The Outback is designed for long-distance travel on dirt – from xc mtb epics to XL gravel rigs and . 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. 

Our Approach hubset is built for Astral Cycling by long-time partner White Industries. It includes the same internal mechanisms as their classic CLD hub, but features a bomber heat-treated steel freehub body at a nominal 28 gram weight sacrifice.

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