One of the wheelsets that came out of our stash of polished Astral Radiant rims was this stunner! 🤩  With silver Sapim CX-Ray spokes radiating out from the pink White Industries CLD hubs to the gorgeously-polished rims, these wheels are anything but understated, but when they look this good, who cares about being understated? 

 

 

 

As we've said before, White Industries makes some of the lowest-drag hubs around, so they're perfect on a road bike, where you don't want to be getting slowed-down by a draggy freehub.  Add to that the light weight, clean centerlock rotor interface, and great looks of the CLD hubs, and you're got a really solid choice to make form the axis of your wheels.

 

 

Astral Cycling's Limited Edition Polished Radiant rims have a really nice semi-aero profile that makes them perfect for long days in the saddle.  There's just enough depth to help out on the flat sections without adding a bunch of extra weight to slow you down on the climbs, and the finish is simply next-level.  These rims have to be seen to be appreciated fully.

All in all, this is just a great all-around road wheelset!

This week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.

Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
