Introducing Roval Control Carbon mountain bike wheels, offering World Cup Performance for everyone. With a $1,350 price tag and tipping the scales at 1450g, this lightweight carbon wheelset features proven DT Swiss hubs and a the proven Roval name.
From weekend hot laps to world cup XC qualifiers, the Control Carbon combines the low weight and strength found in their class-leading Control SL rim with the new DT Swiss 350 hubs. An unmatched level of durability, precision, and performance in this new Carbon Control set that is keen to open terrain, climbs, and berms, to a whole new era of riding.
Having your cake and eating it too is now a possibility with the combination of thoroughbred race-winning technology ingrained with a workhorse mentality. Packed with proven performance without the heavy price tag, the new Roval Control Carbon will take you to that next level of riding performance. The new Control Carbon brings top-tier performance to the masses.
Carried over from the World Cup proven Control SL Wheelset – Benefitting from the development process that led to their flagship Control SL, the Control Carbon features the same zero-bead-hook design and 29mm-inner width. By choosing a unique combination of composite materials and engineering a layup schedule with continuous fiber across the sidewall, we maximize strength, ride quality, and durability while keeping weight to a minimum.
The asymmetric design of the Control rim offers some subtle but important benefits. With the spokes offset to one side of the rim, this allows Roval to reduce the spoke offset that usually occurs at the hub. In turn, this means greater bracing angles for the spokes between the hub and rim, while also minimizing the spoke tension differential that often occurs between drive- and non-drive side spokes. The end result is a wheel that is stronger, laterally stiffer, more durable, and in the case of the Control, allows them to utilize the same length spoke throughout the whole wheelset.
DT Swiss 350 Hubs
Why reinvent the hub? Striking a no-hassle balance between low weight and low maintenance, Roval chose DT Swiss 350 Classic hubs (15x110mm thru-axle front, 12x148mm thru-axle rear) as the basis for the Control Carbon wheels. With sealed bearings, a notoriously durable 36-tooth ratchet, and 28 spokes front and rear, dependability is assured.
