ROL Race SL Wheels

by Chickenlegs   August 6, 2014  

I would love to know of anyone else using these wheels. I think they are amazing. Quick, light and cost me just under £600 to get them in from Texas. My LBS has given me a grudging thunbs up as they go Mavic everytime, which isn't bad at all but I think these are the equivelent of Mavics top end wheels at a lot less money. Positive comments appreciated...... Wave

This sounds good.

Weight? Stiffness? Comfort? Wind cutting ability?

Please, tell me more!

I've had these from new and been very happy with them, no problems. However, I've changed these for hand built Archetypes using coloured White Industries T11 hubs and black Cx-Ray spokes - imported from the US for £520. Although these wheels are about 100g heavier, they are much better for my local roads, i.e rough terrain, much more comfortable because of the wider rim and of course the hubs are world class and will allow endless new builds, if one needs/desires.
In fact I just came back from riding the Tour of Flanders route on these wheels today and was very impressed with their performance.
