Traverse Alloy

Hungry for the trail. Easy on the wallet.

Starting at: $300.00

Durability and precision

The Traverse rim is extruded from our E5 aluminum alloy, meaning it is tough enough to handle backcountry rock gardens and questionable line choices at the bike park with confidence. It features a good and wide 30mm internal width, making it ideal for providing modern wide tires with enough support to corner and jump with precision, minimizing tire roll and squirmy deformation.

Reliability and serviceability front and center

Our Roval hub shell is stuffed with the NEW DT Swiss 370 LN hub internals. Sealed bearings, fast engaging freehub, trouble-free performance, and easy maintenance are at the core of the Traverse.

Elegant utility

Tried and true DT Swiss Competition J-bend spokes lace the rims to the hubs. 28 of them per wheel. Same length spokes for both sides of each wheel, same length front and rear. Solid stuff, unlikely to creak or corrode or fail. Easy to replace if you happen to jam a stick through the spokes (this is mountain biking; these things happen sometimes). Durable, serviceable, hassle-free.

Handbuilt
Handbuilt

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.

Solid modeling
Solid modeling

Before they ever exist in the physical world, every Roval component from hub to rim to complete wheel assembly is designed as a “solid model” and optimized using Finite Element Analysis. This allows our engineers to rapidly advance their designs before committing to the laborious process of building prototypes.
