Roval Rapide CLX II and Alpinist CLX II wheels are now tubeless compatible

Roval has announced the release of the new Rapide CLX II and Alpinist CLX II wheels, which it not only claims to be the fastest wheels it’s ever made, but also now come as tubeless.

According to Roval, and with the backing of stats from, the previous generation of Rapide and Alpinist wheels have won more races on the WorldTour than any other wheels. Now, Roval says it’s made them faster and, perhaps more importantly, better real-world wheels. Not everyone is a WorldTour pro, so while ultimate performance is important, this update claims to bring features for the everyday rider. Only time (and testing) will tell if they deserve a spot on our list of the best road bike wheels.
