While the CLX 32 rim is the lightest and most aero in its category, there's much more to it than that. It's a durable, 2Bliss Ready, and wide-profiled carbon rim that's ready to take on any adventure.
Because of this, we developed the CLX 32 650b Disc wheelset. We wanted to create a super-light wheel that plays nice with big 650b tires-one that could also be used to take on anything from pavement to gravel to trails.
When you want to get rowdy, swap out the 700c wheels on your gravel bike with these wheels, mount up some 650bX~47c tires, and get ready for next-level capability; all while retaining excellent handing thanks to constant frame geometry and fork-trail.
And yes, while many opt to use mountain bike wheels for this application, there are clear advantages to choosing the CLX 32 650b Disc.
First off, while most mountain wheels have hubs that are convertible to various axle standards, not many are convertible to the 12mm road thru-axle standard. Secondly, mountain wheels often come with either a SRAM XD driver, a Shimano 11-speed mountain, or 10-speed road freehub, making them incompatible with contemporary 11-speed road cassettes. And lastly, most mountain wheels use standard six-bolt disc brake hubs, rather than the Center Lock hubs found on most road applications.
Finally, the 21mm internal rim width pairs well with 650b tires, delivering the tire profile that delivers confidence in the corners and great floatation in the rough stuff. Learn More

Performance Doesn't Get Any Lighter than This
A Wider Design
21mm internal rim width performs three primary functions—it provides added structural strength, creates a clean rim/tire interface for enhanced aerodynamics and faster rolling properties, and it better supports the tire during hard cornering.
We tested over 40 layups & 150 individual rims in order to improve strength. The rims also use our Aero Flange hubs with wide bracing angles, so we're able to reduce spoke weight while keeping the lateral stiffness and durability of the of CLX 40s.
Having our own Win Tunnel means we can take CFD models and test them till we get the best design. This left us with a 32mm-deep shape with more tunnel time than any wheel in its category. More importantly, it's eight seconds faster than the CLX 40.
Lively Handling & Feel
Most of the weight savings is from the rim, so there's a 10% reduction in inertia compared to the CLX 40. And the lower inertia makes the wheels incredibly lively, allowing you to accelerate or change direction with less effort and more stability.
Roval padded wheelbag, Roval steel quick-release, Roval tubeless plugs, Roval tubeless valve, 142x12mm thru-axle end caps, and quick-release end caps.
Tubeless Plug System
Lightweight tubeless plugs easily snap into place and seal each spoke hole individually. Every wheel ships with these and an alloy valve stem, so there's no added cost for a tubeless setup.

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 STIKRD.com 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.
