We love our ‘cross at Stayer and this is our ultimate Cyclocross racing wheel set. Race proven these wheels have brought a multitude of riders to local victories, league wins and even the UK National Championships podium in 2019. And of course a lot of fun!
This wheelset is built with DT350 Centerlock hubs as standard (as they are simply amazing) but we also offer some excellent HUBgrade options if a different hub set tickles your fancy!We build all of our wheels to order anyway.
Cross is all about accelerations and decelerations, bumps, impacts, slipping and sliding, and every time the bike gets a hose down at the end. That’s what these wheels are made for; they are strong and durable with no compromises made on quality of components and build, we use all the best bits for the job.
On top of that they are lightweight, fast and hand built to order by a Belgian cyclocross nut.
Because ‘cross is a little different from other disciplines and a serious rider might want several wheel sets we offer a bulk-discount on these builds; 10% OFF for 3 sets or more.
and we like to know who (and what) we're building for as you might need a few more spokes, or a few less, or maybe you need brass nipples rather than alloy, or maybe you'd prefer silver spokes to black..!
So please do pop some information in the order notes about your weight, your intended use, and anything else you'd like to say so that we can make that this wheel set is built absolutely right for you.
Our tubular CX rims are specifically designed for cyclocross tubs to be glued perfectly throughout the width and length of the base tape; the rims are wide with a shallow rim bed curve, the perfect shape for your tubs. There are no grooves to fill with a moat of glue in order to get it to stick, it just sticks and then you can try to roll it off.

DT350 CYCLOCROSS WHEELSET SPECS
These are top value performance hubs - a durable but lightweight design with a unique and flawless patented star ratchet system for perfect transmission of power. Quality bearings that last like none other (honestly!) and these are the only hubs we have ever worked with which just do not develop play. They really are basically flawless.
It’s not the tradition in selling wheels but we round up our weights, better that they turnout slightly lighter than heavier when you get them out of the box.
If you'd like us to install your tubs or tubeless tyres please just get in touch !We can also provide and install tubulars by Challenge and clinchers or tubeless tyres by any brand (I think!); WTB, Schwalbe, Hutchinson, Vittoria, Michelin, Panaracer etc.
HUB UPGRADE (HUBGRADE™) OPTIONS!
Lancashire made quality hubs which can add a some extra sound effects and/or a nice bit of bling to your bike! They are beautifully engineered, durable and versatile - one of the great features for off-road use being the option of a steel Shimano free-hub body; at no extra cost (but at an extra 85g) these are a great choice if you're a powerful rider and/or carry weight on adventures and prioritise durability over weight-saving.
DT SWISS LEVEL UPS !
So the 350s are amazing as they are, they genuinely are. But recently DT Swiss have further HUBgraded their lighter models - the 240 and the 180 making them even better, rather than predominantly 'just lighter'. Both now have the new Ratchet EXP Technology which has a higher ratchet count (=faster engagement), faster full engagement, wider spacing on the rear hub body bearings (= increased axle stiffness and bearing lifespan, which would be impressive as DT Swiss 350 are already the very best in that regard), even lighter yet, easier to disassemble and service .. and the finish looks ace.
DT240 EXP HUBS:
Made in the Black Forest! Which you will find in Germany. These are absolutely beautifully made, high quality and above all super light hubs. They also come in some stunning colours and with different bearing options - Standard, Enduro and Ceramic - please just get in touch for a quote for a bearing up-or-down-grade !
