These are the do-everything all-rounders of the Roval CLX range. The CLX 32 are the climbing wheels, a balance between aeroynamics and weight. The CLX 64 are the ultimate speed wheels; deep, aero, fast.

As you'd expect from the numbers, the CLX 50 fits in between these two extremes. 50mm depth might sound deep for an "everyday use" wheel, but Specialized have shaped the profile so that the centre of pressure is behind the steering axis, making these exceptionally stable in crosswinds.

Each hand-built wheel comes with CeramicSpeed bearings for ultimate smoothness and durability, together with DT Swiss Aerolight bladed spokes. This really is a "no expense spared" wheelset, which makes the relatively low retail price all the more remarkable. You're really getting a lot for your money with these wheels, both in terms of research and development and quality of materials used.

Shimano/SRAM 11 Speed compatible.

Barry has been road testing the CLX 50, and he was very impressed. Check out his glowing review on our blog, and watch the video review.

...I loved these wheels. But there is more to it than that.
They are very special indeed. At £2500 they would be a strong buy. At £1870 they are an absolute no brainer…

They deserve to go on many bikes. It would be a crime if there was a snob value which meant you could only put a set of these on a Specialized bike. They deserve to be on C60s, Parlees, Bianchis and the like.
