If you need more tire you are on the wrong bike.


100% AGREE!

I have tires measuring actual 31mm on mine ("SL5") with still good clearance at the chainstays. I couldn't go any bigger because of the brakes but it makes the bike super versatile..


Wow I disagree I tried S-Works turbo 28 (the roads around here are very rough especially in winter) on my 2016 s-works SL5 with zipp 404’s and both front and rear rubbed at the top of the fork and where the brake bolts on the seat stays. They seemed ok on the stand but under load they rubbed. I also tried 28 conti 4000 which from what I gather actually measure 31-32 and they rubbed on the stand. The 28 turbos have plenty of clearance on my SL6 UL which I’ll run as my winter tires and switch back to 26 turbo cottons for summer.

Maybe its because I'm on wide rims, 28mm Open Corsas on Quills (21mm internal) fit fine.

He stated clx32’s... referencing the roval carbon wheels.

Are the clx32s tubulars or clinchers?

Clinchers, as far as I know you can't get them in tubular can you?

I've just seen that you can, not in the U.K. though.

Yeah rim width can effect it greatly. My 15 SW Venge could barely clear 28 Roubaix Pros with older Roval CLX60's 17mm internal width. The same bike has nearly the same clearance with 26 Turbo Cottons on CLX50's with 21mm internal width. A wider rim makes the tire measure wider.

Frame size can also vary the clearance. A 49cm frame will likely have less clearance than a 54 or 56. A co-worker of mine fit 28 Turbos on CLX50's on a 17 Tarmac 52cm.

smaller size may have more clearance in the rear especially bike with flare around rear tire, simply because of steeper seat tube angle of the smaller frame. But that is not certain.

For all around wheels, the CLX50 aren´t too tall?

I used the 64's year round for the past year or so. So the 50's to me feel great, and light. They are the best all around wheel in the Roval line. I've yet to ride the 32's, but I'm sure they feel fast. The more I ride, the more I realize aero>weight to a staggering degree. The new Tarmac is just a great balance of the two. I'll likely replace my 15 Venge with one, but I won't give up my ViAS for one.
