Hi there~

Which is good in special roval clx40 vs Campy Boraone 50 ?

Roval heard talking about thermal deformation lot compared to the other wheel.

Thanks.

rovals are a narrower profile. they LOOK great, haven't ridden myself, but ive seen a friend damn near get blown off a bridge on them.

the campys are top notch - direct experience with teh tubular versions. brake tracks holding up great even under heavy descending. hubs are solid. wheels are laterally stiff. and so far completely durable.


just go campy. just do it. (FYI i dont think fulcrum has adopted the wider rim profile yet - campy of course does make shimano profile freehub bodies)

I have a pair of Campy Bora One 35's on one bike and they're truly amazing. Stiff as heck, but never uncomfortable, holds the line perfectly even when you push them hard and really great braking, even in rain.

On my other bike, I have a pair of Enve SES6.7's. A touch more sensitive to cross-wind (although not nearly as much as you would expect), takes a bit longer to spin up (the Bora 35's are pretty much instant!), but holds speed forever. When I want to go out and ride hard, these are the wheels I would pick. Brake surface is almost as good as Campy.

I've ridden about 2600 miles on Roval CLX40's, about 1400 miles and CLX60's and about 250 miles on CLX64's. Simply put Roval builds an outstanding wheel.

Without any doubt, the Bora's.... better yet if they are 2015-16.

Campagnolo doesn't provide any info under technical specs www.campagnolo.com/media/files/035_204_ ... o_2015.pdf
What's the rim shape (e.g., U or V)? What the inner/outer width?

Roval 40 wheels get pushed around in the cross winds more than most due to boxy rim shape.

Right now the Bora One is pretty hard to beat especially for the price from Starbike.

How do you compare the CLX 64 to the 60?

I agree. And for that reason I purchased both a Bora One 35 clincher and a Bora One 50 tubular wheelset from Starbike last spring for about the same price as a single Bora Ultra wheelset.

If you use Bora which was made in 2015-16, you must not regret.
It has a great performance comparing with
Other wheels(enve, zip...)

Looks like a traditional "V" shape and no inner width specs provided.

Ridden both and they are both great wheels. Bora's seemed a fraction lighter but really little to no noticeable difference. Bora's look better, that's the only big difference imho. Both felt much better than a set of Zipp 303's I tried.

Two wheels are both good wheels I think. But, if I buy just one wheel, I want to try Bora 50.
