Roval Alpinist CLX - tubeless?

Can I go tubeless with Alpinist CLX rims?
I love the specialized cotton tires butů.

Officially CLX no, CLX II yes. Unofficially the debate rages on.

There's a reason that they were revised relatively quickly -

This became apparent in 2019 while Peter Sagan was testing the then-still-to-be-released Alpinist CLX at a Bora-Hansgrohe training camp. Roval says the three-time world champion jumped a roundabout, came up short and impacted the curb. The result was a broken carbon rim with a tubeless tyre that blew off during the impact.
