“After reading the reviews on these wheels, I decided to give the Race SL a try. At this price, it was worth a shot anyway. Well, I must say I was blown away by the difference that made [from my Mavic Ksyrium Elite] on the first ride. Really cool set of wheels, feels like riding an aero bike. I only wished I had switched sooner. I will not ride anything else from now on. The wider rim adds stability, feels like being on rail. Any casual rider thinking about upgrading their Ksyrium should ditch Mavic and try these.”
“I am so pleased with these wheels! I finally got to ride on them this weekend. So much faster than the OEM wheels. These babies climb. I could not believe the pick up in speed from past rides on the route I ran today. Super happy customer here! Smooth, fast, and stiff.”
“Sean, I just wanted to let you know that the wheels are outstanding! It feels like peddling on air...man these things are FAST, FAST, FAST. Any opportunity I get to let others know about the wheels, I'll do it. It was a pleasure meeting you and making the purchase.”
“The C50 tubulars were my first set of carbon wheels, and they have been fantastic. Not only are they a great value, but none of the reservations that I had going in- crosswind performance, braking performance, etc.- have turned out to be the least bit of a problem. The 50 mm depth is perfect for all around riding; I have a set of pretty nice aluminum clinchers, but I have yet to even put them on my new bike because the C50s are so enjoyable to ride. They really do combine a stiff connectedness to the drivetrain with a smooth ride that allows them to climb and accelerate quickly while at the same time providing a suppleness that aluminum wheels really can't match. I would recommend these to anyone, and I don't believe that the performance of these wheels can be matched by anything within five hundred dollars of this price point.”
"Over the years I have raced on a variety of Alloy and different depth carbon wheel sets. It has always been a challenge finding a carbon wheel set that works well for criteriums, long road races with cross winds, and hill climbs. Last year I purchased the new Rol C50 carbon tubular wheel set and they are now my only race wheels. The 50mm rim depth is shallow enough to allow me to accelerate efficiently out the turns in a criterium race, while deep enough to provide the aerodynamic advantage for road races. And yet the wheels are still light enough for the hilliest of races and rides. The C50's delivered every time at every race last year and I could not be happier with these wheels."
“Best high profile carbon wheel for the money on the market!”
Absolutely love the C45R tubulars! Their performance is better than any other wheel I have ridden.
“The C45Rs feel incredibly stiff laterally which suites my aggressive climbing and sprinting style, and they seem to corner noticeably better than any wheel I have ever ridden, tubular or clincher. I think this is due to the wider rim which allows for a wider contact patch for the tire. The vibration dampening qualities are another obvious difference and they perform much better than what I thought might be just exaggerated marketing hype. I am very impressed with these wheels so far, and did I mention that they look beautiful. Thank you for a great product Sean, and for keeping me from making a big mistake. Your loyal and enthusiastic new customer and believer.”
“Many who race bicycles say that it’s only the engine that counts when getting across the finish line….but it’s also the wheels you ROL. Two sets of my ROLs have carried to many podium finishes either in road or crit racing. My ROL R Series C45R are unbeatable when it comes to the total package, Corima rims with the indestructible DT Swiss HUB. I have total confidence when racing in the cross winds on a 45 MM rim!”
“I have been on the C25R wheels for 9 months and they are nothing short of excellent. They climb and descend superbly, as I have ridden them throughout the Colorado high country. Light, stiff, responsive with great acceleration. The perfect wheel!”
