*DEMO SET* Serpentine Carbon X Wheelset, 29", White Industries CLD+ hubs
"I think for a trail bike, having a little bit more of a stiff, precise wheel like the Serpentine is really fun. It makes the bike feel more snappy on trails that I know well." - BikeMag
"There’s something about a reasonably stiff, reasonably light bike that motivates me to push everything a little bit harder, and the Serpentine X contributed to that. They hold a line nicely in corners and in chunk without being unyielding and punishing." - BikeMag
The Serpentine Carbon X is a fast, tough 29-inch trail wheelset. A 30mm internal rim width is ready for wide tires, while its low weight makes for a dependable, nimble and snappy ride. We improve the stiffness, strength and longevity of a wheel by using an asymmetric (ASYM) rim design than improves spoke tension balance by up to 30%.
This build uses hubs from White Industries, our long term hub partner, in Petaluma, California and is laced using 28H, Sapim Race spokes 2x cross for all the assurance you need.
All Astral wheels feature a Tubeless Easy rim profile for painless tire installation and are hand-built by people that care.
NOTE: This wheelset was a demo set used by Bikemag for a product review. They have been ridden and show appropriate signs of use. There are cosmetic markings on the rims, signs of dirt and use. The wheels are 100% functional and will keep our original purchase warranty for the new owner.
