    2011 products: WTB Stryker Wheels, AClass Wheels, Hutchinson Tires

    Hey All,

    Recently got back from a media event in Deer Valley, Utah and covered some exciting new products from WTB, AClass, and Hutchinson.


    <b>WTB</b> released their new tubeless compatible Stryker Wheels...full report is here(some pix of their new Bronson 2.3 tire, too):

    Watch the vid:

    <b>AClass Wheels:</b>
    I have to admit, I don't really know all the much about AClass Wheels. I know of Alex Rims (AClass Wheels is a division of Alex)...my Surly Cross Check came with Alex rims. They've been known for less expensive "budget" products, but with the AClass brand, they are trying to change that, here in the states. There wheels looked very nice...any of you guys out there have AClass wheels? How do you like them?

    They prices on their wheels seem very reasonable...hopefully with the right US distribution, they will be readily available.

    <b>Hutchinson</b>
    Dana Carson from Hutchinson Tire NA was on hand to show the new versions of their TORO and COBRA tires (and some road tubeless tires as well, 'natch).

    So how much does a set of Strykers weigh, are those bladed spokes proprietary, will they have a 20mm front hub, and do they use low tension on the spokes like the stans wheels since they have no eyelets

    Saw the new WTB wheels in person last weekend. They look promising. The free hub body has steel inserts on the load side of a few edges to prevent gouging from the cogs. Genius.

    Why do they recommend 62mm max tires on both the 19mm and 23mm rims?

    The Bronson tires look awesome... kind of a beefed up old style Weirwolf. I bet they will be great in the mud.
