Yo,

anyone had any close contact with these yet? The specs look dreamy, 24 spokes on the rear, 1295g for the clincher at 21mm wide internal and tubeless ready. Sub 1200g for the tubular. Hoping somebody has ridden some.

Justin

They look good, but not $2400 plus tax good.

I doubt the CLX40 is slower than CLX32 even in low yaw angles...

Where are the data from?

Specialized are claiming the 32 is better than the 40 in every respect.

Release is penned for next week 9/9/16 in the UK.

Roval seem to have a good rep if a little on the light side for real rider reviews.

All 2017 products are up on Specialized website https://www.specialized.com/us/en/compo ... heels/road

The only we thing are patiently waiting for is new Roubaix models.

Velonews have just done a review on the CLX40 (Aug 22nd) and mark it down for poor braking performance.

Unless Specialized have upped their game for the 32's, they're off my list :(

Spec don't make any mention of the braking performance.

My CLX60s had awesome braking with Black Prince pads, just as good as any other wheel I've ridden, better than November, Firecrests, and on par with Enve.

Were they good in wet conditions too? Any deterioration over time with the breaking surface?

What happened to the CLX60's?

Really want to love (and buy) the CLX32 but the dry and wet breaking has to be good.

I've yet to ride any carbon wheel I would consider good in wet conditions, but I rode em fine in some rain. No issues with surface wear.

Sold them because I don't really road race anymore.
