The Roval Traverse 27.5 Carbon 148 from Specialized is designed for those who crave an adrenaline-filled ride through rough terrains and steep slopes. These robust yet nimble wheels have proven their credibility in the toughest of trails, showing they are more than capable of exceeding your expectations.

These wheels are engineered with features that prioritise your performance; staying true after launching off drops, light enough for efficient climbs, and enduring resistance. The rim incorporates a continuous fibre layup across the sidewall and rim bed, courtesy of our Zero Bead Hook design. With a substantial 30-millimeter internal rim width, you experience outstanding wheel resilience, low rolling resistance, and unparalleled traction. Furthermore, these features also counter the issue of ""burping"" during hard cornering, while making the tubeless set-up straightforward.

We have also taken into consideration usability to enhance your overall cycling experience. Our newly engineered hub design features a wider profile and higher flange for augmented overall stiffness and exemplary ride performance. A wider rim provides utmost confidence and grip, along with provisions to run at lower pressures that optimally disseminate impact, thus reducing the possibility of damage. Combined with the lively and agile 27.5 platform, this results in an exceptionally stiff, quick-to-accelerate wheelset that performs well for climbs and descent descents alike.

In keeping with our design philosophy of a trail perfect rim, the wheels are hand-laced to the DT Swiss 350 Classic hubs via 28 DT Swiss Competition Race spokes and brass Pro Lock nipples. Inside, the wheels have sealed cartridge bearings and a 36t quick engagement ratchet system for rapid accelerations. The wheelset is delivered to you with a SRAM XD driver 11-speed freehub and a tubeless valve stem, for your convenience in setting up a tubeless tyre. *Shimano freehubs are sold separately.

In finetuning the Roval Traverse 27.5 Carbon 148, we were meticulous to ensure that the wheels are as much about performance as they about style. Our handcrafted detail ensures each wheel is built without error, delivering a precision unmatched by machines. Experience the thrill of cycling like never before with the Roval Traverse 27.5 Carbon 148.

Please note: Manufacturers can sometimes change the specification of the products from time to time.
