Bring on the gravel.
The Wanderlust is a gravel wheel ready for epic mixed-surface and dirt road rides as well as cyclocross. With an internal width of 22mm, it is the 'Goldilocks' wheelset offering easy frame clearance without compromising the ability to run a wide range of tire sizes while keeping the weight down.
Astral improves the stiffness, strength, and longevity of a wheel by using an asymmetric (ASYM) rim design that improves spoke tension balance by up to 30%. On the trail, this translates to balanced handling and precision steering you can rely on in even the most demanding conditions. The tubeless easy design manages the low tire pressure, high torque environment of 'cross with ease, but is also able to run higher pressure road tires for a supple and reliable ride all day. This USA-born best-seller will be a perfect companion year-round — from rainy commutes to summer mixed-surface centuries, muddy fall races, and beyond.
All Astral Cycling wheels are hand-built in Eugene, Oregon, and feature Tubeless Easy rims you can easily set up at home.

For a rock-solid mountain, gravel or disc-road hubset, look no further than the Astral Approach by White Industries.

Great alloy wheel for light gravel ./ all-road

I have about 70 miles on these, half dirt half road on my Surly midnight special. They come pre-taped for tubeless and include a cassette spacer and tubeless valves in the box. Well built and well packed. The hubs are rebranded White Industries CLD but with a steel freehub body instead of titanium. I prefer the steel for durability as I have other WI hubs and the cassettes tear into the TI freehub body. Anyway, the wheels roll fast in the dirt and on the road with Gravelking SK in 35mm. Seem very durable, no sign of going out of true under my 190 pounds (excluding gear). With the pre-installed tape they weighed in 970 rear and 807 front for 1777 combined or about 67 grams over advertised weight. They are made in the USA, serve my needs for a not-too-wide gravel wheel, and look fantastic. Very happy with the product and the company.
