The all-new CXR 2 gravel WheelSystem showcases Giant’s prowess in building strong, lightweight carbon wheels. Through improved carbon layup, innovative hookless technology and a large inner rim width that allows for wider tires and lower pressures, the CXR 2 is as strong as our XCR cross-country mountain bike wheel but clocks in at a much lighter weight.
Hookless rim design enhances overall durability and offers a wider inner rim width without adding weight
Optimized carbon layup features high-tensile strength carbon fiber placed at the most crucial structural points to provide stiff, compliant and lightweight wheels
A 35mm rim profile with a contemporary wider inner width offers improved support for today’s higher volume road and gravel tires

The all-new Giant CXR 2 WheelSystem combines several innovative technologies that make it lightweight and strong.
Placing high-tensile strength carbon fiber at only the most crucial points on the rim and testing through Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Giant’s engineers have managed to build a lightweight gravel wheel with superior strength and durability.
Optimzied for Wider Tires
Optimized for 38-40mm gravel tires but also capable handling XC tires up to 2.3”
Hookless Rim Design
Hookless technology enhances overall durability, increases impact resistance and offers a wider inner rim width without adding weight
Hookless rim design enhances overall durability, offers a wider inner rim width without adding extra weight and also helps create a more round tire shape providing superior grip and handling as well as added sidewall support when cornering. Additionally, without the rim hook to “push” the tire bead inward, hookless rim design offers a more seamless airflow between the tire and the sidewall of the rim, resulting in less drag and improved aero performance when compared to standard hook-type rims.
