A mid-weight disc wheelset designed for cross and gravel grinding, this works for road bikes with disc systems, too. The rims are 30mm deep for aero gains, and an internal width of 21mm and 24.6mm externally suits the high-volume tires you need for smoothing out gravel roads. The rims can easily converted to tubeless if you want better puncture protection.
