The Roval Control SL 29 Torque Tube wheels are nearly identical to the "standard" Control SL 29s, with the only exception being at the front hub. For this wheelset, the front hub features a SRAM Torque Tube design that's intended for use exclusively with the RockShox RS-1 fork. Again, it's not compatible with any other fork. However, if you're running an RS-1, you'll get hand-built, ultralight carbon perfection with a Zero Bead Hook design. This design pairs perfectly with tubeless tires, while also increasing both strength and impact-resistance. Meanwhile, the rims have been laced via DT Swiss Competition spokes to strong alloy hubs with DT Swiss 240 internals (rear only) that serve-up lightening-fast engagement and acceleration.
Front wheel for use with RockShox's RS-1 fork only.
