Disc brakes are coming on strong in Cyclocross, but the choice of wheels is lagging behind. Our first CX disc specific wheelset, is a mid-level 28h clincher, aimed at the club rider and racer. We have designed these wheels to work perfectly with our ‘Crosslight Pro6‘ frameset and they are a great partner for The ‘Decade Tripster‘ fast commuter too.
We have worked with ‘Freedom/WTB’ on the true disc-specific rim profile and these wheels use the same high-tension triple butted, stainless spokes and alloy nipples as our Maxlight wheels.
Rims: Clincher. 24mm width, 22mm depth, true disc-specific profile, High Strength alloy.

“Crosslight Evo 5 cyclocross bike. It’s an unashamedly hardcore full-on CX racer…It reeks of pain and suffering and we assume it’s that lovely shade of green to camouflage all the mucus you’ll expel onto the top tube.”
"Tough, disc-brake compatible cyclocross wheels easily able to withstand knocks and bumps, super-smooth bearings… they look good too"
"...they are a lively, tough and well-built wheelset at a great price".
