The Roval CLX 32 front wheel is one of the lightest carbon clinchers ever made, but this doesn't come at the expense of fundamental performance. Instead, painstaking engineering and lab testing helped us achieve a 550-gram wheel that's tough enough for cyclocross racing, yet light enough for the demands of a GC climber. The low inertia and ample stiffness help the wheel accelerate and change direction on a dime.
We didn't skimp on aerodynamic benefits either, despite this wheel's low rim profile. The CLX 32 was engineered in CFD around a 26mm tire shape, and honed in our very own Win Tunnel, in order to be as aerodynamic as some rims almost twice its depth. Meanwhile, the tubeless compatible, 21mm wide inner rim width better supports a tire for increased comfort and stability in corners and on descents.
Lastly, the wheel's Roval aero hubs and CeramicSpeed bearings to complete the speedy ensemble. Truly, the CLX 32 ushers in a new era of lightweight performance road wheels.
