Roval Traverse Fattie wheels 2015


Specialized told us at its Hood River Enduro product launch that while Roval Wheels is operated under the same roof as Specialized, and while Roval Wheels is owned by Specialized, that Roval (say: "rove ALL") is actually not a Specialized product and is in fact, a completely separate entity that just happens to pop up at Specialized launches throughout the world. Now that we are all clear on that, let's begin our presentation of Roval's most important development since its inception: the new Traverse Fattie wheelset.

Roval Traverse Fattie Wheels

Roval Joins the wider is better revolution with a stunning pair of hoops designated for AM/Trail and enduro competition. The Traverse Fattie SL features a carbon rim that measures 35 millimeters outside and 30-millimeters inside its low-profile, beadless flanges. The Traverse Fattie features an aluminum rim with the same basic dimensions, although it has a slight bead at the inside of the flanges to add impact protection and to soften blows to the tire that may cause pinch flats. Both wheels are tubeless ready designs and both roll on Roval straight-pull-type hubs with DT Swiss internals, and both use DT Swiss spokes. Traverse Fattie wheelsets will be offered in either 29 or 27.5-inch sizes, and no plans were vocalized during the launch for 26-inch versions. The wheels are hand-built and covered by a limited warranty and Roval's tech center in Salt Lake City, Utah, offers a crash replacement program which averages $80 USD for labor, and with new carbon rims reportedly costing $125. For those readers who are short on time, Traverse Fattie SL carbon wheels reportedly weigh 1570 grams in 29 inch and 1530 grams in 27.5 inch, The aluminum-rim Traverse Fatties are stated to weigh 1770 grams in 29 and 1690 grams in 27.5-inch sizes. Prices are $1,400 for the Fattie SL carbon wheelset and $600 for the aluminum versions.

  The original Traverse rims measured 21 millimeters between the flanges. By contrast, the 30-millimeter-width Fatties look cavernous.

Off-angle tire deflection tests proved what test riders already knew
- wider rims support the tire far better.



The Back Story


The wide trailbike rim movement had already gained traction among elite level riders before Roval jumped on the concept, and while a handful of wheelmakers had pushed their rim widths to 28-millimeter-internal, it was Spank that pioneered a heavier, 30-millimeter all-mountain design and Syntace that broke the ground for super-wide XC/trail rims with its lightweight MX 35 and 40-millimeter wheelsets.

The story goes that Roval may have delayed entry in the uber-wide wheel arena had Specialized's Jason Chamberlain not been so stoked about the cornering stability of his 29er fatbike, that he insisted everyone in the office to test ride his wheels. The consensus among the employees there could have been predicted by those of us who have ridden wide rims: Traction was better, cornering was far more stable and rolling resistance was equal to, sometimes better than riding the same tire fitted to a narrower rim. Better still, the tires deflected far less in rough corners and high-G, off-angle landings.

Tests were made at Specialized (oops, sorry) to compress tires mounted to different width rims onto an angled surface. The results showed conclusively, that tires deflected significantly less when mounted to wide rims. In real world trials, wider rim samples proved to be more stable and reliable in tubeless configuration. Roval's designers settled on a 30-millimeter inside-width rim because that was as wide as they felt a rim could grow and still be manufactured at a competitive weight. The key factor, however, that drove Roval to produce the Traverse Fattie was the additional control that the wheels provided in all situations.

With excess weight a key issue for its wide-rim project, the Roval team concentrated on producing the Fattie SL carbon rim first. To save weight and also to prevent the oversized rim from becoming too rigid, the spoke entries are reinforced with small patches of carbon material. A beadless flange design allows that part of the rim to be made thicker and more impact resistant, while the inner well of the rim has been profiled to catch and seal the tire's beads while performing a tubeless installation. The automatic boost in rim strength and stiffness allowed Roval designers to reduce the spoke count to 24 for the front wheel and 28 (down from 28 and 32) for the rear wheel without any loss of integrity. In addition, the stiffer hoop tends to spread deflection loads to all of the spokes more evenly, which increases the life expectancy and trueness of the wheels.

