Cycling Weekly Verdict

Stan’s NoTubes have been blowing the tubeless trumpet for a long time now, and their wheels are a good place to start if you’re considering the transition. The disc-specific hub on these Iron Cross wheels remains the same through the range, but distributor Paligap has only chosen to offer this ‘Team' model, which is fine with us, as they’re the best overall wheel in the range.

At 1510grams, Stan’s NoTubes Iron Cross Team disc wheelset is an easy weight saver over a pair of entry-level wheels that come supplied with most disc equipped cyclocross bikes.

The real reason you’d buy some Stan’s though is for the tubeless compatibility. With the ability to run without innertubes, there’s the potential to save at least an extra 200 grams through this setup.
