Long live alloy!
The E5 alloy used in the SLX 24 is notable for its exceptional elongation characteristics. This translates to aluminum that can be more precisely and extensively extruded to its final shape while retaining impressive strength at minimal weight. It makes for a rim that can handle severe abuse in real-world conditions without leaving you stranded.
Wide rims for wide tires, the way of the future
Wider tires roll faster, and are more comfortable, than narrow tires. The tubeless ready, 20mm internal width of the SLX 24 is optimized for use with modern, wider tires, providing them with the right amount of sidewall support to facilitate surefooted handling in all conditions.
Premium quality hubs and spokes
With two main goals in mind—long life and easy serviceability—we looked to Switzerland. The SLX 24 uses an ultra-reliable, rapid engagement DT 350 star-ratchet freehub for smooth power transmission and long-term dependability. Similarly, DT Swiss Competition spokes were chosen to lace hub to rim, and finished with brass Pro-Lock nipples.
Lightweight and tubeless ready
Total wheelset weight is 1515 grams, which is a mighty respectable weight for a wheelset that excels everywhere from training rides to ‘cross races. The tubeless ready design ensures hassle-free setup and trouble-free riding.

Tire pressure recommendations
The right tire pressure for your ride is personal and depends on your riding style, the terrain you'll be riding, and the conditions of that terrain on the day you're riding. What you see below is a recommended starting point, a "ballpark." You'll also see a decal on your wheels indicating max pressure. Never exceed the max pressure. Enjoy your ride!

How we made it
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.
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? By controlling the rim design, hub, lacing pattern, and spoke count, we drill spoke holes at precisely the angle the nipple will interface with the rim, ensuring the SLX 24’s reliability and the lightest weight possible.
