Work hard, play harder

The Backbone is sturdy 30mm internal width trail wheel, built to make you smile. The “fun-factor” of 27.5 wheels is un-matched. Maximize the ride with this no-frills, ripper-ready wheelset. Uneven spoke tension from one side of the wheel to the other limits the stiffness, strength and longevity of a wheel and our asymmetric (ASYM) rim design improves the balance by up to 30% versus a symmetric build for many hub configurations. On the trail, this translates to balanced handling and precision steering you can rely on in even the ruggedest of terrain.

Drilled for external nipples. Disc specific rims. 

All Astral rims are Tubeless Easy for tire installation that you can set up with a floor pump.

Add a nipple kit for an easier build.
