First came the CLX 64. Then the 32s. And after racking up multiple wins in Grand Tours, Worlds, and everything in between, Specialized knew that their best bet was to take the line to new heights, or well, new depths. They needed to design one wheel that was a true quiver killer. One wheel that had all the aerodynamic benefits of the 64 in a package that climbed like the 32, and that’s where the all-new CLX 50 comes in.
Why discs you ask? With a disc-specific rims, the brake track is gone, making for a stronger, more impact-resistant rim. This way, you get a disc-specific carbon layup that optimizes stiffness, a weight as close to its rim-brake brethren as possible, and incredible brake modulation and power in all conditions.
This combines to give a complete, superior wheel system. It all amounts to a 50mm-deep, 1415-gram clincher disc wheelset that's not only ~300 grams lighter than the competition’s similar depth wheel, but is also measurably faster in every conceivable test than each wheel in its category.
