Description

The legendary Stans Crest rim is even better for 2016. Wider and even lower profile, the new Stans Crest rim MK3 sheds weight for faster acceleration and climbing. WideRight 23mm internal width increases tyre volume for improved stability with wider tyres. Inspired by our carbon technology, the entirely new rim shape adds strength and virtually eliminates the chance of a tyre pinch flat. Refined over the past 15 years, our Bead Socket Technology offers the most trusted tubeless seal in the business, making the Stans Crest MK3 the best choice for lightweight, tubeless XC performance.

Strada says: the Stans Crest rim (MK3) has been completely re-designed. The nipple hole is small and we think they work best with the high quality DT Squorx alloy nipple, which although more expensive does fit the very well. Hubs: We can build these with Hope Pro 4Hope RS4DT Swiss 350 and DT Swiss 240s and Chris King ISO. We usually build these 28 hole 2 cross lacing with bladed black spokes. If you are a bigger rider then we may go to 32 hole 3 cross lacing.
