HOME > COMPONENTS > WHEELS > 2021 ROVAL CLX 50 - REAR

First came our CLX 64. Then the 32s. And after racking up multiple wins in Grand Tours Worlds and everything in between we knew that our best bet was to take the line to new heights or well new depths. We needed to design one wheel that was a true quiver killer. One wheel that had all the aerodynamic benefits of the 64 in a package that climbed like the 32 and that’s where the all-new CLX 50 comes in.

When we set out to create the CLX 50 we had clear goals in mind—create wheels that are 48 to 54mm deep aerodynamically optimized ultra-wide and under 1400 grams. This meant that they'd have to borrow some weight savings techniques that we developed for the CLX 32 while taking some aero guidance from the CLX 64 if we were going to create what we like to call “the unicorn wheel."

Even though the CLX 50 is similar in weight to many wheels in the “lightweight” category aerodynamics came at the forefront of the development. With this we jumped headlong into Computational Fluid Dynamics computer modelling to arrive at various rim shapes that could make the CLX 50 as fast and light as possible. It took a while but we narrowed the rim shape down to three contenders that were then CNC machined into rims built into wheels and put into the Win Tunnel.

In the tunnel we tested every wheel ours and the competition's with a 24C tire (measuring 26C) as tires can drastically affect testing. We chose a modern-width tire to design our rims around because they not only allow for less tire pressure (which results in more comfort and less rolling resistance) but are also just as aerodynamically efficient when paired with the correct rim width.

After finding the optimized rim shape that supported our svelte weight requirements we opted to lace the rims via 21 DT Swiss Aerolite spokes to our Aero Flange (AF) hub with the legendary CeramicSpeed bearings and DT 240 hub internals. And when it was time for final testing validation we were left with a 50mm-deep 770-gram clincher wheelset that's not only ~200 grams lighter than the competition’s similar depth wheel but is also measurably faster in every conceivable test than each wheel in its category.
