Rolf Prima Accel wheelset Substituion for Dahon Helios SL
Hello All! I have recently purchased a used Dahon 2005 Helios SL. However, the Rolf Prima™ Accel wheels did not comes with it? I understand the wheels are no longer in production from Dahon. Does anyone know where I get a lightweight substitution besides the Kinetix Pro S wheelset? Or would it be a good opportunity for go for 451mm wheelset? My goal is both lightweight & speed if possible.

Hi Iyen,

Is this the front wheel you require?

Thanks for the info Edd. But I am in the US & shipping cost is about $78 GBP as I have quoted a few days ago. Therefore, I have to keep looking.

Brakemeister, I agree with you that there is nothing wrong with the Kinetix Pro S wheel except that no one I know in the US sells the rear wheel. The only place I know that sells the front is I appreciate if you can locate both front & rear wheelset in black color. I am also consider a good set of 451mm wheel that is made for Bike Friday due to larger diameter for more rolling resistance. Thanks!

you are right I do have the front ones in stock and I do have rear ones on order from Dahon no idea when they arrive
