Stans Crest Carbon CB7 29er MTB Wheelset
The long awaited Stan's Crest rims are now available in carbon enabling us to put together this lovely recommended build at a highly competitive price point.
Stan's Crest CB7 Carbon Rims - All carbon rims are not created equal. If your carbon rim is too stiff, you’re losing speed and risking tire pinch flats. The Crest CB7 rim with RiACT absorbs radial vibrations and damps impacts. It’s a difference you can feel in the ride of the bike almost instantly. First introduced with our legendary Valor rim, our impact absorbing RiACT technology has evolved to be more responsive and even more durable. The Crest CB7’s new layup and rim shape allows for 10mm of radial compliance to absorb larger impacts. The new rim also matches the Valor’s strength while using less material to save weight. And when it comes to the lateral stiffness needed for steering precision and control, the new CB7 layup delivers. Wider than the original Valor while still optimized for XC tire widths, the Crest CB7 keeps you in control and rolling faster.
