Brand Information(click to expand)
Roval was manufactured by Perrin Courson.

Christoph Ulbrich: "In the early 1970 years ... Perrin et Courson bought the Pélissier brand. As they operated together with Maillard a combined office of development the well-known Pélissier high flange hubs were also marketed under Perrin-Maillard." ... Sources: -Bernard Chaussinand: L'Industrie du Cycle à Saint_ètienne et dans le bassin de la Loire - L'industrie du Cycle

Considered to be the first 'factory' wheels. Their innovative design were decades ahead of its time and had obvious influence on contemporary designs.  Using straight pull spokes and hidden nipples Roval wheels where available in different spoke counts as well as track or road versions. The hubs were manufactured by Maillard.
