The Grail Team Disc Wheelset from Stan's NoTubes doesn't care if your slogging miles on the pavement, adventuring on seldom-used gravel roads, or hopping barriers on the CX course. It can handle all of those disciplines in spade along with the various tires and pressures that accompany the different requirements. Stan's renowned tubeless reliability adds confidence and performance that will enhance any ride.
Stan's signature tubeless technology, BST, is utilized on its mountain bike wheels and on this Grail wheelset, this design is tweaked slightly. These wheels have a BST-R rim profile, optimizing the interface with tires ranging from 25mm to 40mm wide. The BST-R shape is designed to specifically handle narrower tires and higher tire pressures than what a standard BST rim will see. BST-R rims feature low profile sidewalls that provide a better interface for a tubeless tire bead. When setting up as such, BST provides an exceptional seal and allows the tire to balloon up with a greater volume of air than standard rims that place the bead 2-4mm below the rim's edge. This results in a tire that can achieve its truer shape for a larger and more stable rolling profile than if the same tire were mounted on a non-BST rim.
BST also lets you safely run up to 30% less air pressure versus a standard clincher wheel setup resulting in more stability, better handling, more confident cornering, and less rolling resistance. If you need to channel your inner curmudgeon or if you manage to flat on your ride, Stan's rims are fully compatible with standard tubes, and the lower sidewall helps reduce the likelihood that a hard strike results in the rim pinching the tube. We can't think of anyone who doesn't appreciate flat reductions that come without any tradeoff.
That excellent Grail Team Disc BST-R rim is laced to the race-proven Neo hub set featuring silky smooth-spinning bearings that roll on a stiff, strong, and precisely ground axle. The Neo places the bearings at a wide stance which offers more strength and support. The ten-degree engagement uses four pawls and a forged steel 36t ratchet ring giving it quick pick up when launching an attack or getting back on the gas after a run-up, all the while minimizing drag while coasting. For maximum compatibility, the hubs use Stan's SealLock, Slip-Fit endcaps for easy conversion and futureproofing. Rims come sealed with Stan's yellow rim tape and Presta valves installed, ready for tubeless use.
