Description of Specialized Roval Control 29 148 Wheelset - 6-bolt - FW: 15x110 mm | RW: 12x148 mm - SRAM XD - black/charcoal

When you think of lightweight XC wheels, aluminum probably doesn't come to mind. In reality, though, high-grade alloy wheels have all of the tremendous performance properties found in carbon, like light overall weight, durability, and resilience to impact. And when made with the right hands, they're perfect for competitive racers and everyday trail riders alike. The problem is that, while many carbon wheels can check these boxes with ease, most alloy wheels don't live up to these expectations. In the case of the Control 29 wheels, however, there’s finally an aluminum wheelset that's truly ready to race.

Specialized Roval Control 29 148 features:

  • Rim Type: Alloy clincher, 2Bliss Ready, Zero Bead Hook design
  • Rim Material: E5 high-strength alloy
  • Rim Width: 25mm internal
  • Front Spoke Pattern: Two-cross
  • Rear Spoke Pattern: Two-cross
  • Spoke Count: 28h Front, 28h Rear
  • Spoke Type: DT Swiss Competition Race J-bend
  • Nipple Type: DT Swiss Alloy Pro Lock hexagonal
  • Front Hub: Alloy body, 15mm thru-axle, 19 and 31mm OD end cap options included.
  • Rear Hub: CNC-machined alloy body, high-quality DT Swiss 360 internals, 148mm spacing, XD driver body.
  • Roval Engineered J-bend hubshells have a single spoke length for each wheelset.
  • Bearing Type: Sealed cartridge
  • Assembly Method: Hand-built
  • Every wheel includes tubeless valve stems in order to make tubeless set-up a touch easier.

What sets the Control 29 wheels apart is that they share many of the same advanced technologies as the carbon version, the Control SL. They adopt the same rim shape with a 25-millimeter inner width, extensive on-trail testing, and the Zero Bead Hook technology.

The Zero Bead Hook rim takes away the dated mountain wheel design known as a bead hook. This hook is the part of the rim that crests at the top, sitting several millimeters inward from the rim’s sidewall, and it catches the tire’s bead under its hook. Specialized knows this may not sound too bad, but the hook establishes a weak spot in the rim that's easily crushed or bent. Without a hook, a rim can be manufactured to much tighter tolerances and can be made lighter due to the hook not needing to be reinforced. For these wheels, this means that Specialized is able to nearly equal the strength of carbon, while also making them lighter than many carbon wheels. More importantly, a Zero Bead Hook all but gets rid of the aforementioned weak spot in the rim that's plagued riders with flat spots and dents for decades. If you happen to be one of those riders that enjoys riding your four-inch travel XC bike like it’s a six-inch trail bike, you’re in luck.

Specialized´s objective of low weight and reliability, at an accessible price, also carries into the Control 29 build. Specialized hand-build each rim to their alloy hubs, which feature DT Swiss internals at the rear and a design that allows for the same spoke lengths at both front and rear, via perfectly tensioned DT Swiss Revolution J-Bend spokes and Pro Lock nipples. Specialized fully supports the art of hand-building and do so with their wheels, knowing that real people can catch things that a machine simply cannot.
