Updated to be lighter and faster than ever, the Stans Crest MK3 27. 5in Wheel delivers the swift-rolling efficiency and precise tracking desired for cross-country riding and racing. The Crest MK3 has always been a favorite among XC racers and riders, namely due to its optimal strength-to-weight at an attractive price that leaves room for future bike upgrades. The newest version improves upon this legacy with 6069 aluminum alloy giving you dependable strength and lightweight rolling efficiency, regardless if you're hammering away on race day or ripping a scintillating lap around your local forest loop. Its 23-millimeter internal width optimally supports tires in the range of 2. 0 to 2. 25 inches without deforming the rubber into a bulbous or bell-like shape. This range is perfectly suited for the typical XC tire, meaning it caters to riders preferring rolling speed over high-volume support and all-out grip. For greater weight savings, the front wheel has a 28-spoke count, which is slightly reduced over the burlier 32-spoke rear. Both wheels enjoy the responsive feel of Neo hubs with their 6-pawl system offering an impressive 10-degree engagement. Although this wheel is made for modern thru-axles, Stans includes interchangeable end caps for riders with older quick-release skewers on their XC bike.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
