Pros & Cons
Pros & Cons
- The low weight of only 1557 grams, in combination with the 45 mm high rim, makes the Scope R4D wheels a very good all-round wheel set.
- Thanks to the pre-assembled tubeless rim tape you can make the wheels tubeless in a jiffy, this ensures more comfort, a lower rolling resistance, and higher puncture resistance.
- The high lateral stiffness converts every pedal stroke to pure acceleration during a long climb or sprint so you avoid wasting energy.
- Scope offers an extended 3 year warranty period and crash replacement program.
- Scope wheels are developed in the Netherlands in cooperation with Schwalbe, SKF, TU Eindhoven and TU Delft; for a high quality product.
- Scope wheels attract a lot of attention while on the road. Don't be surprised if curious cyclists come have a look at your wheels.
- Scope R4D wheels don't come with wheel bags.

No noncence wielen
Geweldige wielen, overstap paar maanden gelden gemaakt. Eerste ritjes in de regen, goed om de remmen te testen
Weinig zijwind gevoelig
Goede remweg bij nat weer
Wielrennen in een andere dimensie
Ik heb deze wielen gekocht in maart 2019 als upgrade van mijn Scott Foil 30. Ondertussen hebben ze een intensief seizoen achter de rug en ik ben meer dan tevreden. De wielen zijn stijf en licht maar tegelijkertijd comfortabeler dan de originele aluminium DT Swiss wielen waar ik op reed, wat het fietsen een waar genot maakt. Mijn complimenten aan de mannen van Scope!
Mindere remcapaciteit dan met aluminium wielen
Solid and snappy!
It's hard to say that bike wheels for 1400 Euro are worth the money. But if you're ready to take the plunge and are looking for medium high carbon wheels, these are GREAT! I was so close to buying 404's but decided to try these instead. Coming from FFWD F6R I'm used to a certain carbon-hum when riding and seriously low weight (FFWD tubs at 1350g). These don't sound much at all and are slightly heavier, but nothing that you notice even when climbing. I really like how agile and responsive they feel on both climbs and in the peloton. Sure, the freehub-sound is not the most exciting one, if that matters to you. But they perform really good and feel very solid yet light on the bike. ps. The brand distributor that I spoke to before buying these was very proud of the fact that they haven't had one failing rim or hub since they started selling Scope Wheels.
Brand strength not even close to Zipp/Enve

Detailed product descriptionHigh lateral stiffness
Scope wheels are built as a system, as a result the geometry of the hubs are optimised to create a very high stiffness while keeping an equal spoke tension. The extra wide flange distance in combination with the wide full carbon rim results in a very high lateral stiffness. So no more brake rub when pushing your pedals, instead all your energy is converted into speed.
Aero and tubeless
Computational Fluid Dynamics are used to reduce the impact of air resistance and crosswinds from all angles, making them perform better than other brands. The tyre bed of the rim is optimised for tubeless tyres while being compatible with all clincher tyres. The internal width of the rim is 19 mm, when mounting a 25 mm tyre the actual tyre diameter will become 26 mm, so they fit perfectly on the braking surfaces.
The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, Holland, helped Scope to optimise the carbon structure in order to optimise the strength and rigidity of the Scope wheels. Together they have further developed the local reinforcement technology, with which they have reduced the weight of all their racing and mountain bike rims.
Durability is key to the lifespan of a hub. To protect the bearings from dirt and water, Scope has developed its own system. The axle end caps completely seal the hubs alongside the seals that seal the bearings themselves. Scope uses industrial SKF bearings. This helps to optimise the durability of the hubs.
3 Year Warranty
Quality is number 1 at Scope. After registering the wheelset on the website of Scope , within 30 days after purchase, you activate the 3-year warranty period. When registering your wheelset it is necessary to state the serial number. This can be found on the registration card supplied, the wheel box or on the rim bed.
Crash Replacement Program
Despite the high quality, a Scope wheelset is not always resistant to the effects of a black fall. Therefore, in addition to the 3-year warranty period, Scope offers a crash replacement program. Scope gives you the opportunity to replace the wheel after a crash at a reduced rate.
Additional informationCycling News
"The Scope R5 disc wheels are designed for day-to-day wear and tear mileage and a 3-year warranty is standard. They are more than one of the fastest options in the segment - lightweight and rigid, offering all the qualities of the more famous players at a lower price."
"The laboratory's results and riding impressions are compelling. In addition, the wheels impress with their appearance." "Overall, the wheels leave a great impression, a promising debut from a young Dutch brand."
"Although I would not classify these R4d wheels specifically for cyclocross (neither does Scope), the wheelset seems to obscure the categorisation. In addition, they follow the No Excuse label from Scope. During the three seasons we used them, they cruised each road that we encountered without problems. And in combination with the serious and reliable Pro One Tubeless tires, we intend to continue to increase the number of smiley kilometers on different surfaces. "
"With the Scope wheels, your bike becomes more beautiful, you ride lighter and you are more aerodynamic. In short, an increase in morale and speed. You don't have to doubt the strength of carbon fiber even when riding through a pit."
"As for the R4c wheel, Scope certainly keeps its word: quality, rigidity, well-thought-out design and very fine handling make up the core of the wheel set. The wheels work very well with crosswinds and offer excellent braking - even on wet roads - and its functional all-round wheel for all types of terrain and weather conditions.
"Really impressive in this segment." "Top figures for durability, very impressive." "The build quality is excellent, the rim is strong and robust, and the oak tension has only been good during this extensive test." Choices in the carbon fiber clincher market, making an informed choice is difficult. These wheels value well on the important criteria that a carbon fiber wheel must have: build quality, aerodynamics and braking performance.
