What you're looking at here is gravity's nemesis: Roval's Control SL 29 Wheelset 148. At 1,330 grams, you'll climb XC courses with ease on these lightweight, hookless-bead, carbon hoops. They're built to withstand grunting up climbs, descending with abandon, and blasting in and out of corners with Specialized carbon rims, DT Swiss spokes, and DT Swiss's legendary 240 rear hub internals. The Boost spacing offers increased width on the front and rear hub flanges, and in turn, increased frame and fork clearance and stiffness. This combines to deliver a more durable wheel system at a minor weight penalty. Plus, these sweet race-ready wheels are tubeless-compatible so you are ready for anything that the trail throws at you.
Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
