No one does budget friendly, freeride ready, bullet proof wheelsets like Azonic. Their popular candy colored Outlaw wheelset has taken a beating on the clapped out bikes of this generations of groms, and survived unscathed.
Now that big hucks are out and trail riding is hip, Azonic is switching paces with it’s new Outcast XC wheelset. Built by attaching the spoke head at the rim, they’re anything but light at 1790 grams, and only rated for XC and light trail riding, but given the companies track record – these wheels might survive Hayes 9 Brakes and cockroaches.
Head past the break for all the details…
Azonic has taken it to the next level by reversing how a wheel is built. By attaching the spoke head at the rim, Azonic can increase the spoke nut length and strengthen the wheels overall construction. Over-length spoke nuts are longer and bigger in diameter than a standard spoke running the same distance across the wheel so any flex between the hub and rim is greatly reduced. Wheel strength and stiffness is increased without sacrificing weight. Azonic Outcast wheels are designed for XC and light trail riding featuring a 4 bearing rear hub, oversized front hub and the many options for axle configurations.”
