The Alloy Lightweight Contender — Solstice Approach by White Industries
The Astral Solstice Approach Disc Brake Wheelset is a light-weight wheel set ready to climb. These come in lighter than many carbon wheelsets, without sacrificing durability.
The Approach hubset is built for Astral Cycling by long-time partner White Industries. It includes the same internal mechanisms as their classic CLD hub but features a bomber heat-treated steel freehub body at a nominal 28-gram weight sacrifice.
All Astral wheels are hand-built in Eugene, Oregon, and feature Tubeless Ready rims you can easily set up at home.
