321 Disc Satin

The Specialized Roval 321 Disc is available in this sexy satin finish.​

The Roval 321 is Specialized's first effort at a disc wheel. Not surprisingly it was developed in their "Win" tunnel and comes with claims of seconds saved. The Roval Disc wheels are available in both disc and rim brake versions and sells for $2500.

321 Layup

During a recent tour attended by RoadBikeReview, the Specialized design team showed off the in-house tooling that went into making the first iterations of the Roval 321.​

After rounds of testing, Specialized concluded that clinchers roll faster than tubulars when considering rolling resistance and aerodynamics. The Roval 321 was designed for 26mm clincher tires and it's tubeless compatible.

321 Early Layup

Specialized's early layup consisted of carbon "spokes" and have since moved to a full carbon.​

It has a unique shape and shallow derailleur pocket, but otherwise pushes out as wide as possible. The pocket allows air to hold on until the very last moment, says Specialized.

The valve section is also cut out, allowing space for a floor pump head. The cutout will fit up to a 60mm valve stem, so riders will not have to carry adapter extenders on rides. A slick cover snaps into place, eliminating the need for sticker covers or other homemade solutions.

321 Disc Gloss

The Specialized Roval 321 Disc is also available in a gloss finish.​
