Anyone have anymore details on these, primarily availability? I excited about these as could drop some weight off my new supersix disc.
I pre-ordered a set and was told they will be available at the end of May or June.
Can you order without knowing exact details?

I actually wanted to order the CLX50 with my new frame (I got the frame end of January), but the CLX50 were not available anymore and was told that they would not come back in stock. My dealer offered me to pre-order the new wheels (according to him called CLX Rapide ... or perhaps CLX Rapide 50/60) knowing that only preliminary info was available, however he saw them himself at a presentiation and he already had the price list. So I decided to pre-order.

I've just noted new wheelsets listed from Roval on the UCI list of approved wheels issued 03 March 2020:

https://www.uci.org/docs/default-source ... 00368f_212

Listed wheels are:

- TERRA CL 32 mm rim 24 spokes
- TERRA CLX 32 mm rim 21 spokes
- RAPIDE CL 51 mm rim 21 spokes
- RAPIDE CLX 51 mm rim 18 spokes
- ALPINIST CL 33 mm rim 24 spokes
- ALPINIST CLX 33 mm rim 21 spokes

Looks like the CLX 50 replacement will be called the Rapide CLX? and the CLX 32 the Alpinist

Rapide CLX: I guess they mention the front wheel only (18 spokes)? The Rapide CLX rear wheel is supposed to be around 60mm.

Same as they do with current generation of CL/CLX wheels, only change that they upped amount of spokes for Rim brake version from 16 to 18 (front).
Interesting part is that they upped CL33 to 24 spokes (front) too, which seems quite odd for Roval (new hubs?)

lots of chatter around the beads letting the tire go a little to easy in tubeless form during a flat.... hopefully that is addressed eventhough I have not personally experienced that.

I've had vittoria Corsa G+ tyres come off the front wheel of my CLX32's twice. However, only when really stressing the brakes with hot rims. Wild ride at speed both times! The tyre rim combo was NOT good. I ended up switching to Mavic Cosmic Ultimate SL's as I just lost trust on the anchors.

This said, I loved the CLX32's otherwise. Rolled really well.

I've now switched to a Disc Supersix EVO 3 and am in the market for new disc wheels. I'm waiting to see what happens with these new Rovals as the CLX 50 replacement would be perfect for me.

It doesn't need to be specified on the chart, other wheels only say Disc or DB or whatever if it is part of the name of the wheel. In this case, the Terra CLX is already out there and we know it doesn't have 'disc' in the name because it's a disc brake only wheelset that doesn't need to be distinguished from rim brake brethren.

It'll be the same with the others, they are disc brake wheels but they don't need to have disc in the name since disc will be the only option anyway.

50/60 clincher lighter then clx32... and still wide.. idk man. Best of luck to Roval... I'm sticking with my CLX32/50/64/321
lighter than CLX50 db ... not CLX32
someone said "lighter then clx32". no question mark , so assumed it was a statement. That would be something. Lighter then 50, I can see that happening although I think CLX50's are not bad.
CLX50 not bad? Is there a lighter 50mm deep wheelset? Hunt has already demonstrated that the lower cost CL50 is as aero as most others' 60mm+ wheels.
