CLX 50


  • Description

    After the success of both our CLX 64 and 32s, we knew that the best option was to continue to expand our wheel range. And while the 64s are the fastest wheels we've ever tested, and the 32s have the best combination of aerodynamics and weight, we needed one wheel to be a true quiver killer—and that’s where the CLX 50 comes in.

CLX 50

An Aero Climber for Every Terrain



[center]


Wider is Faster

The 20.7mm internal width is perfectly suited to wider tires and lower pressure, which creates a notable aero relationship and significant decreases in rolling resistance.


Optimized for Every Ride

A shallow wheel might be your go-to when it's windy, but our 50s test faster in all wind situations. They're designed to place the center of pressure where the wheel sits behind the steering axis, so it's exceptionally predictable in crosswinds.


Superior Construction

In 2016 alone, the CLX 50 underwent thousands of kilometers of fatigue testing, so yeah, they're reliable. Not only that, but they're light—200 grams lighter than the closest competition. All praise be to high-modulus carbon, brilliant engineers, and coffee.




No Detail Too Small

We chose our AF hubs that feature legendary CeramicSpeed bearings, and hand laced them to with DT Swiss Aerolite bladed spokes, which test faster than their round counterparts in the wind tunnel.


Hand-Built Quality

Humans catch mistakes that machines can’t, like damaged spokes and bends, which is why we choose professionally trained humans to hand-build all of our wheels.


Accouterments

Each CLX 50 wheel employs legendary comes with a padded wheelbag, quick-release(s), tubeless plugs, tubeless valve(s), and *SwissStop Black Prince brake pads.

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.
