The Wanderlust is a gravel wheel ready for epic mixed-surface and dirt road rides as well as cyclocross. With an internal width of 22mm, it’s the "Goldilocks" wheelset offering easy frame clearance without compromising the ability to run a wide range of tire sizes, all while keeping the weight down. We improve the stiffness, strength, and longevity of the wheel by using an asymmetric (ASYM) rim design than improves spoke tension balance by up to 30%. On the trail, this translates to balanced handling and precision steering you can rely on in even the most demanding conditions. The tubeless easy design manages the low tire pressure, high torque environment of 'cross with ease, but is also able to run higher pressure road tires for a supple and reliable ride all day. This USA-born best-seller will be a perfect companion year-round — from rainy commutes to summer mixed-surface centuries, fall muddy races, and beyond.
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.
