What feels better than passing a mountain biker on the trail while gripping the hoods of your cross bike? Not much, but the CR 1600 SPLINE offers more than that. Whether you are cutting through mud, dancing on icy, frozen trails, or exploring dusty desert roads, you will feel the great efficiency of these wheels. Wide straight-pull spokes attached to a beautifully machined, high end Ratchet System hub will keep encouraging you to attack new challenges as soon as the last one is over, and the CR 1600 SPLINE is totally up to it.
Tubeless-ready rims are compatible with both standard and tubeless-ready tires. When a tubeless-ready tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The rim can always be used with a tube, as well, by simply removing the tubeless valve stem and installing a standard tube like you would with any non-tubeless tire.
