At 1575g, our value-focused mtb wheelset is light enough for XC race day, but the 30mm width, asymmetric (ASYM) carbon rim is still suitable for fat tires and rowdy trails. This wheelset offers the same hub internals and rim as the high-end Alsea at a lower price by using a heat-treated steel free-hub body. The weight penalty is minimal, durability is equivalent, and price is nice.
Concerned about 24H paired spokes? Don’t be. Paired-spoke construction allows for lower spoke (and lesser weight) wheels to build as strong or stronger than traditional lacings comprised of 4-6 additional spokes. The resulting sprightly, snappy ride, point-and-shoot reliability and decreased weight all add up to a mountain bike wheel like none other.
As always, the Alsea 30 LS is hand built in Oregon and ships ready for easy tubeless set up.
*We do our best to ship your wheel order ASAP, but because many wheel orders are built to order, please allow up to one week for shipment once your order is processed. Custom orders like color hubs, rims and decals may take up to two weeks.
