'Cross is here! Are you ready?
Tubular wheels remain the high-performance standard in cyclocross racing, for good reason. They allow racers to run lower pressure tires in soft or muddy conditions, with less chance of getting a flat. When you are ready to take your 'cross racing to the next level, the Urbane tubular cyclocross wheelset is a great upgrade option.
Based around a 23mm-wide niobium-alloy Kinlin tubular rim, these wheels are lighter and stiffer than many factory or stock cross wheels, and can be customized to suit your riding style and experience. 'Stock' wheelsets start at $600, and weigh only 1,570g . Custom upgrade options include alloy nipples, bladed spokes, and custom lacing. Available in Shimano or Campagnolo freehubs (11-spd compatible).
All Urbane tubular cyclocross wheels, stock or custom, are built by hand by Urbane's experienced wheelbuilding team, using the best practices and materials in the industry.
Lightweight, handbuilt wheels are one of the best performance upgrades you can make on a bike. Our handbuilt wheels use lightweight yet durable components to make your bike accelerate and climb faster, while offering better cornering and braking performance. By carefully selecting great value components with proven performance, we can offer wheelsets that compete with boutique wheel brands at a fraction of the cost.
