Designed to reduce the harsh ride feeling, both the 700c and the 650b carbon wheel sets from Santa Cruz are aimed at those who prefer their bikes to have thinner wheels and no suspension.
Where most other brands are delivering deep section rims that are optimized for aerodynamics, resulting in a harsh ride, Santa Cruz have taken a more low profile approach to the 700c rim. This results in a much more comfortable ride. Using their knowledge of building carbon wheels, these 700c hoops use 24 offset spoke drilling and Sapim CX-Ray spokes for maximum strength, compliance and comfort.
They also feature a bead hook that provides burp resistance at low pressures and will take tyres between 30-45mm.
The new 650b Gravel wheel looks very much like their bigger brothers seen on Mountain Bikes with a low profile design but takes the same 24 offset spoke drilling and Sapim CX-Ray spokes for maximum strength, compliance and comfort. The 650b has a wider internal width than the 700c (700c is 22mm internal) at 25mm which allows for wider tyres to be run if that’s what you’re looking for.
Both wheels are available pre-built on a selection of hubs from DT Swiss or Chris King and are covered by the amazing Santa Cruz Lifetime warranty.
