Built By Jerry | Cross

Regular price $1,750.00






Cross: This one is pretty obvious, the Cross is my mainstay cyclocross racing tubular wheel. The Cross is a 35mm deep, 25mm wide rim designed to balance weight with aerodynamic performance considering our typically fast American style races. Anything deeper is unnecessarily heaving and can be a too stiff and harsh vertically, in my experience. That makes the bike chatter and ride harsh on stutter bumps and generally negatively affecting traction. A mid depth like 35mm is perfect. The Cross is still exceptionally light at 1,300-1,380 grams depending on hub selection. 

These wheels remain my go to for courses with fast cornering and the associated high lateral forces and hard accelerations. The Cross will corner on rails and sprint like a road wheel while the WCX will ride softer and maintain better ground contact and follow the track on technical chutes or ruts, while pulling 100 grams weight off for those run ups. For European style courses with more running, elevation gain, and technical sections, consider the GCX. 

The Cross is disc only, laced 24H two cross front and rear. Through axles are not included as they are part of the bike-frame system.

Quick and responsive!

This wheel set is my go-to for most cross courses. Has a great feel and gives me confidence through corners. It's definitely a stiffer platform than the WCX and rides more similar to a medium-depth road wheel set. The rim is super durable and has impressed me when I've taken some rim-strikes during races that would've cracked other rims. Overall I've been really happy running these wheels for all the fast courses here in New England.

Still going strong

My set of Cross tubulars is going on their 4th bike and they've required zero service in 5 years. Speaks volumes to the exacting build quality that these are still straight and true despite years of smashing roots I didn't see. Built up on DT hubs means that I can put them on any bike with some end caps which has paid off as they've seen QR, 15mm and now 12mm duty.
