For 2012, Specialized has a lot of exciting brand new products to offer, which includes the new race-ready wheelset called Roval Control SL 29. These stiff hand-built wheels feature a carbon rim that comes with a CNC-machined alloy body rear hub and a carbon front hub.
While the wheelset is designed based on the Control SL 29, the X-12 142+ rear hub flange spacing makes the new model even stiffer and balances spoke tension. The molded fiber disc rim is tubeless compatible while its front hub is compatible with the standard 24mm/28mm QR and 15mm thru-axle.
Designed for exclusive use on 2011 Epic 29er bikes and frames, the 2012 Specialized Roval Control SL 29 Wheelset is made unbelievably lightweight, weighing in at only 1440g. Other nice features include DT pro lock hexagonal alloy nipples and Roval titanium quick releases.
