Roval Traverse Carbon 27.5 Boost XD Wheelset

Trails can get hairy very fast, and that's exactly what nimble wheels like the Traverse 27.5 Carbon are designed for. The steep climbs and descents helped inspire some pretty radical designs, and most importantly, left Roval with no doubt that these wheels will exceed your expectations.

Let's talk about those expectations. They include everything from the ability to stay true after launching off drops to being light enough to efficiently pedal to the top of a climb—and they all begin with the rim. Roval engineers knew they wanted carbon fiber, and with the inclusion of their Zero Bead Hook design, they were able to implement a continuous fiber layup across the sidewall and rim bed. And when paired with a whopping 30-millimeter internal rim width, you get a wheel that's super resilient to impact with low rolling resistance and incredible traction. You'll also find that it helps prevent "burping" during hard cornering, while making tubeless set up quick and easy.

A wider rim does a variety of things for ride performance—it better supports the tire for increased confidence and grip, and it affords you the ability to run lower pressures to aid in the aforementioned, as well as spreading impact out over a larger surface area to reduce the risk of damage during impact. And when you combine this girth with the notoriously nimble and playful 27.5 platform, you’re left with an incredibly stiff, quick to accelerate wheelset that climbs just as well as it shreds descents.

After designing the perfect trail rim, Roval kept their lightweight and durable design properties in mind with the wheel build, hand-lacing the rims to DT Swiss 350 Classic hubs via 28 (front) and 28 (rear) DT Swiss Competition Race spokes and brass Pro Lock nipples. Inside, you'll find sealed cartridge bearings and a 36T quick engagement ratchet system for quick accelerations. Roval also wanted to ensure that each wheel was built correctly, and found that this could only be achieved by hand. Machines, they found, have a tendency to miss little mistakes that humans would otherwise catch.

Finally, with the 15x110 / 12x148mm configuration, you receive all of the benefits that Boost™ spacing offers. By increasing the width of the front and rear hub flanges, and in turn, increasing frame and fork clearance and stiffness, you obtain a stiffer, stronger, and more durable system at a minor weight penalty. Each wheelset comes packaged with a SRAM XD driver and a tubeless valve stem in order to make tubeless set-up a touch easier.

*Please note that Shimano freehubs are sold separately.

  • Spokes are laced in a two-cross pattern
  • Both wheels are hand built at every step
