Gonna build up a Tarmac sl6 disc in the quick step colors (I'm from Belgium)
My shop just called me that the ROVAL CLX50 aren't available until June/July. What is available are de CL50 disc and CLX32 disc.
In what I have sawn on the website of specialized is that:
- the price difference between them is 700 euros = 862,14 US Dollar's
- the hub in the CL is a dt-swiss 350 and in the clx32 a dt-swiss 240

I haven't found a real review about the cl50
Wich one would you choose between the two?

Go for the CLX32, good all round Roval wheelset.

I agree, I think 32's look good for an everyday, all-around wheelset. Frame isn't super aero, so you don't need super deep wheels, and they should be light enough for climbing and not kill you on windy days.

The 50 is the sweet spot between the 64 and 32. I have the first two in CLX and had a 32, but swapped it for Meilenstein's. Will get another pair.

240 hubs on the clx32 are nice. Also they have the ceramicspeed bearings.

I really like my CLX32’s. Best all round wheels I’ve ridden. Personally though I’d rather they were £300 cheaper and ditch the ceramic speed bearings.
