Traverse SL 29in Carbon Boost Wheelset
If you're the type of rider that can't simply have a double-scoop waffle cone, but needs the cocoa shavings and syrup on top too, then the top-tier Roval Traverse SL 29in Carbon Boost Wheelset complements your more-is-more mentality. The all-mountain Traverse SL takes the top step on the podium by reducing overall weight by 65 grams compared to the mid-range Traverse Carbon and rotating smoothly around the DT Swiss 240 freehub.
Roval's Step Flange hub body is key to having incremental improvements make for race-defining moments. By slightly offsetting the spokes' set-in positioning, Roval manages "subtle wizardry" to improve the bracing angles and reduce overall spoke fatigue during your trail sessions. Still, to keep things simple, Roval maintains the use of DT Swiss' Competition J-Bend spokes for their reliable riding history and convenient serviceability at nearly any local bike shop.
As you're smashing out of apexes or railing long undulating straights setting up for the next drop-point, the DT Swiss' 54 engagement points keep you closely connected to your pedals, meaning you can get on the gas quickly after coasting. And the addition of the SRAM XD driver helps you keep that critical 10-tooth cog on the bike for top-speed descending.
Roval's top-notch lifetime warranty and crash-replacement policy add even more satisfying layers. And the Traverse SL comes with tubeless valves for quick setup.
