An alloy-crafted value added proposition

Carbon fiber may be all the rage these days, but when it comes to engineering a premium ride characteristic and hitting desirable durability, weight and affordability targets, aluminum is still a very desirable material. The E5 alloy we use in the Control yields a stiff, dependable, and competitively light rim.

Trouble-free power transmission

Ride quality and durability were defining goals with the Control. Each wheel is hand built, with the centerpiece being our alloy hubs. They feature DT Swiss 360 internals for smooth, quick engagement and a long, trouble-free life.

Quality components, handbuilt attention to detail

In spite of the killer price tag, the Control gets all the attention to detail that is lavished upon our premium wheels. That means DT Swiss Revolution spokes and Pro Lock alloy nipples, built and tensioned by hand, every single wheel checked out thoroughly and carefully with an attention to detail that machines can’t match.

How we made it

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.

Systems approach
Systems approach

Roval wheels are engineered and built as an integrated whole. This “Systems Approach” delivers performance that can’t be achieved by designing a rim and sourcing third party parts for the rest. Example? We layup our rims and drill spoke holes precisely where and at precisely the angle that the nipple will interface with the rim, ensuring reliability and no creaking.
