Flora Duffy introduced the Roval Alpinist! Roval has launched two new carbon disc brake wheelsets, the Alpinist CLX and the Rapide CLX. As its name suggests, the Alpinist CLX is aimed at climbers, with a headline weight of 1,248g.
Duffy posted on Social Media, “Perfect for my favorite hill at the World Triathlon Bermuda and perfect making my bike even lighter.”
The Rapide CLX is designed for riders who want a fast all-round wheelset, and comes with differential front and rear rim depths and profiles, and a claimed weight of 1,400g.
Both wheelsets are disc brake only, with no rim brake or tubular versions planned, and surprisingly, neither is designed to be run tubeless.
