Description of Specialized Roval CLX 32 28 Inch - Front Wheel - Clincher - QR - carbon/gloss black

When Specialized set out to create a lightweight wheelset, they didn’t want it to be “just another climbing wheel." Specialized wanted to provide the lightest wheelset out there with the aerodynamic attributes of something twice its depth. One wheel that'll get you to the base of a climb quickly and up it as efficiently as possible, yet still be strong enough for day-to-day abuse.

Specialized Roval CLX 32 features:

  • Rim Type: Carbon clincher, 2Bliss Ready
  • Rim Material: Carbon
  • Braking Surface: Carbon fibre
  • Brake Track Height: 12mm
  • Rim Depth: 32mm
  • Rim Width: 20.7mm internal
  • Spoke Pattern: Radial
  • Spoke Count: 16
  • Spoke Type: DT Swiss Aerolite T-head
  • Nipple Type: DT Swiss Pro Lock hexagonal
  • Front Hub: Roval AF1, CeramicSpeed bearings
  • Assembly Method: Hand-built
  • Extras: Roval padded wheelbag, Roval steel quick-release, Roval tubeless plugs and tubeless valve, SwissStop Black Prince brake pads

The design process started with a low overall weight at the forefront, as Specialized knew what weight they could hit with the information and technology they had available. With that weight in mind, Specialized then turned their focus to aerodynamics and began an iterative process of designing and testing over 150 individual rims to find the optimal shape. These innumerable Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models, Win Tunnel hours, and shots of espresso left them with a 32mm-deep shape that boasts more logged wind tunnel time than any other wheel in its category.

Once Specialized found the most aerodynamic shape, at the 32-millimter depth, they came back to the weight focus and proceeded to experiment with over 40 different layup methods to reach the desired weight. And this made the CLX 32 lighter and faster than every other competitor in the lightweight wheel category.

For the CLX 32 clincher front, Specialized mated the rim to the Aero Flange (AF) series hub with DT Swiss Aero spokes in order to create the best overall wheel system. This resulted in a 553-gram, 21mm-wide (internal width) front wheel with an extremely low inertia value. In cycling, inertia relates to the amount of force it takes to accelerate or decelerate, so wheels that are built with lightweight rims, like the CLX 32, result in a lower inertia value that creates a lively wheel that allows you to accelerate, decelerate, and change direction with less effort. But why so wide? Well, additional width does three primary things for a rim—it provides additional structural strength, it allows for a clean rim and tire interface when using wide tires (resulting in enhanced aerodynamics and faster rolling properties), and it better supports the tire in hard cornering. This boosts both predictable grip and confidence when things get twisty on the descents.

Each CLX 32 clincher front wheel also employs the legendary CeramicSpeed bearings and comes with a padded wheelbag, quick-release, tubeless plugs, tubeless valve, and SwissStop Black Prince brake pads.
