all Scope wheels are also compatible with 9spd and 10spd derailleurs, using a spacer ring that comes with the wheels.

Does Scope offer campagnolo compatible freehubs?

Yes. Scope offers 9spd, 10spd, and 11spd compatible freehubs for all available wheelsets.

Can I also use other than the Scope brake pads on my Scope wheels?

No, you can’t. Scope brake pads are developed in combination with the brake surface of our carbon rims, thus making them the ideal brake pads for Scope wheels.

The Scope brake pads will ensure maximum braking power and heat resistance under extreme conditions. By not using Scope brake pads when running Scope wheels you’ll void the warranty of the wheels.

In addition, it’s recommended to keep the brake pads used for alloy rims separate from the ones used on carbon rims to avoid alloy splinters. Alloy splinters can scratch the carbon and may likely damage the fibers of your Scope wheel(s).

How do I choose the correct tire width?

The tire width highly depends on user preference and conditions. In general we recommend a tire width of 25mm for optimal aerodynamics, rolling resistance and comfort.
