Wildness Awaits

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. 

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