The Details

Meet the new Rapide CLX II - The aerodynamics of a deep section TT wheel and the weight of a shallower climbing wheel, this wheelset delivers maximum speed in real-world riding.

The Roval Rapide CLX II Carbon Front Road Wheel combines aerodynamic excellence with light weight and great handling. This wheel excels in climbing performance, has slippery efficiency of a dedicated aero setup, and stable confident handling, regardless of wind conditions. The CLX II utilises a hooked rim for a more secure bead retention and an easier tyre mounting experience than ever before.

The new AeroFlange hubs have been heavily aerodynamically optimised along with increased strength and reduced spoke weight. They also benefit from increased strength of ceramic SINC bearings and the unparalleled durability of a DT Swiss’ EXP freehub.

  • Tubeless ready
  • Hooked rim
  • 100x12mm [F] & 142x12mm [R] thru axle

Our Verdict

The second generation of the Rapide CLX, reach maximum speed regardless of the conditions.
