CX25 - Cyclocross Wheelset. Alloy, Tubular.
Hand-built with 2x2x2x lacing to world-renowned SAPIM CX-Ray spokes, the lightweight and sure-footed CX25 won a CX National Championship in its first year. Whether you’re racing cyclocross or dirt road races, this wheelset is a worthy performer.
The CX25 is in great demand from 'cross racers and roadies who want the ride of a mid-profile, hand-built alloy tubular wheelset, ideal as a cyclocross wheelset. These cyclocross wheels come combined with the latest wheel technology and SAPIM CX-Ray spokes.
The CX25 has a 23mm wide rim to match perfectly with cyclocross or road tubular tire profiles. The rim has enough aero profile to add stiffness, avoid mud build up, and track straight through mud and deep sand. One ride and you'll understand why wheelsets like this are preferred by many experienced racers.
The CX25 features our own ROL hubs, carefully designed to minimize spoke stress and tension differentials, with SAPIM's sought-after CX-Ray stainless steel spokes. Like all our wheels, the CX25 is hand-laced and trued to perfection by ROL’s U.S. wheelbuilders.

“We had been training and racing on a variety of clincher wheels, such as Roval Pavé SL and DT Swiss R1800 with a tubeless set-up. We got tired of pinch flats and the weight and decided to go to tubulars. What a difference when we got our ROL CX25 alloy tubular wheelsets! We noticed immediately when we unboxed them that they were very light weight, spun easily, and came with extra spokes. The finish was flawless. We glued up one set with Challenge Fango's and the other with Tufo Primus tires. We had no trouble gluing them up using just Vittoria Mastik. Our first ride impressions were that we just felt faster! We noticed how well we could corner with them They were stiff and tracked very well. After a hard season of cyclocross racing, including a race crash that resulted in my wife being hospitalized, they are still as true as when we got them out of the box. We would highly recommend this wheelset to anyone who wants to get the advantage of tubular CX wheels but don't have megabucks to shell out. You can easily afford two sets of these for the price of one set of the competitors and have your mud tires as well as your dry or all-around tires ready for CX season! We not only race on these wheels, but also have no reservations about using them as our daily trainers. They are just too fun to not ride!” - Richard and Maurine
