2018 Traverse Fattie

    • Description

      In the early design phases of our Traverse Fattie, we saw that the number of alloy wheels that could shred rowdy descents and climb efficiently were far and few between. We also knew that trail riders expect certain features in a send-it-ready wheelset, and for the price, we found that alloy hit the sweet spot.

Traverse Fattie

Trail Wheels for Riders, By Riders


You Wanted Wide, You Go It

We took the 23mm standard and moved it out to what worked best in testing, and this was the whopping 29mm internal width. It better supports the tire for increased traction & confidence, and allows the lowest possible tire pressures.

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 one-foot weak spot in the rim, and without it, we made stronger, lighter wheels with tighter tolerances.

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 15/20mm thru-axles. At the rear, you'll find 142 or 148 end caps and an 11-speed freehub that's compatible with SRAM XX1.

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.
