Specialized rapide clx 32 disc 650b carbon/gloss black 650b

  • Item # 30017-8100
$0.00

While the CLX 32 rim is the lightest and most aero in its category there's much more to it than that. It’s a durable 2Bliss Ready and wide-profiled carbon rim that’s ready to take on any adventure. Because of this we developed the CLX 32 650b Disc wheelset. We wanted to create a lightweight wheel that works well with plus-sized tires—one that could also be used on anything from tarmac to gravel. And yes while many opt to use mountain bike wheels for this application there are various advantages to choosing the CLX 32 650b Disc.

First off while most mountain wheels have hubs that are convertible to various axle standards not many are convertible to the 12mm road thru-axle standard. Secondly mountain wheels often come with either a SRAM XD driver a Shimano 11-speed mountain or 10-speed road freehub making them incompatible with contemporary 11-speed road cassettes. And lastly most mountain wheels use standard six-bolt disc brake hubs rather than the Center Lock hubs found on most road applications.

With a 21mm internal width however the CLX 32 650b Disc features an inner width that’s consistent with many XC-oriented mountain bike wheels so it pairs well with 650+ road and gravel tires. And with the 42-47mm tires associated with 650+ the tire and rim interaction is equally as important as the tire itself—too narrow of a rim and you’re left with an overly-rounded profile; too wide and the tread is too squared off. In either situation you're going to get poor handling characteristics.

Each CLX 32 650b Disc set also uses the legendary CeramicSpeed bearings and comes with our padded wheelbag quick-release tubeless plugs and tubeless valves.
