Shared features

These new wheelsets share a number of features, including an asymmetric rim profile with offset drilling to allow for more balanced spoke tension. Both wheelsets feature NoTubes Bead Seat Technology (BST) that makes tubeless inflation pain (and mess) free.

Complete wheelsets are hand-built at NoTubes' headquarters in Big Flats, New York. These new wheelsets roll on the company's Neo hubset, which features a six-pawl freehub with 10-degrees of engagement. These hubsets are compatible with all major axle standards. The Flow CB7 and Baron CB7 carbon wheels are covered by a seven-year warranty and lifetime crash replacement for the original owner. Both wheelsets are available now.
