Specialized’s 2021 Roval Control Carbon 6B Wheels Get a Lifetime Warranty.

The new Specialized Roval Control Carbon wheels offer a slightly more-wallet friendly carbon wheel option than the Control SL wheelset.

Based on the flagship Control SL rim design, the Control Carbon wheelset offers similar performance without savaging your bank account quite so badly.

Key features:

  • Control SL 29 Rim
  • 29mm Internal Width
  • 4mm FlatTop Bead Hook
  • Tubeless Compatible
  • New DT Swiss 350 Hub Straight-pull
  • Thru Axle 100x15mm & 148x12mm
  • 1450g w/ Tubeless Rim Tape
  • Wheelset Lifetime Warranty
  • £1,150.00 RRP

Coming in a full £650 lighter on the wallet and only 120g heavier than the Control SL wheelset, the Specialized Roval Control Carbon 6B offers plenty of light weight carbon performance at a less eye-watering price. You get the same carbon rim construction but rather than the DT Swiss 240 internals like on the pricier offerings, these come laced to DT’s new 350 hub.

Sporting a 29mm internal width designed to run with 2.3-2.5″ tyres, you also get a 4mm rims bead width to protect against pinchflats. The broader bead aiming to spread the load of the impact on the tyre out over a larger area.
