    Enve 4.5 vs ROVAL 64 CLX.

    Has anyone done a comparison?
    Cheap bikes are great... because they're cheap!

    You should get the Enve because they have revolutionized the wheel industry by making the front wheel shorter than the rear and the incredible breakthrough internal spoke nipple design....

    Said no one ever....

    The Roval is tubeless ready, which is nice if you want to run tubeless, but tires are harder to mount and unmount.

    Tires are easier to mount on the Enve 4.5 rims and you can choose any hub you want with a custom build, but it's not tubeless ready.

    Please explain what a "shorter" wheel is.

    Ignore him. He's basically a troll with an unreasonable hatred of ENVE.

    forget both, go for the Easton EC90 Aero 55 (if your frame can fit them). The Easton is incredibly stable in crosswind compared to ANY wheel that is 50mm or deeper AND the Easton are very fast AND tubeless ready AND it's cheaper. Only problem is that the Easton are wide (28.5mm at the brake track and a tad wider at the middle of the body) and some frames will not fit them.
