Roval has expanded its range of Terra components to include new wheelsets and handlebars, making off-road pursuits with drop-handlebar bikes all the more exciting.
“Terra wheels and components were created to to free your ride in a highly textured world. Our Terra product line brings leading-edge performance to the diverse needs of mixed terrain riders. To that end, we took a long look at what these tough environments demand,” says Roval.
The new Terra CL utilizes the same super-light, incredibly tough rim as our flagship Terra CLX model. Constructed with a 33mm deep rim with a 25mm inner width, Terra CL utilizes a hooked bead and comes taped and tubeless-ready, allowing them to accommodate a wide variety of tires, from 28c road rubber to singletrack capable 47c monster tires when the pavement fades away.
Also, in a nod to accessibility, durability, the Terra CL feature DT Swiss 350 hubs laced with DT Swiss Competition Straightpull spokes are spec’d for ease of service.
Taking the notion of flagship performance and workhorse dependability one step further, not to mention easier on the wallet, Roval offers the Terra C.
The Terra C shares the same hub and spoke architecture as the Terra CL, but utilizes a new rim layup process involving Resin Transfer Molding to ensure maximum strength and material performance, matching the internal and external spec of both the Terra CLX and CL with only a slight weight penalty. The end result is an incredibly tough set of wheels ready for all-terrain duties.
The new Roval Terra handlebar offers exceptional comfort in demanding conditions thanks to 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 have an ergonomic “egg” shape with a shallow drop and short reach to optimize comfort and control when riding in the drops, along with a 12-degree flare that starts in the drops and opens up at the ends to further bolster control, alignment and comfort.
Integrated internal Di2 routing was also added to create a clean and tidy appearance.
