The Astral Solstice is a great choice for a lightweight workhorse. An aluminum rim that weighs in at just 425 grams, the Solstice comes in markedly lighter than other alloy rims in a similar price range while maintaining a sturdy and reliable design made for a wide-range of uses.
Astral rims utilize Rolf Prima’s Delta Rim Technology for optimal rim shape and to improve airflow and stability. This is achieved through increased width and sidewall shaping, which results in more than just a faster profile, it also adds additional tire support which improves cornering. The sidewall to nose shape is designed to minimize wind buffeting for better speed and handling in all riding conditions.
All Astral rims are Tubeless Easy: the rim profiles have been optimized for easy tire mounting with a deep center channel or "drop channel" and bead seat diameters dialed in for ease of inflation and secure mounting
These rims are drilled for external nipples, which makes truing easier as the tire, tube, and tape do not have to be removed.
This is the black with machined-sidewall rim brake version available in 20, 24, and 28 spoke hole counts (disc specific version also available).
