The incredibly light, extra-wide carbon fiber rims of Roval's Traverse SL Fattie 650B wheels let you scale the climbs and push the limits on the downs. Up or down, the 30mm internal rim width supports tire sidewalls better for increased volume, allowing lower pressures, more grip, less air burping, and a ride that feels like your bike gained an extra inch of travel. The sealed bearing hubs roll smooth as the terrain around you gives way to the blur. Connected, responsive, incredible. An entire vocabulary lesson of adjectives cloud your thoughts as you shove these stiff, wide hoops into a corner and they launch you out all the while begging for more. Momentarily, you sever your bond with gravity for the sweet sensation of floating. Upon touch down, solid, dependable, awesome rush into your mind. These words resound as you resume your connection to the soil, feel the quick engagement of the DT Swiss hub internals and rip on the pedals.
