Stan's NoTubes Crest MK3 29in Boost Wheelset pairs lightweight speed and big hit durability to rock any cross country course. The new MK3 platform sees the internal rim width bump out two millimeters from its EX predecessor to support the trend towards burlier tires, with an even lower profile for unbeatable tubeless reliability. These wheels will spin up fast and weather the bumps to deliver you to the end of the trail flat-free and looking forward to the next adventure.

The Crest utilizes Stan's trademark Bead Socket Technology (BST), featuring low profile sidewalls that provide a better tire bead seat and allow for a host of benefits compared to standard rims with higher sidewalls. When setup as tubeless, BST provides an exceptional seal and allows the tire to hold more air volume in contrast to standard rims that hold the bead and extra 2-4mm below the edge. With BST, the tire maintains its full shape for a wider, more stable rolling platform than if the same tire were mounted on a standard rim.

Pairing BST features with the ability to run up to 30% lower air pressure in the tubeless system than a standard tube setup results in exceptional tire stability, better handling, solid cornering, and improved control out on the course. These rims are also compatible with standard tubes, with the lower sidewall drastically reducing pinch flat risk by reducing the amount of protruding material for the tube to pinch against. This means less time sitting in the dirt wrestling with a flat at the side of the trail and more time out on your favorite loops.

Stan's laces the Crest MK3 rims to its Neo hub set, which features smooth-spinning, oversized chrome bearings that glide on a stiff, strong, swaged axle. The Neo holds the bearings at a wider stance for a claimed threefold increase in strength compared to standard hub designs and boasts 4 precision pawls that simultaneously engage a forged steel 36-tooth ratchet ring for snappy engagement. Stan's incorporates its new SealLock end caps for easy installation and Slip-Fit axle ends for easy conversion.

The Stan's NoTubes Crest MK3 29in Boost Wheelset comes complete with Stan's yellow rim tape and valves already installed for tubeless use - just add your favorite tubeless-ready tire, Stan's award-winning sealant, and air. It's available with a 15 x 110mm Boost front axle and a 148 x 12mm Boost rear axle combination with either a Shimano/SRAM or SRAM XD freehub.

These wheels are great. Great wheels for the price and really light for an aluminum wheel. The new rim design has stiffened up the wheel and made them stronger when bombing down descents. They are really easy to setup tubeless. Great hubs laced to some great rims.
