650b bikes are all about fun and nimble handling, and the Specialized Stout XC 650b wheels delivers on this in spades—no matter if you're just getting started or you're a seasoned trail rider. It's been built tough to meet the rigors of mountain biking head-on, while the nimble wheel size guarantees a good time. It features a durable, double-wall alloy rim construction that adds strength without stacking on the weight. And to ensure that you'll be able to stop once you get motoring, the wheels are both disc-compatible. High value just met high performance. - Disc-compatible hubs can also be used with traditional rim brakes. - Double-wall rims are strong and durable. - Machined braking surface creates superior stopping power in any condition. - Stainless spokes won't rust, easing long-term maintenance.
Designed to handle everything from backcountry rock gardens to heavy days at the bike park, the Traverse is the definitive all-mountain wheel.

With the edition of the 148mm rear and 110mm front axle widths, the Roval Traverse Fattie 650b 148 mountain bike wheels went from nimble to downright stiff, traction machines. The reason is behind this simple: Aside from a lightweight, bombproof E5 alloy construction, by combining a wide, 29mm rim with wider hub flanges, these wheels dramatically increase stiffness, stability, and traction. You see, the extra width allows for more tire volume, which means more suppleness in the ride quality. And not only this, but the ample width also better supports the tire, meaning that you'll experience less "burping" when riding tubeless. These aren't just one-trick ponies, however. At the front hub, you'll get a 15x110mm thru-axle (end cap options included), and at the rear, the hub features DT Swiss internals for lightening-fast engagement and acceleration. And to top everything off, these wheels are hand-built to ensure the perfect tension and a long lifespan. Please note that the 148 version is exclusively designed for use with bikes designed with 110x15mm front axle and 148mm rear axle standards.
