- UST 29er wheel
All UST are tubeless but all tubeless aren’t UST. Many non UST rims are convertible to tubeless these days with the correct rim tape/strip. It’s a different system to UST though which was pioneered by Mavic.
Stans rims are excellent, easily convertible and shallow making inflating simplePosted 4 years agohatterSubscriber
In theory full UST system uses non-drilled, generally Mavic rims and dedicated UST tyres with no sealant.
In practice UST rims just make a standard setup with normal tyres and sealant that bit easier as you don’t need a rim strip and you don’t get any leakage through the spoke holes.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’ve seen some very varying weights for the new 821 but if the better weights are correct then it’s probably a good ‘un, built to the hubs of your choice. If the worse weights are correct then it’s probably not. If it were the claimed weight it’d be great but that’s the one thing it’s definitely not.
Dubious of Roval these days, I’ve got some older ones which are really nice wheelsets but every time I see a current model it’s made of dents, they seem to be pretty soft.Posted 4 years ago
