Ready to rip.

The Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 27.5 inch wheelset is durable and responsive, which is precisely what you need for your mid-wheeled mountain machine. With paired spokes that impart fantastic balance to the wheel, and a proven design, they’re XC race light, while being plenty tough for every day trail duty as well.

The rim is extruded with an I-beam down the middle, which is machined down into tabs, which are then drilled to accommodate the barrels which hold the spoke ends. This design is not only aesthetically unique, but it eliminates the need for traditional rim drillings, which weaken the rim. The secondary benefit is that this construction means you no longer need to run rim tape, which saves weight and makes for a dead simple tubeless conversion. The paired spoke design makes for a balanced, strong wheel.

At the center of the Cobalt wheels is a set of custom Crank Brothers straight pull hubs. The front hub comes with end caps for a 15mm axle, and is adaptable to a 9mm quick release axle. The rear wheel is similarly adaptable, with the 12x142mm rear thru axle being convertible to 9x135mm. The rear hub runs on a three-pawl design, which provides quick engagement, and the bombproof reliability you need.

The Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 27.5 inch wheelset is available with a 15mm front and 12x142mm rear hub, and in the color Black/red.
