Millimeters that matter

The tubeless ready, 21mm internal width of the CLX 32 is optimized for use with modern, wider tires, providing them with the right amount of sidewall support to facilitate surefooted handling in all conditions. At a depth of 32mm, after exhaustive wind tunnel testing, this superlight road rim offers lively climbing and all-round performance, but aerodynamically outperforms many deeper, aero-specific rims.

Refinement through design

In order to achieve our weight and durability goals for the CLX 32, we burned through a massive pile of prototypes. Over 40 different layups were developed, and a staggering 143 rim prototypes were built and tested before we reached the final design. The result is one of the lightest road wheelsets on the market, a climber’s dream wheel, but one that also happens to be tough enough and durable enough to serve as a cyclocross workhorse.

Faster, stronger hubs

The Aero Flange hubs found on each CLX 32 wheelset are the basis of fast, strong, light wheel. Aerodynamically optimized, with wide-bracing angles for increased strength and reduced spoke weight, they also feature ultra-smooth CeramicSpeed bearings and the refined precision of DT Swiss 240 freehub internals.

How we made it

Systems approach
Systems approach

We engineer and build our wheels as an integrated whole to deliver performance that can’t be achieved by designing a rim and then sourcing third party parts for the rest. Example? We layup the CLX 32 rims and drill spoke holes at precisely the angle the nipple will interface with the rim, ensuring reliability and the lightest weight possible.

There's no substitute for the hands-on experience and meticulous attention to detail that a human being brings to the craft of wheel building. While many wheels on the market are built by machines, Roval wheels are always built by people: from lacing the hubs, to equalizing spoke tension, to truing the wheel to lateral and radial perfection.
