Front Wheel
Show Details
One of the lightest mountain rim options, Stan's ZTR Crest blends features of a ZTR Race rim with a ZTR 355, making it the best of both worlds. This rim offers the wall thickness and corresponding durability of a ZTR 355 with next generation BST (ball and socket technology), creating a wider rim with shorter sidewalls. The ZTR Crest 26-inch rim features a fully welded seam and can be used with a standard tire/tube combination or tubeless tire.

Weight: 340 grams (32 hole)
Drilling: 32 hole

Valve and rim strip are NOT included.
