Designed for cross-country enthusiasts, these aluminum rims improve upon the previous model with a slight width increase and a minimal weight increase. Meant to improve stability on the ride, these changes make for a softer feeling ride that allows you to ride over rocks and bumpy trails with fewer shocks and jolts. These rims come in sizes 24", 26", 27.5", and 29" and are compatible with tires between 2.0" and 2.25" wide.
Please note that when selecting this item, the links lead to slightly varied types of this product, so please pay attention to the product description and make sure that you are selecting the correct size that you want to purchase. When used with tires that fall outside the size range listed above, these rims are not nearly as effective, so double check the specs of your tires before your purchase.
Many of the reviews surrounding this product claim that the Crest rims are very light, but this also makes them more flexible than the previous model. Several user reviews of this product indicate that when they are used on rough terrain, these rims don't hold up as well as the Arch or Flow models. On the other hand, these rims make for a stable and controlled ride and are great if you ride mostly paved paths. These rims seem to come with a lot of pros and cons, and we would recommend checking out a forum or two to make sure that these rims suit your riding style.
If you're in the market for light and flexible rims that make for a fun ride on a paved trail, the Crest MK3 rims may be the ones for you.
