Wildness Awaits

The Outback is designed for long-distance travel on dirt – from xc mtb epics to XL gravel rigs. The 25mm internal width is built for adventuring, be that on xc mtb trails or endless gravel. 

We’ve improved the stiffness, strength and longevity of all our gravel and trail wheels by using an asymmetric (ASYM) rim design than improves spoke tension balance by up to 30%. 

Offered in both 700c/29” and 650b/27.5” options. 

The Stage 1 hubset is custom made for Astral Cycling to provide a reliable, strong and light wheelset option. They’ll see you through all your adventures without breaking the bank.

All Astral Cycling wheels are hand-build in Eugene, Oregon and feature Tubeless Easy rims you can easily set up at home.
