The Draw: Renaissance Wheels

Out of all the wheels tested, these were the most fun to ride. The Roval CLX 32 wheelset is a super lightweight, tubeless ready, shallow depth wheelset that measures 20.7mm wide internally. The extra width translates to a wheel with great traction that rolls smoothly and efficiently. The freehubs on these hubs are very quiet, which takes a little bit of getting used to. Braking performance was very good in wet and dry conditions. Similar to others in this category, this wheelset is best for a lightweight rider on a hilly course. The wide brake track may exclude you from riding these wheels on some frames, so check your bike’s clearance before purchasing.

32mm rim depth; $2,400; clincher; 1,280g
