The Podium SRD earned major wins at the B.C. Bike Race and U.S. Marathon National Championships while it was still only in development and stands out as Stan's fastest and lightest racing wheel. Stan's patented BST rim shape has been taken even further by decreasing sidewall height and updating Stan's carbon layup process to shave even more weight where it matters most. Though the 300g Podium SRD rim is Stan's lightest carbon rim, it's every bit as strong as Stan's acclaimed Valor and 15% stiffer laterally, thanks in big part to the evolution of Stan's impact absorbing technology. The new RiACT rim shape and lay up is able to deflect 11% more than the Valor, which translates into fewer pinch flats, added durability, and less rolling resistance. The Podium SRD is laced with Sapim Laser triple-butted spokes and mechanically locking alloy nipples. Combined with Stan's Neo Ultimate hub with updated Speedsync bearing and axle design and near instantaneous engagement, the Podium SRD is purpose built for racing, and ready to live up to its name.
Podium SRD wheels include pre-installed tape for tubeless use and presta valve; 12x142mm rear wheels also include quick-release end caps and quick release.

Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
