Hey there,
i just bought a set of Roval Rapide CLX 40 clinchers at my local Specialized dealer. After one short test ride, I found a slight damage on the breaking surface of the front wheel. It seems like the highest paint layer is scratched. I don’t know if that was there before the test ride.

I just would like to know, if this is a serious issue and if the wheel has to be replaced.

Thanks in advance.

Who put the tire on? It could be damage from a tire lever, I'm probably wrong

I use tire levers for removing the tire, not for mounting the tire. But that might be a slight delamination of the resin exposing the raw carbon. I would have it examined by your Specialized dealer. Probably covered by warranty.

Edit: Do you remember hitting a curb or pothole?

Hey,

I've just used it for one short test ride where I definitely hit no pothole or curb. Tire was put on without a tire lever. I've sent a pic of it to my Specialized dealer. Maybe I'll let him take a look at it later today.

Just showed the wheel at the Specialized dealer. He took a close look at it and assured that it is absolutely no problem...

it's hard to tell from a picture but it doesn't seem to be that deep, I would guess it's just cosmetic but if it's a new wheel and you only took for a short ride then it's definitely something to complaint where you bought it

Yeah, it looks way more dramatic on that picture than in reality...
