roval terra c wheelset review

“Engineered to be as diverse as the ever-expanding terrain drop bar bikes are exploring, the Terra family introduces a suite of new best-in-class products to expand your ride beyond the pavement. Welcome to Terra 2021. With multiple new wheels and cockpit options, a system approach to tackling the trail less traveled.” – Roval Components

Roval Terra C Wheelset

Taking the notion of flagship performance and workhorse dependability one step further, and easier on the wallet, meet Terra C. Sharing the same hub and spoke architecture as the Terra CL, but paired with an entirely new rim layup. The rims on the Terra C are crafted using Resin Transfer Molding; maximizing strength and material performance. Matching the internal and external spec of both the Terra CLX and CL, with only a slight weight penalty coming in at just over 1600 grams. The end result is an incredibly tough set of wheels ready for the rough stuff.

Roval Terra CL Wheelset

The new Terra CL utilizes the same super-light, incredibly tough rim as our flagship Terra CLX model. That’s right. The SAME rim. Constructed with a 33mm deep rim with an astonishing 25mm inner width, Terra CL utilizes a hooked bead and comes taped and tubeless-ready. When the pavement fades away, Terra wheels can handle a wide variety of tires, from 28c road rubber to singletrack capable 47c monster tires, Terra can handle it all. In a nod to accessibility, durability, DT Swiss 350 hubs laced with DT Swiss Competition Straightpull spokes are spec for ease of service.

Terra Handlebar

The new Roval Terra handlebar offers exceptional comfort in demanding conditions. Utilizing an optimized blend of carbon fiber and a design that takes into account the physiological demands placed on hands and arms in mixed-terrain riding. The bar tops are an ergonomic “egg” shape with a shallow drop and short reach to optimize comfort and control when riding in the drops, and a 12-degree flare starts in the drops and opens up the ends of the bars for clean control alignment and optimal all-terrain comfort. Integrated internal Di2 routing adds a clean finish to this all-road superstar.
