The Solstice is a lightweight wheel ready to climb. Tilting the scales at a svelte 1490g (White Industries CLD build) the Solstice beats out many carbon counterparts for speedy climbs without sacrificing durability.
With three premium hub options to choose from, there’s a perfect build for every rider. All Astral Cycling wheels are hand-built in Eugene, Oregon and feature Tubeless Easy rims you can easily set up at home.
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.
