Product Details

Roval Rapide CLX 40 Wheelset

Slice through the wind on Roval's Rapide CLX 40 Wheelset. They feature 40mm-tall aero rims, DT Swiss Revolution straight-pull spokes laced to Roval hubs with DT Swiss star ratchet internals. The wide, carbon rim provides a round tire profile and greater lateral stiffness for precise handling. This feathery, 1396 gram wheelset spins up with ease so you can bolt out of corners and breeze up the climbs. And, with sealed ceramic cartridge bearings, these wheels roll as smooth as glass.

    Comments:

    Excellent all round aero wheelset that is nearly unaffected in crosswinds. Braking is superb and very quiet with the supplied brake pads. The most impressive feature may be how smooth the wheelset is, chip seal, cracks no problem, these wheels soak it up. Five stars on stiffness too as these wheels climb and sprint exceptional.
