As of August 18, 2017, this wheelset is not available due to the WTB rims being discontinued.  As soon as I find a rim brake tubeless rim that is similar to this rims in specifications (width and weight), I’ll update this wheelset.  RIP WTB ChrisCross i19 rim, you were a great rim.

I am continually impressed with this simple rim.  It’s the main rim I ride on my cross bike.  Simple box section.  Tubeless compatible.  Tubeless compatible? What does that mean.  It means that the rim well profile is such that it has this shelf at the bead that helps lock a tire bead in place.  With the addition of tire sealant, this means you can run your tires without tubes.  And that means you can run lower tire pressure without the risk of pinch flats.  Lower pressure – better traction, more comfort.  This wheelset is a great addition to the Black Mountain Cycles Monster Cross frames.  Rim brakes and tubeless – what a great combo.

The Tubeless Rim Brake wheelset is built with WTB ChrisCross i19 rims, DT Swiss Competition double-butted 2.0/1.8/2.0 spokes and a choice of hubs.
