Nice 'cross clinchers!08/29/2017 ByMichael Jenkins I live in SoCal, so when I'm training for 'cross, I'm going to be riding a lot of hardpack and/or loose rocks. I wanted a set of tubeless clinchers that I could install 35mm tires on and do fast training, and maybe racing if the course has hardpack. The A300AS has wide rims, and the WTB tubeless tires installed easily. The wheels are fairly light also, over 250 grams lighter than my usual clincher wheels. I was confident that the wheels would be OK for this use despite their light weight, but to be sure, I asked John Neugent for his opinion, and he assured me they'd be good. So I've had them and ridden them for a month, and I haven't had a single problem. They're fast and responsive, and surprisingly stiff. Much more fun than riding a set of clinchers that are necessarily pumped up too high. I opted for the round spokes to save some money, and having now ridden them I think they're the better choice for 'cross. Final note: the red anodized hubs look great on my red Focus. Excellent value.
