Finding a lightweight set of cross country wheels with big hit durability is akin to finding a grail amongst a sea of imposters in an ancient knight's tomb. The Stan's NoTubes Crest MK3 27. 5in Boost Wheelset puts and end to the search and builds on its EX predecessor with wider, lower profile rims for a stronger platform paired with today's trend towards beefy tires and unbeatable tubeless reliability. The Crest MK3 utilizes Stan's trademark Bead Socket Technology (BST), which feature low profile sidewalls to provide a better tire bead seat and a host of benefits compared to standard rims with higher sidewalls. When setup tubeless, BST yields an exceptional seal and allows the tire to hold more air volume in contrast to standard rims that hold the bead an additional 2-4mm below the edge. With BST, the tire maintains its full shape for a wider, more stable rolling platform than if the same tire were mounted to a standard rim of equal width. Pairing BST features with the ability to run up to 30% lower air pressure in the tubeless system than a standard tube setup results in exceptional tire stability, better handling, solid cornering, and improved control out on the course. These rims are also compatible with standard tubes, with the lower sidewall drastically reducing pinch flat risk by reducing the amount of protruding material for the tube to pinch against. This means less time sitting in the dirt wrestling with a flat at the side of the trail and more time out on your favorite loops. Stan's laces the Crest MK3 rims to its Neo hub set, which boasts smooth-spinning, oversized chrome bearings that glide on a strong, stiff, swaged axle. The Neo holds the bearings at a widened stance for a claimed threefold increase in strength compared to standard hub designs and boasts 4 precision pawls that simultaneously engage a forged steel 36-tooth ratchet ring for snappy engagement. Stan's incorporates its new SealLock end caps for easy installation and Slip-Fit axle en...
