Stan's NoTubes takes the lead in the tubeless world with unmatched tubeless reliability and boundary pushing design. On any given day, you'll find wheels like the Crest 29in Wheelset railing berms at everything from a local cross country race to World Cup events. Made to run light and fast with bombproof durability with updated hubs for 2016, these wheels provide the ideal platform to fly over a cross country course. This wheelset utilizes Stan's trademark Bead Socket Technology BST, which features low profile sidewalls that provide a better seat for the tire bead and allow for a heap of benefits compared to standard rims with higher sidewalls. When setup as tubeless, BST provides an exceptional seal while allowing the tire to hold a greater volume of air than with standard rims. This interface lets the tire maintain its full shape for a wider, more stable rolling platform than if the same tire were mounted on a standard rim. pWhen paired with BST, a tubeless setup's ability to run up to 30% lower air pressure than clinchers results in exceptional tire stability, better handling, solid cornering, and better overall control. If you prefer clinchers, these rims are compatible with them, and the lower sidewall drastically reduces pinch flat risk by reducing the amount of material present for the tube to pinch against. This means less time sitting in the dust wrestling with a flat at the side of the trail and more time shredding your favorite loops. Stan's laces the Crest rims to its all new Neo hub set featuring smooth spinning, oversized chrome bearings and stiff, swaged axles. The Neo holds the bearings at a wider stance for a claimed threefold increase in strength compared to standard hub designs. It also boasts 4 precision pawls that simultaneously engage a forged steel 36t ratchet ring for snappy engagement. Stan's builds in its new SealLock end caps for easy installation and Slip Fit axle ends for easy conversion. The Stan's NoTubes Crest 29in Whee...
