The Astral Outback is for the big days. Epics that demand a little more. For riders that go all-day (or night) and for whom "mixed-surface" means trails, fire roads or whatever the backcountry dishes out.
These hoops are for adventuring, and that means getting out there - leaving the traffic behind, picking a journey, and riding through to the end. The Great Divide Route. The Oregon Outback. Colorado Trail. Or that spur off your commute that you've always been curious about. Because single track leads to good things.
Astral improved the stiffness, strength, and longevity of their gravel and trail wheels by using an asymmetric (ASYM) rim design that improves spoke tension balance by up to 30%. This translates to balanced handling and precision steering you can rely on in even the most demanding conditions. They're hand-built by pro-wheel builders and hardcore riders that know first-hand what a good adventure requires.
Offered in both 700c/29" and 650b/27.5" options with three premium hubs to choose from, there's a perfect build for every rider. All Astral Cycling wheels are hand-built in Eugene, Oregon, and feature Tubeless Easy rims you can easily set up at home.
