Exactly what they are built for!
Can you build them in time for XC Nationals? We pulled out all of the stops to get these LOWMASS CARBON XC RACE MTB wheels out in time to be ridden this weekend. The 30mm internal width and 355g rim weight punches well above its price! These will be put to work by one of our super fast Supported Riders 🙂
The best lube is back in stock!
LOWMASS XA25-440 Aluminium XC MTB wheelset. This set was built with Centre Lock boost hubs so the existing discs could be used. By building every wheelset here in the UK, we can tweak the spec to suit your preferences and offer free truing for life. Choose from a variety of hubs, spokes and spoke count.
Really good or just really expensive - that is the question?
We do the testing so you don't have to... We'll report back!
We do more than just CX wheels!
ĹOWMASS Carbon XC Race (World Cup Level) Wheelset ready to drop some weight and add some width. This set is built with a Cannondale Lefty hub. Hand building in the UK means that not only do we have full quality control, we can tweak the spec to match your bike.
Our LOWMASS Aluminium XC MTB Wheels are available now. Sitting in the width, strength and weight sweet spot, they are step up compared to the stock wheels which come with most bikes. Their extra width (25mm internal) allows you to get the best performance from your tyres 👌

Ever thought of racing in weather and conditions that make you run for the thermostat like a scolded cat?
Then cyclocross is probably not for you….
But if you’re still scrolling and you fancy joining in with the other like minded nutters @nova_race_team then get over to their bio and apply for the 2022/23 season 🙌
This is cool.
Come and watch if you can, but if not watch online...
Super Sunday – and it’s live. 📺 😍

Spot the difference?
One set is the 1436g LOWMASS Multi-Purpose Carbon Tubeless Wheelset - the other is the 1343g Super Light version.
With carbon rims you can not tell a book by its cover, what is going on underneath is most important.
'Tis the season..... for adding grip!

But this is awesomer....
This is AWESOME!!!
Testing Testing. These days it pays to have options. We're starting our testing on a new Lightweight Aluminium Tubeless rim today, together with Challenge Tires new Limus Handmade Tubeless and Tubolight CX liners. This time with Effetto Mariposa Caffelatex sealant. We're pretty sure the tyres will need to bed in before we get a reliable seal, but we'll report back. (There is nothing wrong with the current Lightweight Aluminium Tubeless, it has been getting tricky to get through production this year...)
Challenge Tires Limus HTLR are arriving in the coming days. Combine with Tubolight CX liners for a premium tubeless set up. Read our full review to hear what they are really like

Good luck people!
May your tubeless tyres pass the 33mm test, and huge gaps appear to help you to make up for a random grid position. Go well everyone and enjoy a World class weekend.
Hand built doesn't guarantee well built... Your LOWMASS wheels are precision built by hand here in the UK so not only are they hand built, they are well built too! Talk to us about what you'd like built for road, gravel or MTB, we have some lovely options for 2022. These road rim brake wheels fit into the goldilocks category of "just right", and built with lovely Emerald Green hubs have a personal touch too.
Over the last week or so I've been hearing locally (Wessex) that people are planning on missing out ShamXross - Regional Championships Western & Wessex Cyclo-Cross League (WCCL R8)...
Some are saying "it looks too serious for me", some think "what is the point - I'm not going to win", some think "I'll get a worse result than normal because of the Western riders", some say that "I don't like the course" and some think "it is too far away".
Race organisers need "normal" entry numbers to make events viable.
But for the reasons above, Regional Championships have historically had lower entries, adding huge pressure to organiser's budgets. This makes organiser's think twice about running a Regional Championship event.
I think having and supporting Regional Championships is important. A seperate to the League, one off day race, where medals and trophies can be won, is an excellent addition to the season.
If you can support Kevin and his team please enter, so far entries are worryingly low.