Fattie aluminum rims are similar in profile, but not direct copies of the carbon models, because metal has different properties. The rim flanges are thinner, and capped with a wider, rounded bead surface to increase impact resistance, and the rim's internal geometry was altered to form a better support structure. The rigidity of the Fattie rim is such that both the carbon and aluminum versions use the same DT Revolution butted spokes and spoke counts. The hubs, however, are slightly different, with the Fattie SL carbon wheels using DT Swiss innards and a special 56-tooth star ratchet freehub system that has a six-degree engagement. The aluminum Fattie's hub also has DT Swiss innards, but uses that makers's conventional ratchet design. Both wheelsets are HD-Drive 11-speed compatible and support all popular axle standards.

  SL carbon models are shipped wth both the vinyl sealing strip and the new Roval Plug system. Both will get your tubeless game up and running without a hassle.


New Take on Tubeless

Roval offers a molded plastic rim strip to seal the spoke entry holes and convert the Fatties to tubeless, but for the carbon SL rim, Roval developed a novel plug system. Push-in Delrin plugs, each equipped with an O-ring, are placed in each spoke access hole inside the rim and that is all you need to convert and seal the wheel for tubeless. The plugs are such a simple system that one wonders why we haven't seen this before. The plugs weigh 12 grams total versus 72 grams for the plastic rim strip - and the plugs also allow for the use of a tube if you need one. Presently, Roval's plugs only fit the carbon rims. On the tubeless subject, Roval redesigned its Presta valve to use a thick O-ring rather than the previous tapered plug and field reports say that the O-ring is a more reliable option.

Subdued Graphics - or Not

Roval turned back the flame on its graphic treatments and we are good with that. Black on black or white on black are the standard schemes, but Roval includes a three-color mylar graphic kit, similar to Enve's, with the carbon SL wheels so owners can match them up to their bikes.

Roval Traverse hubs feature straight-pull spoke flanges and
DT Swiss internals. Tool-free endcaps support all axle options.



Most riding time was spent on the Traverse SL carbon wheels, fitted to a Specialized S-Works Enduro 29er. The last riding day was spent on the 27.5-inch wheels. Pre-riding most of the stages of the Hood River enduro gave plenty of opportunites to push the Fatties over a variety off terrain and situations - including some rather stiff, loose climbs that probably gave competitors some grief. The high-speed stability of the Traverse Fattie wheels is remarkable.

Test bikes were fitted with Specialized's Butcher front tire and either the new Slaughter or a Purgatory in the rear - all in the 2.3-inch casing. When cornering, the wider rims seemed to hold a more stable edge, so when a wheel began to drift, it was a more gradual break, not a sudden push or slide. Optimum pressures were a little lower, about three PSI in most cases, although some riders were using five PSI lower pressures as starting points.

The dozen or so journalists on hand provided a sample group for pinch flats and sidewall tears. There were only four, maybe five punctures over three full days of riding, three were sidewall injuries which required tubes. The rest were slow leaks which took longer than normal for the sealant to heal. Most took place on stage five, which began with a flat-out run over imbedded rocks. Looking back at the body of evidence, it appears that the survivabiility of a tire on the Traverse Fattie wheels is about the same as that same model fitted to a narrower rim.

Where the Traverse Fattie steps up to the top block is when it is judged on perfomance. Mounted to the 30-millimeter rims, the tires felt more consistent over a wide range of conditions as the bike was run through braking, turning and climbing modes. The result was that the rider could forget about the tires and the trail surface and look farther ahead - which is a plus in any situation where speed is important.


