elite-level aluminum wheels for xc/trail.
our unique wheel design reduces rotational inertia by redistributing mass closer to the hub. the result is improved performance, faster acceleration and deceleration. crankbrothers wheels spin up faster than traditional wheels.
the power of triangles
our twinpair spoke design forms triangulated load bearing structures, providing superior strength and lateral stiffness, with just 24 spokes per wheel.
simple to service
single spoke lengths, replaceable without removing the cassette, rotor, or tire.
ride optimized and tubeless ready
cobalt rims are specifically designed around the lightweight needs and tire widths of xc/trail racers.
