Roval Control Carbon 29

$700 USD
Not all carbon wheelsets have to cost an arm and a leg. Using techniques learned while developing the Control SL 29’s, we’ve been able to produce a lightweight set of 29” XC wheels at a more attainable price point. The rims feature a zero bead hook design that allows for continuous fiber layup across the sidewall and rim bed resulting in stronger impact resistance. •Rim Type: carbon clincher, tubeless ready, zero bead hook design, 22mm inner width •Rim Material: carbon •Rim Width: 27mm external, 22mm internal •Front Spoke Pattern: radial/3-cross (2:1) •Rear Spoke Pattern: 3-cross (1:1) •Spoke Count: 32 front and rear •Spoke Type: DT Revolution •Nipple Type: DT Pro Lock hexagonal •Front Hub: alloy body, 15mm thru-axle, and 24/28mm QR end cap options included •Rear Hub: CNC machined alloy body, high-quality DT 350 internals and quick engagement ratchet system cassette, 135/142 end cap options included •Compatible with SRAM XX1 11-speed, freehub sold separately •Bearing Type: sealed cartridge •QR: Roval RWS •Assembly Method: hand built •Total Wheelset Weight: 1,580g They have Bontrager XR3 2.3 Team Issue tires set up tubeless and each tire came in at 695g each. There are some scuffs in the finish from use but nothing that would compromise ride quality or safety. I have serviced the free hub regularly and taken great care of these wheels but I don't need 2 sets of wheels so they're up for sale. I only have about 300 miles on these because they are my secondary set and were only used for some of my out of town rides. They are true and have super light WTB black ano valve stems. I will include a second free hub body and a set of end caps to convert the rear back down to 10mm qr from the current 142x12mm which also has an extra 142x12mm free hub end cap.

Ask Pinkbike: Whips, Carbon Rims, and Cracked Frames
I actually prefer the stiffer wheels because I'm heavy and like 29rs.

Ibis Announce Updated Ripley and New LS Model
I owned a SC Tallboy 1c for about a year and it was a fun bike but tended to go through it's travel in the rear very quickly.

I have and they're a bike that's easy to jump and lean into corners. The existing models are a bit short on the TT fore me so the new design is more to my liking.

Ibis Announce Updated Ripley and New LS Model
All of the people I've seen on them are in their 30s. They're very well designed and ride like a smaller bike with better roll-over.
