The Roval Control SL 29 Torque Tube 148 wheels are nearly identical to the Control SL 29s, with the only exception being at the front hub. With the Torque Tube 148mm variant, you receive all of the benefits that Boost spacing offers while continuing to run a RockShox RS-1 fork. By increasing the width of the rear hub flange, and in turn, increasing frame clearance and stiffness, you obtain a stiffer, stronger, and more durable system at a minor weight penalty. If you're running an RS-1, you'll get hand-built, ultralight carbon perfection with a Zero Bead Hook design. This design pairs perfectly with tubeless tires, while also increasing both strength and impact-resistance. Meanwhile, the rims have been laced via DT Swiss Competition Race spokes to strong alloy hubs with DT Swiss 240 internals (rear only) that serve-up lightening-fast engagement and acceleration.
