Call us obsessive but in cross country racing we know that every gram counts. That’s why the Roval Control SL 29 wheels place a strict focus on competitive XC racing meaning that they deliver in the weight stiffness and durability departments. To do so they’re hand-built on ultralight and incredibly stiff carbon rims that are manufactured with a Zero Bead Hook design. This design pairs perfectly with tubeless tyres while also increasing both strength and impact-resistance. Meanwhile the rims have been laced via DT Swiss Revolution spokes to strong alloy hubs with DT Swiss 240 internals (rear only) that serve-up lightening-fast engagement and acceleration.
