Control SL 29

  • Description

    Ask Jaroslav Kulhavý, and he'll tell you—every gram counts in XC. But with XC tracks getting more aggressive, being a flyweight wheel is no longer sufficient. Now, wheels need to be as tough and stiff as they are light, with all the handling that seasoned XC riders have come to expect. These days, wheels need to be more like the Control SL 29.

Wider, Tougher, and Faster than Ever


Lighter is Faster

At a svelte 1370g per set, these wheels maintain an extremely low inertia, so they're incredibly lively, allowing you to accelerate or change direction with less effort and more stability.

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 QR/15mm compatible. At the rear, you'll find 142 end caps and an 11-speed freehub that's compatible with SRAM XX1. 142 drive-side end caps are included for Shimano freehubs (freehub sold separately).

Quality Hubs

Our objective of lightweight reliability at a good price also carries into the build. We hand-build each rim to our alloy hubs, which feature DT Swiss 240 internals at the rear, via perfectly tensioned DT Swiss Revolution spokes and Pro Lock nipples.

Lightweight Strength

A 22mm internal profile makes it resilient to impact and creates a tire profile that’s conducive to low rolling resistance and incredible traction. Even better, we did this while keeping the weight at around 1,370g per set.

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.
