"Over the years I have raced on a variety of alloy and different depth carbon wheelsets. It has always been a challenge finding a carbon wheelset that works well for criteriums, long road races with cross winds, and hill climbs. Last year I purchased the new Rol C50 carbon tubular wheelset 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."     - Mike

“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.”     - Willy
