Kinesis Crosslight CX Disc wheelset - Shimano
This 3rd generation, lighter, stronger CXdisc wheelset is a real advance on previous versions and has a completely re-profiled rim section, with eyeletted spoke holes and pinned joint. These new wheels are 151g lighter for the front and 94g lighter at the rear, saving a total of 245g where you will really notice it.
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.
The 11spd freehub is interchangeable to allow the use of Shimano or Campagnolo gearing (will accept a 9, 10 or 11 speed cassette).
This is a true disc-specific rim profile, not a modified rim-brake section and these wheels use the same high-tension triple butted, stainless spokes and alloy nipples as our Maxlight wheels.

"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".
“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.”
