The all-new Rapide CL II wheelset brings that same speed, that same efficiency, that same incredible handling and stability in any conditions to more riders. Built on the exact same rims as the Rapide CLX II to elevate all this performance with tubeless-done-right technology, the Rapide CL II makes that performance easier for you to catch at check-out, and you almost impossible to catch on the open road. Featuring the 60mm CLX II rim profile, and an external width 30mm front rim, the Rapide CL II Rear Wheel reduces drag, delivers great power transfer to the road, and handles cornering well under rider weight. Roval's principle that Stability Equals Speed thanks to control and rider confidence, which is largely driven by the front wheel, which is more exposed, but the deep-section rear rims become more optimal overall with aero road framesets. By utilizing the first modeling algorithm designed around riders’ real-world reaction times Roval developed the CLX II rim deployed here for incredible performance that is complemented by the different dimensions and design of the front wheel model.

The Rapide CL II is hand built every step of the way, from initial lay-up to the final tensioning on the spoke nipples. Built on a rear DT Swiss 350 Center Lock Disc 12/142mm thru-axle hub with 24 Competition Race straightpull spokes, the result is an smooth rolling and efficient wheel designed as a complete system that weighs just 865 grams for the front (1590 grams as a set when paired with the front), delivering incredible reliability and durability, with World Tour ready performance. DT's 36T, 10 degree Star Ratchet system is used for drive and engagement, and DT offers increased tooth ratchet options for finer engagement if desired. Efficiency also comes with proper tubeless tire usage. The reduced rolling resistance of a tubeless setup is undeniable, as are the benefits of improved handling and incredible puncture protection. The development of the Rapide CL II involved the most rigorous and extensive engineering and testing program that Roval has ever undertaken and resulted in a wheelset that almost doubles current industry impact standards while managing to achieve the lightest weight possible. As a result the Rapide CL II Rear Wheel also utilizes a hooked rim (allowing for real-world riding pressures up to 110psi, should you prefer) for secure tire bead retention and an easier set up and mounting experience than ever before.
