Hi my friends. I'm looking at a Sworks SL6 Sagan Edition and the owner gave me the option to choose one of these two wheels... Which one would you choose?

From what I was able to research, the Sagan wheels have Ceramicspeed bearings and can use tubeless, while the Rapide have greater internal measurement, but use common bearings and do not allow tubeless...

+1 for the CLX because of aero performance and good weight for a deep wheelset. A lot of people have good experience with tubeless on those but it is discouraged by Roval. I use them with TPU's for low weight where it matters.

Plenty of information around this forum on running the original CLX tubeless.

I'd choose the CLX - it's the more modern and faster wheelset. Pretty light, too!
