The 29 XT Race wheels offer UST tubeless and aluminum rims with 20mm internal widths for the lightweight wheelset you need to power both up and down the mountain.
A focus on weight reduction and durability has driven the latest DEORE XT wheel development. Each rim provides a wider platform for modern mountain bike tires while also saving 40 grams over previous models. All wheels use 28 butted spokes.
TL-Tubeless Compatible Rim
Rims designed with SHIMANO Tubeless System combine a UST-profile tubeless rim bead section and dedicated sealing tape. Get the superior sealing performance of UST, plus an easy and reliable taping profile.
The tool-less type thru-axle skewer system optimizes rigidity and weight balance and enables easy operation with a reliable internal cam mechanism and new fixing structure. The 15mm thru-axle system is 15% stiffer torsionally and 25% stiffer in transverse shear than a traditional 9mm Quick Release front axle system. High rigidity is secured while keeping the optimum weight balance. The E-THRU Axle hub system minimizes the distortion of suspension while maintaining lightweight for riding around sharp corners at high speed.
