29ers are all about speed, and the Hardrock 29 wheelset delivers on this in spades—no matter if you're just getting started or you're a seasoned trail rider. The wheels have been built tough to meet the rigors of mountain biking head-on, while the ample wheel size guarantees a fast-rolling good time. They features a durable, double-wall alloy rim construction that adds strength without stacking on the weight, and to ensure that you'll be able to stop once you get motoring, the wheels are both disc- and rim-brake compatible. High value just met high performance. - Disc-compatible hubs can also be used with traditional rim brakes. - Double-wall rims are strong and durable. - Machined braking surface creates superior stopping power in any condition. - Stainless spokes won't rust, easing long-term maintenance. - 8-/9-speed cassette rear hub provides plenty of gearing options for climbing and riding the flats.
The name Crossmax is synonymous with XC riding and racing. This new tubeless-ready wheel boasts many of the same features and technologies as premium XC race wheels, but at a more attainable price. One of the key factors is Mavic's UST technology, which allows for easy setup of tubeless ready tires and gives you all the associated benefits including better traction and control, a smoother ride quality and a reduced risk of punctures. The new rim design features a 22mm internal width with a hookless profile. The wheels are built with 24 straight-pull spokes to save weight and maximize wheel strength, so you get just the right balance of efficiency and durability. Power transfer is handled by Mavic's TS-2 freehub, which is compatible with all common axle standards. It’s available in Boost or Non-Boost hub widths and can be used with quick-release or thru-axle setups with optional adapters.
Traverse means to ride up, across and down, which is exactly what Roval's Traverse Fattie 29 Wheelset does best. Made with tough Specialized E5 aluminum rims laced with pro-level DT Swiss spokes and nipples, these wheels are a sure fire way to supercharge your trail riding. The 29mm internal rim width supports tire sidewalls better for increased volume, allowing lower pressures, more grip, less air burping, and a ride that feels like your bike gained an extra inch of travel. You can run them with or without tubes and the front hub is compatible with 20mm or 15mm through-axles. The rear hub, replete with DT Swiss 360 internals, comes with end caps for a 135mm quick release or a 12x142mm through axle.
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. What sets the Control 29 wheels apart is that they share many of the same advanced technologies as our carbon version, the Control SL. They adopt the same rim shape with a 25-millimeter inner width, extensive on-trail testing, and our Zero Bead Hook technology. Our 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. We know 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 we're 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. Our objective of low weight and reliability, at an accessible price, also carries into the Control 29 build. We hand-build each rim to our 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. We fully support the art of hand-building and do so with our wheels, knowing that real people can catch things that a machine simply cannot. - 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. - Total Wheelset Weight: 1690g
The incredibly light, extra-wide carbon fiber rims of Roval's Traverse SL Fattie 29 wheels let you scale the climbs and push the limits on the downs. Up or down, the 30mm internal rim width supports tire sidewalls better for increased volume, allowing lower pressures, more grip, less air burping, and a ride that feels like your bike gained an extra inch of travel. The sealed bearing hubs roll smooth as the terrain around you gives way to the blur. Connected, responsive, incredible. An entire vocabulary lesson of adjectives cloud your thoughts as you shove these stiff, wide hoops into a corner and they launch you out all the while begging for more. Momentarily, you sever your bond with gravity for the sweet sensation of floating. Upon touch down, solid, dependable, awesome rush into your mind. These words resound as you resume your connection to the soil, feel the quick engagement of the DT Swiss hub internals and rip on the pedals.
