What is it?
Based on our all-new Pinnacle tubeless rim, we created a tubular version with a 32mm radius rim bed to give perfect edge-to-edge tire gluing. The massive surface area gives enormous adhesion and peace of mind when PSIs are dwindling into the single digits on sloppy race courses, keeping tires from slipping off the rim while offering superb traction in terrible conditions. At 36mm deep, the 400g Pinnacle CX’s rim depth offers added aerodynamics and mud shedding you’d need in a cross race, along with plenty of acceleration and stiffness balanced by an offset rim design.
Quest Disc Brake Hubs
Built on the quick engaging, tool free, durable Quest hubs. This centerlock disc brake hub comes on the heart of every Podium level wheelset.
Designed for Cross racing
This is not a road wheel that can also be used for cross. This is your dedicated cross wheelset, designed to give you every advantage with tire and pressure selection. Combine that with the strength to survive the harsh conditons and the wheels will be the least of your concerns.
Whether you are searching for a beer hand up, or sliding around in the mud, have confidence in the Enduro sealed bearings and seals of the Quest hubs. Extremely easy maintenance means you'll never have any downtime because of a wheel that needs service.
Rim adhesion + traction
The massive surface area gives enormous adhesion and peace of mind when PSIs are dwindling into the single digits on sloppy race courses, keeping tires from slipping off the rim while offering superb traction in terrible conditions.
Why do I need it?
It seems like only yesterday that cyclocross racing was the accessible darling of every blog, hipster, and handbuilder, bound to make competitive cycling a mass-participation sport. Then came the advent of gravel, and everyone forgot about Belgium’s native sport. But us? We haven’t yet forgotten the taste of blood in our mouths on the final run-up of the last lap. What we have wanted to forget? Rolling a tire off the rim in the critical corner right afterward.
Cross racing puts unique demands on tires, glue bonds, and traction, some that are afforded only by the ultra-low pressures riders can run with tubulars, and owing to this we set to work creating the ultimate CX racing wheel – the Pinnacle CX.
Your wheels deserve the human touch. Our wheelbuilders put the same care into every wheelset that they would their own. Whether you are just riding for fun or winning a national championship, you deserve the confidence in knowing your wheels are built right.
