Major Tom

This past weekend seemed to be a big weekend for 'cross. Lots of race series starting up and excitement for the sport growing more than it ever has. In fact, Jacobi is still celebrating his win at the Kisscross - Highland Park A race and Matt getting out for the first time on his new All-City Nature Boy with A23's. Actually Jacobi has been super humble about it.

On that note, we continue our Interbike highlights with thoughts of 'cross and CrossVegas, we can't help but think of our latest rim and wheelset, the Major Tom...

Tubular. Wide. Fast.

The Major Tom brings together everything you have been looking for when taking that next step in the cyclocross circuit Combining qualities from our popular A23 clincher and Escape tubular rims, the 23mm wide Major Tom provides improved traction for unparalleled ground control. Designed with an 11mm braking surface for precise handling and braking, along with our seam relief channel which allows for consistent and reliable tubular tire installation.

The Major Tom Pro and Comp builds are built up on our brand new Race Hubs [Front: 78 grams, Rear: 256 grams]. The Pro Build is a 24/28 combination built with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples, total build weight of 1500 grams. The Comp Build is a 28/32 combination with DT Swiss Competition spokes coming in at 1725 grams!


And to help you get through the hell that can be a Wednesday, some videos for you... 'Cross-approved!

  1. It seems MT is still floating in space because I don't know where to find a set of these yet? What's the MSRP and what is the axle size of the hubs?
