Roval CLX 50 Tubeless Ready Disc Brake Clincher Rear Wheel
The Roval CLX 50 Tubeless Ready Disc Brake Clincher Rear Wheel may be more familiar in gold lacquer to disciples of Slovakian cycling sensation Peter Sagan. Although that gold version may be off charts to rainbow-less jerseys, this wheel is certainly one that can feature on your high-end road machine. This version made specifically for disc brake road bikes features the very latest technology in order to provide world-class and world-beating performances.
Weighing a spritely 770 grams, this tubeless ready rear wheel is made entirely of high-grade carbon fibre, and features an internal rim width of 20.7mm and an external rim width of 29.4mm. Hand built to rigorous specifications and for use exclusively with disc brake, this rear wheel is built around a Roval ADFD2 rear hub that features CeramicSpeed bearings and DT Swiss 240 internals for supreme engagement and reduced friction, all the while, housing an 11-speed cassette.
Making good use of a 50mm rim depth, the Roval CLX 50 Tubeless Disc Brake Rear Wheel is optimised for aerodynamic performance out on the road, making use as it does of SDT Swiss Aerolite T-head spokes arranged in a one-cross/two-cross pattern, making for an overall count of 24. This said, aerodynamic compliance in no way is set to hinder the rigidity of these wheels. Cited by Roval themselves as offering "quiver killer" design, this luxury rear wheel makes the job of spinning up and slamming down the power a joy, eliminating the feel lateral movement in the wheel, and allowing you to put all your effort into forging ahead.
Supplied as standard with a Roval padded wheel bag, a Roval Steel QR, Roval tubeless plugs, tubeless valve and a 142x12mm thru-axle plus QR end cap, this rear wheel is one of the finest ever to be produced by the Roval team, and is likely to taste success carrying the rainbow jersey to victory this year.
