Control 29

    • Description

      When you think of XC wheels, alloy probably doesn't come to mind. But in reality, high-end alloy wheels have all of the performance properties found in carbon wheels, like light weight, durability, and impact resistance. And when made with the right hands, like the Control 29, they're perfect for competitive racers and everyday trail riders alike.

The Future of Alloy


Zero Bead Hook

We removed the dated bead hook—the part of the rim that crests at the top, sitting inward from the rim’s sidewall. They create a weak spot in the rim, and without it, we made stronger, lighter wheels.

2Bliss Ready

These wheels are set-up to be tubeless-ready out of the box, so you can run lower pressures for added traction while nearly eliminating the threat of pinch flats.

The Nitty Gritty Details

The front hub is designed for 15mm thru-axles, while a 28mm end cap option is included. At the rear, you'll find 135 QR / 142mm thru-axle end cap options. It's compatible with SRAM 11-speed cassettes, but this freehub is sold separately.

Quality Hubs

Our objective of lightweight reliability at a good price carries into the build. We hand-build each rim to our alloy hubs, which feature DT Swiss 360 internals at the rear, via perfectly tensioned DT Swiss Revolution spokes and Pro Lock nipples.

Custom Decals

Good news: We've partnered with STIKRD, which means that we're proud to introduce custom Roval decals. Our partnership started when we saw what these guys were doing, and how rad they were making bikes look with our wheels and custom decals. We know we're not alone in our love to make our bikes look rad, and STIKRD helps us do just that.

How does it work? Just follow the link over to and select the Roval wheelset that you have. Design your own decals, and then hang tight for a couple of days while they're printed and delivered to your doorstep. It’s that easy.
