Frequently Asked Questions

General

Roval wheelsets with carbon rims are designed for a maximum rider weight of 240lbs (109kg). Our alloy wheelsets, however, do not have a weight limit.

All Roval wheels are designed and tested as a system. This allows us to tune each wheelset specifically for the intended ride experience and deliver the highest quality wheels. For this reason, we do not offer individual components for sale.

Roval Road Wheels

Our newest generation of wheels, the CLX 32, 50, and 64, are all tubeless compatible. The SLX 24 models are also tubeless compatible. The previous generation CL(X) 40 and 60 models are not tubeless compatible. All of our tubeless compatible road models are designed to work with Roval tubeless plugs.

The wider CL(X) 32, 50, and 64 are compatible with tires between 22-47C. The previous CL(X) 40 and 60 models are compatible with tires up to 38C. Note that many Roval road wheels have a larger inner width than traditional road rims. Most road tires end up about 2mm wider on these wheels than on a traditional road wheel.

The wider CL(X) 32, 50, and 64 are compatible with tires between 22-47C. The previous CL(X) 40 and 60 models are compatible with tires up to 38C.

Current Roval road wheels use rear hubs with 240- and 350-based DT Swiss internals. Shimano 11-speed, Shimano 9-/10-speed, SRAM XD, and Campagnolo freehub bodies are available from your local Roval dealer. Stock DT Swiss replacement freehub parts are also compatible with the rear wheels. Please direct questions for specific part numbers to support@rovalcomponents.com

SCS is a system developed by Specialized Bicycle Components to ensure an ideal chainline and crisp shifting on disc brake road bikes with short chainstays. Wheels with SCS hubs move the cassette inboard (closer to the center of the bike). Select Roval models – CL(X) 40 and CLX 64 – are available with SCS rear hubs for use on certain Specialized Tarmac, Roubaix, Diverge, and CruX Disc models. Endcaps are available to use these wheels in both QR and SCS thru-axle configurations.

Our current generation CL(X) 32, 40, 50, and 64 wheels, along with SLX 24 disc wheels, are compatible with traditional QR and thru-axle configurations. In the front, this is 9x100mm QR and 12x100mm thru-axle. In the rear, this is 9x135mm QR and 12x142mm thru-axle. The end caps for these configurations all ship with each aftermarket wheel.

We have partnered with Swiss Stop and optimized our brake tracks for their Black Prince brake pads. These brake pads are available for Shimano/SRAM and Campagnolo configurations, and they're easy to find at either your local bike shop or online. Use of a brake pad other than the Swiss Stop Black Prince or the Roval “Red” pads will void your warranty and can be unsafe.

Roval Mountain Wheels

Roval mountain bike wheels use rear hubs with 240-, 350-, and 360-based DT Swiss internals. A full range of Shimano and SRAM XD drivers are available from your local Roval dealer. DT Swiss replacement freehub parts are also compatible with the rear wheels. *Please direct questions for specific part numbers to support@rovalcomponents.com.

All Roval wheel small parts are available through your local Roval dealer. For technical questions please contact support@rovalcomponents.com.

The spoke lengths and type vary by wheel. Please contact your local dealer or support@rovalcomponents.com, and we'll get you sorted.

This depends on a ton of variables. Trail type and conditions, rider weight and style, tire casing, and internal rim width all play a part in choosing the proper combination. As a general baseline, we recommend the following: 22mm internal rim width – 2.0 - 2.3” tire; 29-30mm internal rim width – 2.3 - 3.0” tire; 38mm internal rim width – 2.6 - 3.0” tire

Current generation Traverse SL and Traverse 38 SL Fattie wheels (all wheel diameters and hub spacing types) are compatible with the plugs.

Roval mountain bike wheelsets are sold in pairs. Our wheels are available in 100mm front and 135/142mm rear sets or 110mm front and 148mm rear sets. We also offer a full range of adaptor kits that allow 100mm and 135/142mm wheels to be converted to 110mm and 148mm spacing. Our hubs can also be easily converted to a range of axle types depending on the wheel. For questions about your specific setup please contact support@rovalcomponents.com.

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 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.
