Specialized sponsored riders appear to be sporting a new set of wheels, spotted at both the Vuelta Femenina - which finished on Sunday, and the ongoing Giro d'Italia

The current racing stock for Specialized sponsored teams includes the 50mm Roval Rapide CLX II, and the Roval Alpinist CLX II, designed for the hilliest of stages. Both feature DT Swiss Aerolite T-head aluminium spokes, and Roval's own hubs.
