Specialized/Roval Rapide CL II Wheelset Description:

The Rapide CL II wheelset brings the Rapide CLX II’s speed, efficiency, incredible handling, and stability in any conditions to more riders. Built on the exact same rims as the Rapide CLX II to elevate all this performance with tubeless-done-right technology, the Rapide CL II makes that performance easier to catch at check-out and you almost impossible to catch on the open road.

By utilizing the first modeling algorithm designed around riders’ real-world reaction times and validated by on-road testing, Roval developed a front rim that both reduces drag AND increases stability by 25% in sudden wind gusts compared to our previous 50mm rims. The rear wheel is the last thing the wind sees, so they developed the rim shape to minimize drag at the trailing edge of the bike. At 60mm deep with a 30mm external width, the Rapide CL II rear rim reduces turbulence and yields the greatest aerodynamic benefit. Together, they represent the fastest package for real-world race conditions.

The reduced rolling resistance of a tubeless setup is undeniable, as are the benefits of improved handling and incredible puncture protection. The development of the Rapide CL II involved the most rigorous and extensive engineering and testing program Roval's ever undertaken and resulted in a wheelset that almost doubles the current industry impact standards. The Rapide CL II utilizes a hooked rim (allowing for real-world riding pressures up to 110psi, if that’s your thing) for secure tire bead retention and an easier set up and mounting experience than ever before.
