I guess these Crank Bros wheelsets came out at the start of the year but I only saw them properly in the new issue of Dirt mag. Stunning design and they look really strong too. Would love to try some on my Meta.
Crank Bros. uses the same unique 24 spoke build pattern throughout their five wheel lineup, which speaks volumes about their confidence in the design. While visually stunning at first, the paired 24 spokes do actually still use a nipple and stainless steel spokes, but you may have to have a second look to see how they have switched up the status quo. Instead of using a traditional brass nipple out at the rim, the Iodine’s use a long aluminum straight pull nipple that reaches out from the hub shell and joins a stainless spoke at about the halfway point.
