Tandem riding is all about trust. The Leviathan is a bombproof wheel worthy of the same faith you put in your teammate. The Leviathan, the mother of all high strength tandem wheels, boasts 40 spokes front and rear. It’s for those seeking the stoutest wheel they can find with all the modern features they could dream of.
The USA-made aerodynamic 32mm rim profile and 19.5mm internal width offer a stout, aero, yet comfortable wheelset for the long, heavy-duty haul. The Leviathan Tandem is a great option for larger teams or loaded touring. With hubs from our long-time USA-made partner, White Industries, and a Tubeless Easy rim profile for tire installation that you can easily set up at home, it checks all the boxes.
All Astral wheels are hand-built in Eugene, Oregon.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
