Fattie, big-boned—titles aside, just think of Roval's Traverse SL 29 mountain bike wheels as wide. The reason is behind this simple: With a wide, 30mm internal carbon rim, these wheels dramatically increase both stability and traction, which all boils down to more control. The extra width allows for more tire volume, which means more suppleness in the ride quality. And not only this, but the ample width also better supports the tire, meaning that you'll experience less "burping" when riding tubeless. These wheels also include the Roval tubeless plug system, which is an easy and super lightweight solution for tubeless setups. At the front hub, you'll get a thru-axle design with 15/20mm compatibility (end cap options included), and at the rear, the hub features DT Swiss internals for lightning-quick engagement and acceleration. And to top everything off, these wheels are hand-built to ensure a painstaking attention to detail.
The incredibly light, extra-wide carbon fiber rims of Roval's Traverse SL Fattie 650B wheels let you scale the climbs and push the limits on the downs. Up or down, the 30mm internal rim width supports tire sidewalls better for increased volume, allowing lower pressures, more grip, less air burping, and a ride that feels like your bike gained an extra inch of travel. The sealed bearing hubs roll smooth as the terrain around you gives way to the blur. Connected, responsive, incredible. An entire vocabulary lesson of adjectives cloud your thoughts as you shove these stiff, wide hoops into a corner and they launch you out all the while begging for more. Momentarily, you sever your bond with gravity for the sweet sensation of floating. Upon touch down, solid, dependable, awesome rush into your mind. These words resound as you resume your connection to the soil, feel the quick engagement of the DT Swiss hub internals and rip on the pedals.
