Description of Stan's NoTubes ZTR Alpha 340 Comp Wheelset Clincher
Superb ride quality!
The fast Stan's NoTubes ZTR Alpha 340 Comp wheelset features Stan's 3.30R front hub with improved threaded end caps and lighter weight. The 3.30R rear hub is designed to provide increased lateral wheel stiffness. This wheelset is the best in its class and offers tubeless ready goodness for road or cyclocross. All this while still providing the one of a kind ride quality of the Alpha 340 rim at an affordable price.
Exceedingly smooth, extraordinarily fast and unquestionably the next step forward in performance. The installed Alpha 340 rim represents the first implementation of Bead Socket Technology (BST) for the road and cyclocross market. The short sidewalls and wide inside rim cavity allow for lower tire pressure while maintaining a firm tire feel with decreased rolling resistance and a more compliant ride quality. The low weight and semi-aero profile of the Alpha 340 makes for a fast accelerating, stiff and strong wheel built to meet the needs of every rider.
At just 385 grams, the Alpha 340 rim is many things to many different people - a lightweight climber, a super fast crit racer, a long distance trainer or anything in between. Make no mistake though, they are designed to handle some abuse as well, evidenced by being ridden to a Masters Cyclocross World Championship just months after being introduced.
The installed rim features a black anodized finish with a machined brake track for consistent braking performance and can be used tubed or tubeless.
2 layers of Stan's yellow rim tape and valves are already installed for tubeless use.
