2013 Roval Control Carbon 29 Review


Roval Control Carbon 29 Review

MSRP: $1200 Weight: 1780 grams Pros: Ride Quality Cons: Price Cost per Gram: $0.64

Summary: 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.

Weigh in with the Control Carbon Wheelset

Weighed in with rim strips, valves and QR skewers.
