Specialized Roval Traverse 29 Carbon 6B - Front

5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

The new Traverse 29 Carbon wheelset from specialized are perfect for even the toughest of trails that you can throw at them. They are incredibly strong while still being very light to get you to the top of any climb. This wheel set inclues a hookless bead continuous fiber layup across the sidewall and rim bed. And when paired with a whopping 30-millimeter internal rim width, they made a wheel that's super resilient to impact with low rolling resistance and incredible traction. We now use 28 J-bend spokes, for front and rear wheels, that are all the same length—making it easy to find replacements if needed. And finally, we engineered a new hub design with a wider profile and higher flange to aid in overall stiffness. Inside, you'll find sealed cartridge bearings and a 36t quick engagement ratchet system for quick accelerations. All wheels are hand built to spot any imperfections that machines might miss. 

Each wheelset comes packaged with a SRAM XD driver, 11-speed freehub, and a tubeless valve stem in order to make tubeless set up a touch easier. *Please note that Shimano freehubs are sold separately.

The carbon rims have an inner width of 30mm and use a hookless bead design. Those rims are built around 28-hole DT Swiss 350 hubs, with a 36-tooth rachet ring in place in the rear. The wheels come pre-taped, and tubeless valve stems are included, which makes setup a cinch. The 29” version tested here weighed in at 1840 grams, retails for $1,200 USD, and comes with a lifetime warranty..
