Specialized Roval Rapide CXR 60
The bike giant from Northern California isn’t new to wheel production, but the Roval Rapide CXR 60 is their first serious aero creation. Following the industry-wide trend to broad aero wheels, the Roval Rapide CXR 60’s brake track is 24.5mm across. The carbon clincher rims taper to a moderately sharp inner diameter, and the nipples are hidden in the rim.
Specialized is just dipping their toes into aero wheels for now. This is the one and only version that is ready to go, and they will decide whether to expand the wheel line to include others based on the reaction to this 60mm version.
The pair weighs 1,515 grams, uses DT Swiss hub internals and they are 11-speed compatible. They’re going to list for $2,200.
