Product Information

Specialized Roval CL 50 Disc Wheelset

Specialized designed the brand-new CL 50 wheelset after they'd created the CLX 50s. They realized that an affordable, race-worthy carbon wheelset was nowhere to be found so took it upon themselves to pioneer this field by pairing their quiver-killing CLX 50 Disc rim with DT Swiss Competition round spokes, their Aero Flange Disc hubs with DT Swiss 350 internals, and steel bearings to deliver you an exceptional wheelset at a more than 'accessible' price. Disc-specific rims allow you to not only ditch the brake track but also provide a stronger, more impact-resistant rim. This comes at the hands of a disc-specific carbon layup that optimizes stiffness and keeps weight as close to its rim-brake brethren as possible. And all the while, you get incredible brake modulation and power in all conditions. Taking the rims from their CLX 50s, Specialized's CL 50s come with many benefits including an overall weight of just 1515 grams. While this weight may be similar to other wheelsets in the 'lightweight' domain, Specialized prioritized aerodynamics in the CL 50s design. They used  Computational Fluid Dynamics computer modeling to shape the CL 50s and eventually were able to narrow the rim shape down to three contenders that were then CNC machined into rims, built into wheels, and put into the Win Tunnel. As a result of this testing, Specialized concluded that a modern-width 24c tyre around their rims allows for less tyre pressure, which increases comfort and reduces rolling resistance, and is more aerodynamically efficient when paired with the correct rim width. And so the CL 50s were born, a 50mm deep 1515 gram clincher wheelset that is ready to race.
