These are for those XL epics that demand a little more, riders that go all-day (or night), those for whom 32-35mm tires have become “road slicks” and 2.4 inch clearance sounds like an option they can’t pass up. When “mixed-surface” rides mean all types of trails and dirt and pavement are just for cars, you need to ride the Outback.
These hoops are for adventuring, and that means getting out there - leaving the traffic behind, picking a journey and riding through to the end – be that the pub downtown, a campsite at sunset or the finish line, days from now. The Great Divide Route. The Oregon Outback. Colorado Trail. Or that rugged road off your commute that you’ve always been curious about. Because single track looks enticing, even on drop bars, and rough roads lead to good things.
The 25mm internal rim is matched with your choice of three great hub options. 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%. On the trail, this translates to balanced handling and precision steering you can rely on in even the most demanding conditions. They’re hand built by pro wheel builders and hardcore riders that know first-hand that a good adventure requires 100% commitment and gear up to the task.
Offered in both 700c/29” and 650b/27.5” options with three premium hub to choose from, there’s a perfect build for every rider. All Astral Cycling wheels are hand-build in Eugene, Oregon and feature Tubeless Easy rims you can easily set up at home.
