CLX 64 Disc Wheel
Roval has been advocating for wider rims for years now, well before their popularity boomed as it has among other high-end manufacturers. They understood that a wider rim, and therefore a wider tire, supported a harmonic balance of rolling resistance, weight, and aerodynamics while running lower tire pressures for superior traction and control. Though it would be easy for the California-based brand to sit on the shoulders of their parent company, Specialized, Roval has instead released the CLX 64 Disc Wheel, which they've dubbed "the fastest spoked wheel in the world."
The CLX 64 is designed to induce less drag than most 80mm-deep wheels, and it weighs a half pound less than many of its aero competitors. The 64mm depth is engineered to produce less steering torque and more speed, making it a useful wheel on hills and sprints. At the heart of the CLX 64 are the AF1 (Aero Flange) hubs that feature an elegant shape and sleek styling. The hubs have been aerodynamically optimized with wider bracing angles for increased strength and refined precision, and feature CeramicSpeed bearings laced to DT Swiss Aerolite T-headed spokes which test faster than round spokes in the wind tunnel.
The CLX wheelset lineup features three aerodynamic profiles in 32, 50, and 64mm depths, each of which come with benefits all their own. At the upper end of the spectrum, the 64s are quick to accelerate, eager to maneuver, and extremely versatile despite their depth.
