What you're looking at here is gravity's nemesis: Roval's Control SL 29 Wheelset 148. At 1,330 grams, you'll climb XC courses with ease on these lightweight, hookless-bead, carbon hoops. They're built to withstand grunting up climbs, descending with abandon, and blasting in and out of corners with Specialized carbon rims, DT Swiss spokes, and DT Swiss's legendary 240 rear hub internals. The Boost spacing offers increased width on the front and rear hub flanges, and in turn, increased frame and fork clearance and stiffness. This combines to deliver a more durable wheel system at a minor weight penalty. Plus, these sweet race-ready wheels are tubeless-compatible so you are ready for anything that the trail throws at you.
With the edition of the 148mm rear and 110mm front axle widths, the Roval Traverse Fattie 29 148 mountain bike wheels have gone from nimble to downright stiff, traction machines.
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.
Rolf Prima's Carbon 58RSC Wheelset adds extra speed to every ride. They feature 58mm-deep carbon rims with an aluminum braking surface, giving you confident stopping power and world-class aerodynamics. Weighing in at 1,920 grams per pair and featuring Rolf's bladed, paired spoke design, the Carbon 58RSCs practically float across the tarmac.
Want to ride faster? Check out Rolf Prima's Echelons and feel the speed. These hand-built aero wheels feature blade-like 31mm-tall rims with 16 paired spokes in front and 20 in back for slippery aerodynamics. The Echelons are light enough (1,715 grams) to make training partners tremble and make you ponder why your "favorite" hill is suddenly easier. Plus, these wonder wheels are strong enough for daily training and boast an aluminum freehub body to keep the weight down.
