The course beckons.
Bring the unparalleled performance of tubeless wheels to cyclocross with the Stan's Notubes Iron Cross Comp Road Wheel. Crafted form a strong, yet lightweight 6061 aluminum alloy, this affordable, race-ready, and bombproof set of wheels rolls fast and takes on the rough and rowdy terrain ahead with a smile.
Of course, this wheel uses Stan's trademark Bead Socket Technology (BST), which features low profile sidewalls to provide a better seat for the tire bead and allow for a ton of benefits compared to standard rims with higher sidewalls. When setup as tubeless, BST offers an incredible seal while allowing the tire to hold a greater volume of air than standard rims that place the bead 2-4mm below the edge. This allows the tire to maintain its full shape for a wider, more stable rolling platform than if the same tire were mounted on a standard rim.
BST enables you to run up to 30% lower air pressure than on a standard clincher wheel for more stability, better handling, solid cornering, and better overall control. The lower sidewall substantially minimizes pinch flat risk by reducing the amount of material present for the tube to pinch against. And this translates to less time running to the pit with a flat and more time fighting for position out on the course. Then, faster engaging, CNC-machined Neo hubs with Durasync provide you with instantaneous response for getting up and over just about anything in your way.
