    WHAT IT’S FOR, WHY IT’S GREAT
    Designed to handle everything from backcountry rock gardens to heavy days at the bike park, the Traverse SL is the definitive all-mountain wheel. A super-light, super-tough carbon fiber rim is combined with refined and ultra-dependable hub and spoke technology for a wheel that can conquer any mountain.

    MODERN TIRES DEMAND MODERN RIMS
    The zero-bead-hook rim bed of the Traverse SL has a generous 30mm internal width. This offers better sidewall support with modern wider tires, leading to less tire deformation and squirm—especially when cornering or jumping—resulting in more predictable and surefooted handling.

    SOMETIMES TRIED AND TRUE IS THE BEST WAY FORWARD
    Roval uses J-bend spokes on the Traverse SL. For a wheel that’s chock-full of forward thinking this may seem out of step, but bear with them—J-bend spokes are strong, proven, and available just about anywhere. And these aren’t just any spokes. DT Swiss Competition spokes are the most refined spokes you could hope to hold a wheel together with. The best. No compromise.

    THIS STEP FLANGE HUB IS SUBTLE WIZARDRY
    Look closely here. Notice how many of the spokes run “head-in”, meaning that the spokes pull from the outside of the hub, maximizing the wheel’s bracing angle. This increases strength and improves handling. Additionally, the angle the spokes exit the hub is such that there is less load on each spoke where it crosses another, in turn eliminating a notorious spoke breakage stress point.

    TRICKNESS HIDES IN THE DETAILS
    You’ll find the same length spokes throughout the Traverse SL wheelset – drive side or non-drive, front or rear, they’re all the same length spokes. 28 of them per wheel. Strength and durability are front and center, weight is still incredibly low, and in the rare case that you go harder than your wheels, replacement spokes can be easily sourced just about anywhere, and your wheels can be easily serviced.
