For over 15 years we've been the name in light and reliable tandem wheels. We've upped the game yet again.
The new Tandem Carbon Race takes cues from the best-in-class Ares6 carbon race wheels with 60mm deep, tubeless compatible, carbon rims. The Tandem Carbon Race is then built upon our US-made XST Tandem hub platform, with its titanium freehub and T2 High Engagement for immediate engagement and long life, no matter how much torque you and your partner throw down.
The new 20mm internal rim width allows wider tires, making these perfect for the tandem team looking for every advantage for races and regular rides. As with all of our wheels, these are built by hand in Eugene, Oregon.
*Approved by tire manufacturer, IRC, for tubeless compatibility using IRC Formula Pro Tubeless X-Guard, 700x28c.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
