The Astral Wanderlust rim is a great choice for a “crossover” rim that can handle all-road, cyclocross, and adventure builds. While designed as an adventure/gravel rim that is wide enough for 2.5” tires, it is still perfectly at home with a 28c tire. The asymmetric spoke bed keeps spoke tensions more balanced between the left and right sides, ensuring a wheel that holds its true more effectively. Its bombproof tubeless design make it a great choice for the cyclocross racer or adventure cyclist looking to avoid tubulars, allowing for quick tire changes in varying 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 the bead seat diameters have been dialed in for ease of inflation and secure mounting. In addition these rims are drilled for external nipples, which makes truing easier as the tire, tube, and tape do not have to be removed. This matte black rim comes in at a respectable 450 grams and is available in 24 and 28 hole counts.
