Crankbrothers Cobalt Wheels Without Spoke Holes

The Cobalt is Crankbrothers’ latest cross-country wheelset. At just 1540 grams per set, the special design of these rims and spokes makes the wheel light in weight without sacrificing strength. The strikingly different look is more than aesthetic.

The wheelset is designed with no spoke holes drilled into the rim. The absence of spoke holes makes it extremely stiff, strong, and tubeless compatible. The spokes connect at vertical tabs that are part of the i-beam rim extrusion.

There are 24 twinpair spokes and twelve points of connection. With this system, the spoke is paired for low-dish symmetry and balanced tension. Included with the wheels is a set of new split QR levers. The lever has been split in two, so that each side of the lever can be opened and closed independently.