First Impressions:
bigquotesRoval has delivered on the Traverse Fattie's performance. Judging their reliability, though, will have to wait for a longer term test. Each day, when we were done with our rides, the test bikes and wheels magically disappeared and arrvied the next morning tuned, sparkling clean and ready to rock. What I can say from three days of riding Roval's Traverse Fattie wheels is that wider is bettter, and that I would put them on my wish list. Previously, Roval wheels impressed me as being the lightest possible combination of rims, hubs and spokes to get the job done - structures tuned right to the edge of where they will not fail under their intended uses, but maybe not the best choice for a rider who will be pushing the limits. The Traverse Fatties are fast wheels, but they feel more substantial and trustworthy, and their effects upon the tire's performance are similar. Instead of smashing grams, Roval concentrated upon the strengths of the wide rim format and used them to build in an extra margin of confidence for those moments when you ignore that voice in your head that strongly suggests you should be reaching for the brakes. - RC

 I find the name "2 BLISS READY" very user unfriendly and would be very greatfull to see a standard and simple "Tubeless Ready". I bought schwalbe tires because I did not understand the joke and thought it had something to do with the compound.
English speakers may not have the problem, but please do not puzzle customers with marketing words for stuff that has a standard name! Tires have become so complicated !!! slow reezay, super tacky, super gravity, black chilly, vertstar, trailstar, snakesking, exo, 3C, protection, 2 ply... multiplied by wheelsizes, width brands, models. When am I supposed to ride my bike if I have to spend hours trying to find the right tires?

 I speak english as a first language, and I didn't get it until I said it out loud once. I agree that a clear standard would be nice, UST is good if you know what that means, but just having Tubeless ready written somewhere would be very clear for all us idiots.
  • + 1
 They use the "2 Bliss" term on both wheels and tyres - it's marketing yeah, but idea is you pair the tyres and wheels which both state such, then they get to sell you both.

"tubeless ready" is seriously misused these days - there are several rims out there which won't work properly with all "tubeless ready" tyres.

Any bike shop should be able to clearly explain all the appropriate terminology in the appropriate language, and if they can't then pick a different bike shop.

 Nope, thanks, tried it and don't like it... actually tried it twice if you count the first trend of wider rims in the early 2000... as usual every advantage comes with disadvantage... for my riding i prefer a slightly narrower rim which keeps the tire nice and round and the bike agile... i don't like how square tires become and how semi truck like the handling of my bike gets on these wider rims.

As almost everything these days that whole thing is just marketing driven to make riders drop a few dollars extra or how would you explain that's we see people riding all kinds of wheel sizes and different widths of rims winning or finishing on the podium world cup level competition these days?

There is really no golden standard but its what YOU prefer for YOUR riding!

 This wide rim thing isn't new. Anyone remember the sun rims double wide? Outer Width: 45.9mm Inner Width: 33mm and i remember the ditch witch all tho being a shitty rim was pretty wide too.

 Oh I remember them, just got a brand new pair of MTX39 for my FR/DH bike. Thinking of putting them on my DJ bike and going for the Double Wide on the big rig Smile Love them to bits, hard as nails, NEVER had a problem with them. The only rim that is better than a SUN rim is the Supra MT maybe...

 I really feel you even though I have a 29er I dont know why no ones making 26er. Rims and rubbers. 26ers arent dead or dying they are just as good as all the other sizes if you are'nt racing and they're more fun to ride IMO. I know since my freind has a 26er and we switch bikes sometimes.

 You Can just go for the Rigida Trace enduro rim, it's available in 26", 27.5" and 29" they are 33mm external and 29 internal

 I don't get it - we used to ride wide rims so many years ago, for years they were the standard for anyone who rode hard on rocky terrain. It's well known that wider rims allow you to use less rubber for the same result, and aluminum weight far less then rubber. When and why did we ever got back to slim rims? Who ever thought that slim would be better?
  • + 2
 marketing bullshite again...
  • + 1
 You can attribute that to early 90s XC where things were dominated by dirt roadies. Winning there is dominated by how well you do on the climbs (and still is, but to a reduced degree). Narrow rims and 1.9" tires are worth if it you save a minute on the uphills and only lose 5 on the downhills.
  • + 4
 Rims have been narrow for last few years due to weight concerns ... modern manufacturing techniques and advanced computer modelling of the forces involved now allow things to be done the way we all always wanted them Smile
  • + 5
 30 mil inside diameter. thats a small rim.
  • + 1
 Serious question because I dont know... why do the Roval hubs with DT Swiss internals have 6 degree engagement, yet the DT spline 1 wheels with the 36 tooth engagement have 10 degrees of engagement? I thought DT put their high engagement system in the Spline 1 series of wheels. Have Roval modified the internals, or is one of the companies exaggerating or underestimating the engagement angle?
  • + 1
 The 54 point engagement system is completely new (and is actually 6.66º) - AFAIK they are [currently] only offering it in rebranded hubs, e.g. Bontrager & Roval ... unless Specialized have arranged a custom 60 point (which I highly doubt) to match the 6º mentioned above.

