    WHAT IT’S FOR, WHY IT’S GREAT
    Smashing down the cost-of-entry barrier, the C 38 brings carbon fiber high performance to the real world. It’s a versatile all-rounder equally at home crushing gravel washboards and summiting alpine passes. Exceptional aerodynamics, modern 21mm width, tubeless-ready, durable and lightweight, the C 38 outperforms wheels costing twice as much.

    MILLIMETERS THAT MATTER
    Wider tires roll faster, and are more comfortable, than narrow tires. The tubeless ready, 21-mm internal width of the C 38 is optimized for use with modern, wider tires, providing them with the right amount of sidewall support to facilitate surefooted handling in all conditions. At a depth of 38mm, the C 38 rim is a great handling, lively climbing, robust all-round performer that also aerodynamically outperforms many deeper, aero-specific rims.

    PREMIUM QUALITY HUBS AND SPOKES
    With two main goals in mind—long life and easy serviceability—Roval looked to Switzerland. The C 38 uses an ultra-reliable, rapid engagement DT 350 star-ratchet freehub for smooth power transmission and long-term dependability. Similarly, DT Swiss Competition spokes were chosen to lace hub to rim, and finished with brass Pro-Lock nipples.

    HAND BUILT QUALITY THROUGHOUT
    The premium components that make up this wheel are assembled together into the final product by hand. They are laced, tensioned, checked, and tensioned again by practiced, professional craftsmen: an added layer of quality control that machines cannot match.
