Roval Rapide CL II Wheels

The new Rapide CL II wheelset brings that same speed, efficiency, and 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 technology.

The Rapide CL II is hand built every step of the way, from the initial lay-up to the final tensioning on the nipples. Built on DT Swiss 350 hubs with a 36-tooth Star Ratchet and Competition Race straight-pull spokes, the result is a set of wheels designed as a complete system that weighs just 1590 grams a set, delivering incredible reliability and durability with World Tour-ready performance.

By utilizing the exact same rim as the CLX II, the CL II reduces drag AND increases stability by 25% in sudden wind gusts compared to our CLX 50mm rims. It also makes them tubeless-ready. The reduced rolling resistance of a tubeless setup is undeniable, as are the benefits of improved handling and incredible puncture protection. The Rapide CL II utilizes a hooked rim (allowing for real-world riding pressures up to 110psi for secure tyre bead retention, an easier set up and mounting experience than ever before, and the flexibility to run any tyre.

The all-new BlackBelt puncture protection positioned under the tire tread. Using a new hybrid kevlar breaker, the BlackBelt is now lighter and stronger, delivering up to 12% more puncture protection than the previous BlackBelt. It also happens to be more flexible, which adds up to more speed and a more supple, better handling ride.