 wide is good, my 10 year old mavic 321s at 36mm have been great, hardly ever flat and I dont run high pressures(19-24front 23-28rear depending on weather and terrain).

 Mavic 321 rims have a internal width of 21mm. The last 2 digits are the internal width, 819 = 19mm, 729 = 29mm, etc.

 The d321 was before the internal width convention and is the predecessor to the 729. Same rim other than name.
  • + 1
 yip still have mine, never changed, don't like the narrower ones as tyres tend to roll at low psi...
  • + 2
 nigelh, like marshalolson said, they changed the name of them to 729 in '04 or '05, i actually have an old 321(10 years old atleast) upfront and 729 in the back. Point being, things have gone full circle here, for the better.
  • + 1
 to be clear this is not a UST wheel. It requires a Stan's like rim strip and the tubeless is Specialized specific that causes problems with UST tires that are not made by the big S. Deplorable. It comes without a stem from the description. 1600 bux..........never.

 "The Big S" is not the only company making tires compatible with these rims. Just like Tanginator says, not a lot of people clinging to the UST boat even though it was a good attempt at standardization. You can run WTB, Schwalbe, Specialized and a load of other brands with no problems and the tire weight is usually ~150g less than their UST counterparts. Sealant/strip is the way to go for now.

 Sun Ringle Single Track rims with Hope hubs... 31mm external. 36h. best wheelset I have EVER had. been rolling them for the last 8 years. (I have wasted a lot of money buying other wheelsets but always end up back on these)

 Shhhhhh, how are they supposed to sell new stuff when Sun already had the problem solved with the Single track, Double Wide and Rhyno lite (for trail/ xc)?
Paired to a Shimano hub, you should get about 15 years out of a $100-$200 wheelset that will unlikely ever even break a spoke. Run' em 2bliss or tubed, pump em to App.21 PSI. Done.
If you manage to destroy the wheel, I'm sure something else (like your femur) probably broke as well in the collision.
And they come in 26".
Now go and ride and drink beer. Repeat as necessary. Don't attempt at the same time.
  • + 0
 The whole not a specialized product is the biggest cop-out ever. It just means that when something goes wrong, they can pretend it's someone else's fault. I broke a spoke on my Roval Traverse in December 2013 - still waiting for a replacement. (Thankfully Lynn Valley bikes has a spoke cutting machine, it means I have an odd spoke, but it works). Specialized Canada really needs to get their parts distribution together, I won't be buying another specialized bike unless they sort it out (which makes me sad, because I love riding them, just hate their service).

 MORE WIDE LESS TUBE! These rims sound great, and are only 120$ for alu?? I'd really like to know the rim weights as whole wheel weights don't tell you anything about how much rotational weight is involved, and personally I don't give a crap what my hub weighs within about 100gm margin. I just built up some 29er WTB KOMs with an inner width of 23mm at less than 450gm, but if these rims could come close to that weight I'd be very interested.

 forgive me if im wrong but wont the rim change how wide the tire will be ? so if you have wide rims then you can runs slightly narrower tires right?
  • + 1
 The volume of the tire is increased, but the width is only slightly wider. Where the difference is, is that the sidewalls form a straighter line to the edging tread and the crown tread profile is flatter. The flatter crown profile makes the transition to the edging blocks more seamless in a corner. The sidewall profile better supports the tire.
