The Crest MK3 wheelset combines our lightest aluminum rim with our simple and quick-engaging Neo hub and lightweight and reliable Sapim spokes and nipples.

The original Crest rim helped introduce XC racers everywhere to the performance advantages of tubeless. Today’s Crest MK3 is wider and even more versatile, while keeping all the characteristics that make Crest rims so fast on the course. Though wider, the Crest MK3 rim is even lighter than previous versions to accelerate quicker and attack the climbs.
