Roval Control Carbon 29 Review
Weight: 1780 grams
Pros: Ride Quality
Cost per Gram: $0.64
To say the least, I was a little hesitant to jump on these wheels without doing some easy riding first. I really didn’t have enough time with them to be able to do that, though. So I went in head first. I ran them at 25 psi on the longest trail I could find and didn’t have a single issue with burping, and I’m not exactly a small guy. I really gave these wheels a beating and they never gave me one cause for concern. Gap jumps, drops, hard berms, rocks, creeks, ROCKS, not one issue.
The carbon rims provide an unmatched ride quality, but they are a bit heavy for the price. Would I buy a set for my stable? Probably not. Would it be a selling point on a new Specialized? Hell yea.
